Question about AT&T Computers & Internet
Posted by Anonymous on
If your high speed internet service box has multiple data outlets (RJ45 connectors) then it provides IP routing or switching; you can connect your LAN devices through the box (DSL?). If it only has a single data connector, then no, you would need to get an external router (wireless is best). These can be found for under $30 that do everything you need. Be sure to password protect your wireless network - see the set-up instructions for whatever router you get.

You may have to reset the router first there will be a button on the back get a paper clip and push it in for 5 seconds.
To open the set up page of the router of the router , one of your computer should be able to go online through the router.
It could be a wired computer or wireless computer.
If it is a wireless computer then make sure that the computer is connected to your own wireless network.
Do not change any wireless settings on the router using a wireless computer.
OK ! Now you have a computer online through the router and you want to open the set up page of the router.
First step is check the IP address of the computer.
Check the IP address and the Default gateway on the computer.
For Windows XP
START ==> RUN ==> type in cmd in the RUN box==> click OK or Hit ENTER . You will see a black window that is a command prompt . In the black window type in " ipconfig " ==> and Hit ENTER on your key board .
For Windows Vista and Windows 7
click on START ==> type in cmd in the start search box ==> enter ==> you will see the black window. Type in " ipconfig "you will see a lot of information. Try to find out the local area connection IPv4 address .
Note down the Default gateway number.
For MAC OS
Click APPLE icon in the right top corner of the computer. Go to System Preferences ==> go to Network ==> you will find the option Built in Ethernet or Airport whichever is connected. If you go to that you will find the Ip address and router Address.
The default gateway is the IP address of your router.
This IP address of the router will be used to open the set up page of the router
Now you got the IP address of the router.Open the Internet Browser ( Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari )
In the Address bar of the browser Type the IP address of the router.
Do not type http:// or www just type in the IP address only.
It will ask you for the user name and the password of the router.
This is the User name and the password of the router and NOT the wireless password. On a wireless router, there are 2 passwords. One is to access the router and the other one is for the wireless network.
For most of the routers the default password will be " admin " . for some routers the default password is " password ". For Linksys router the default password is admin and no user name.
