Question about Routers
I am having problems finding the ip address for an external network drive that I am trying to hook up to my network. Any help on finding ip addresses in ms-dos?
I have never actually set one up, but I have done printer servers & lots of other devices, so I imagine this will be the same.. The Brand & model should give you a default IP. Usually you can change that after installation. So look at the device, go to the vendors website or if you have documentation, it will tell you there. Or tell me the brand & model, so I can find the IP for you. With these kinds of posts, you need to provide as much information as possible. Worst case, there is various software solutions (for networking) that can discover the device. But thats the hard way in this case. Let me know how you go..

This is the User name and

For most of the routers the default password
