Router's default IP is usually written on its case, check user manual as well.

If you did not change anything in your network settings in your pc/laptop you should have dhcp turn on so press CTRL+SHIFT+ESC and task manager window should appear. Then File->Run.. and type 'cmd' and press ENTER. Black "dos" window should appear. Then type 'ipconfig /all' and press ENTER again and among lots of data you see you should find IP of your gateway.

How to use cwa-854 other than bridge mode?I would

Two aspects have to be considered to establish a network with brideable functions

1. The computer infrustrure have to be built, for example the computers have to be connected to each other by physcal cables to achieve the first steps the the second steps requiring wireless functionality.

2.The wireless devices like modems transfer signals between the two device to communicate otherwise would have communicated by wire connectivty of cables. The wireless device creates a bridge between the two devices also called an access point located on the computer networking area ( open my computer, click system settings and select networking functionality for any alteration purposes)

3.Once each device in the connection is ready functioning, the access point becomes visible message that could be manipulted by the computer administrator.

4. Clicking on the system networking settings will allow customisable features explanable

a. The network area would have the option of creating passwords to every device for reasons of that each device on the network is a separate entity only possible to achieve connectivey by another device providing wireless capability.

b. manipulate the wireless features that would only be displayed after each gadget on the infrastructure has been phically connected with wires amongs one another and to power supply in which instance to be powered on.

c. the modem once powered on should recognise an available computer physical establishment because wireless chips are embeded in every entity of the setup.

d. The computer display of message about wireless signal recognistion is then manipulated to suit the administrators specifications explanable.

1. A user name and password are established for reasons of contolling access to the connection of several devices

2. The device could function without passwords and username only becomes available to every demander making possible connectivty so several untilities and infructure.

Important notes

1. Your computer set up of networks are a network that when capable of communicating elswhere with additional networks insfrustures together is an internet.
2. Rememer to setup your newkwork properly or esle access could not be made into another network and vise versa.

3. If you set up any passwords and user names in the process of establishing a network,, other persons requiring connectivety woudld requrre what is called Codes in computer temnology to acess the network. whenever the passwors are lost would compromise your acess to the link of wireless signals as well.

You need to login to the router and go to the save/reload settings section.

You can reset this Wireless Access Point back to its default settings by clicking on Reset button, and then press OK button to confirm your decision. Note: you can also hold down the reset button on this Wireless Access Point’s panel for more than 10 seconds to reset its default settings back to factory default.

Configuaring wireless ap

if that is the case there is a possible issue in the firmware of the device (access point) it is either you flash the firmware yourself or better if you report this to CNET because there is a possibility that you are not the only one that is having this kind of problem.

CWA-854 as repeater

I couldn't manage to get the CWA-854 to work in repeater mode with WEP encryption enabled, but it is possible to use MAC Access Control even in repeater mode. Just put the CWA-854 in Access Point (AP) mode, add the MAC addresses you wish to allow in the Access Control tab and selecting Allow Listed from the pull-down menu, and then go back to the repeater configuration you posted. In this way, you may not have encryption, but you can still block others from connecting to your wireless network.

Disconnetion problem

Try to update the router and the access point. Download the latest firmware and then go back into them and then set them up again. It should be pretty simple, just time consuming.

Let me know if this works or not and we can go from there. Good Luck.
