Question about NetGear MR814 Wireless Router
I purchased th router 3 years ago so I no longer have the software. I need to know where to go in the computer to find the router to lock it.
Usualy small home routers are managed using a web interface, so there is not need for a special software. I say "usualy" because you did not specify the brand and model of your router, so I am assuming that you router behaves like the others.
First, you will need to find the IP address of your router. In order to do that, in Windows XP, click Start > Run and type "cmd". On the command line, type "ipconfig". Look at the "Default gateway" line, this should be the IP address for your router.
Then open a web browser such as Internet Explorer and type that IP address in the address bar. The web interface should open. It may ask you for a username and password. The username is usualy "admin" but the default password may differ from one manufacturer to another. Try leaving the password field empty. If it does not work try "admin" also as the password.
If it still does not work, having the brand and model of your router will be necessary to find the default password.
Everything should be explained in more details in the user manual of your router, if you still have it. It you don't, it may usualy be downloaded from the manufacturer support web site.
