Physical Setup of a LinkSys Router
Each model of LinkSys router will differ slightly, but the general design is similar across all models. Therefore, the setup is similar across all models.
We do not recommend the LinkSys Setup Wizard for two reasons:
Once your web browser is open, go to the URL http://192.168.1.1/. This will take you to a popup box which asks you to enter a username and password.
Logging in to a LinkSys Router The username is either blank or "admin" and the default password is "admin".
Once you are past the login screen, you are able to access (and change) a plethora of configuration options for your router.
Don't be worried by the enormous number and variety of options, your LinkSys router ships with default settings that enable it to work right out of the box in most environments.
From here the configuration options that you choose are largely up to your own personal preference.
If this is a wireless router, we recommend that you consider setting an SSID to identify the router as your own and configuring WEP to encrypt your wireless traffic.
