Signing in to broadband


Instructions
    • 1 Open an Internet browser on a computer that is connected to the wireless router.
    • 2 Type your router's IP address into the address bar of the browser. Depending on what brand of router you own, there may be a different default IP address. If you don't know the default IP address for your router, you can usually find it included in the documentation that came with your router.

    • 3 Log in to your wireless router using the administrator username and password. If you did not change administrator account settings when you installed the router, this will be the default account. This information should also be included in the documentation that came with your router.
    • 4 Navigate to the "Wireless" section of your router's dashboard and look for the "Wireless Security" settings.
    • 5 Review the security settings on your router. If you are using a password, this will usually be a WEP setting.
    • 6 Type a new password into the "Passphrase" text box to generate new security keys.
    • 7 Write down "Key 1" and keep this information in a secure place. This will be the new security key that you will use to connect wireless computers and devices to your router.
    • 8 Save your new security settings on your router to complete the password change.

I just installed this router. How do I install security settings for it?


Access your router with insturctions below then find the security tab and decide what type security you want.
The only secure encryption is WPA2.

When you allow WPA-TKIP to be run alongside for compatibility, you just eliminated the only security you had.


All of the other "security" methods for a home router are useless. Disabling or altering the SSID broadcast does not protect the connection from anything, and neither does MAC filtering. Both are trivial to get around, and are more useful for administrative purposes such as load balancing between multiple access points on a network.


To open the set up page of the router of the router , one of your computer should be able to go online through the router.
It could be a wired computer or wireless computer.
If it is a wireless computer then make sure that the computer is connected to your own wireless network.
Do not change any wireless settings on the router using a wireless computer.
OK ! Now you have a computer online through the router and you want to open the set up page of the router.

First step is check the IP address of the computer.
Check the IP address and the Default gateway on the computer.

For Windows XP

START ==> RUN ==> type in cmd in the RUN box==> click OK or Hit ENTER . You will see a black window that is a command prompt . In the black window type in " ipconfig " ==> and Hit ENTER on your key board .

For Windows Vista and Windows 7

click on START ==> type in cmd in the start search box ==> enter ==> you will see the black window. Type in " ipconfig "you will see a lot of information. Try to find out the local area connection IPv4 address .

Note down the Default gateway number.

For MAC OS

Click APPLE icon in the right top corner of the computer. Go to System Preferences ==> go to Network ==> you will find the option Built in Ethernet or Airport whichever is connected. If you go to that you will find the Ip address and router Address.

The default gateway is the IP address of your router.

This IP address of the router will be used to open the set up page of the router

Now you got the IP address of the router.Open the Internet Browser ( Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari )

In the Address bar of the browser Type the IP address of the router.

Do not type http:// or www just type in the IP address only.

It will ask you for the user name and the password of the router.

This is the User name and the password of the router and NOT the wireless password. On a wireless router, there are 2 passwords. One is to access the router and the other one is for the wireless network.

For most of the routers the default password will be " admin " . for some routers the default password is " password ". For Linksys router the default password is admin and no user name.

I need IP address to change password


The default IP address for the US Robotics USR5461 Wireless MAXg Router is:

192.168.2.1

If the address has been changed then you will need to reset the router using a thin tool, such as a paper clip, to press in the reset button on the rear.

Password


If you happen the forgot the router's password the only way around is to do a hard reset(hold the reset button at the back of the router for 5 to 10 seconds - this will wipe out all your previous settings) on the device but if you just need to change the default password to something different here's how;

Open an Internet browser(Firefox, Internet Explorer, Opera, Safari) and enter the Wireless MAXg Router's IP address. The following is the default IP address of the Wireless MAXg Router: http://192.168.2.1

You will not be prompted to login the first time you connect to the Web User Interface during the initial setup. During the Setup Wizard procedure, you will be prompted to create a user name and password to log on to the router. If you create a user name and password, you will need to use these whenever you want to log on to the Wireless MAXg Router. The user name and password are case-sensitive.

Go to the Security tab and now you can enter or change the username and password of your US Robotics router, you can also enable wireless security(encryption) like WEP or WPA on the Security tab so that you can properly secure you router against unwanted freeloaders/computers getting wireless access through your router.

Hope this steps would help you settings up your router if you have further questions regarding setup just post a reply.

Regards,
