Goto control panel and select View network status and tasks from the main computer running on your network(or the one you used to setup your wireless).

How do i set up model number f507632-4


  1. Choose a convenient location to begin installing your router, such as an open floor space or table. This does not need to be the permanent location of the router. For wireless routers, it may be necessary to re-position the unit after installing it as the signals may not reach all areas needed.
  2. Unplug the power to your Internet modem.
  3. Power down your computer(s).
  4. Plug the power in to your router.
  5. Connect your Internet modem to the router. The cable plugs into the router jack named "WAN" or "Internet". Turn on your Modem.
  6. Connect one computer to the router. Even if the router is a wireless model, connect this first computer to the router via a network cable.
    router_back_lan.jpg

  7. Turn on the computer.
  8. From the computer connected to the router, open your web browser. Enter the router's address, http://192.168.2.1, and press Enter on your keyboard.
  9. Click Login in the upper right-hand corner of the page. The router does not ship with a password, so just click Submit.
    login.jpg
  10. To configure the router to connect to the Internet, you must enter information provided by your Internet Service Provider (ISP) into the "Connection Type" section in the left-hand column under the "Internet WAN" heading of the router's configuration page. If using DSL Internet, you may need to enter the PPPoE username and password. Likewise, if you have been issued a static IP address by your provider, the static IP fields (including network mask and gateway) must also must be set in the router.

  11. If this is a wireless router, change the network name (referred to as SSID). While the router comes to you with a network name set at the factory, you may want to use something more familiar for your network. Read Changing the router's wireless channel and SSID for a description of this process.
  12. Plug the power back into your Internet modem.
  13. Verify that this computer can connect to the Internet properly. Open a new web browser and visit a few Internet sites such as Google.com or Yahoo.com.
  14. Finally, configure additional network security features as desired to guard your systems against Internet attackers.
