D-Link Router Setup- Courtesy D-Link
To begin, plug the router into the wall using the power adapter that came with it. You should see the D-link's Power LED turn on. You'll next want to make sure your cable or DSL modem is unplugged. Next, you will take the Ethernet cable that came with your D-Link router and plug that into the WAN port in the back of the unit. The other end of the cable will go directly to the modem's Ethernet port.
Power up both the cable or DSL modem and the router by plugging them back in. The modem may have a power button you need to press. Both units should have green lights. You should see the activity light on the modem flashing, and the WAN port on the router blinking, as well. This indicated activity and communication between the two. The modem is sending IP information to the router.
Depending on your computer and router, you may automatically be able to connect wirelessly to yuor new router to begin configuration. However, it may be necessary to patch into the router with a nearby computer via an Ethernet cable, which will plug into the LAN port. Whichever method you use, you'll need to reboot the computer.
To configure the D-Link router, you will next need to open a web browser and type http://192.168.0.1
You should see the administration screen of the D-link router. Type in admin and leave the password filed blank.
A setup wizard should appear, prompting you to first change the router's password. Pick something you can remember.
You will next have to setup a time zone, you will then be given option as to how the router will handle IP address on the network. Most users will opt for the Dynamic option, which means the router will act as a DHCP server and supply all computers on the network with an IP address. If you select DHCP, you will need to Clone the IP address of the machine your ISP has already had contact with. For instance, if your ISP has been giving IP address to a certain computer before you put the router between them, you will need to clone the MAC address of that machine.
If you opted for Static IP Addresses, you will be brought to a screen that you will need to contact the ISP to get IP numbers from.
You will next need to setup the wireless connection. You will change the default SSID to match the workgroup ID of your LAN computers. The SSID and the Workgroup IDs must match. You will also be able to configure encryption at this point. If you have the ability to use the newer WPA encryption, you will want to use this. But we don't recommend setting up encryption until you confirm that all PCs are able to connect properly.
Lastly, you will be asked to reboot the router.
