ready to set the items listed below:
To get access, start your browser, and put 192.168.1.1 or
192.168.0.1, or other address for your unit, into the ADDRESS bar (not search
box) of your Internet Browser. Every unit has unique access login and
passwords, some are admin with no password, some are admin and admin...seek
access information from the website of the manufacturer of your unit. Look
under support, downloads, drivers or similar sounding areas.

avoid conflict with landline cordless phones. (Big issue, even the neighbors
There are more secure settings available, all the way down
to only allowing certain MAC addresses to have access. A MAC address is a digit
unique to each and every network card. Like a fingerprint. Most users do not
set mac address limits.
