To access the router's web interface for configuration, you need a PC that's physically connected to the router (ethernet connection). Follow these steps:
Open your Internet browser and type the IP address of the router in the address bar (http://192.168.1.1
) . The default IP address is 192.168.1.1 . At the login, leave the username blank and type your password (default password is admin). Click the OK button.
To setup security, Click the Wireless tab > then select Wireless Security (right below the Wireless tab).
Under Wireless Security, you can either select WEP or WPA for wireless security.
When selecting WEP 64 bits: (for windows XP SP1 to Vista)
Look for Key 1 box - type a 10 hexadecimal password (meaning letters A to F or numbers 0 to 9 only). Example: ABC1234567 or 985D8A8F04 .
When selecting WEP 128 bits (for XP SP2 to Vista)
Look for Key 1 box - type a 26 character Hexadecimal code.
When selecting WPA PErsonal: (XP SP2 to Vista)
Look for a passphrase box - type a password at least 8 characters (numbers or letters).
Please DO NOT FORGET the password that you set - you will need this for wireless connection.
Click Save settings.
I hope that helps!
Good luck and have a nice day!
