1 Connect the Router

A Before you begin, make sure

 

that all of your hardware is

 

powered off, including the

 

Router, PCs, hubs, switches,

 

and cable or DSL modem.

 

B Connect one end of an Ether-

 

net network cable to one of

 

the numbered ports on the

 

front of the Router (see Figure

 

B). Connect the other end to

 

an Ethernet port on a network

 

device, e.g., a PC, print server,

 

hub, or switch.

B

Repeat this step to connect

 

more PCs or other network

 

devices to the Router.

 

C Connect your cable or DSL

 

modem’s Ethernet cable to

 

the Router’s Internet port. If

 

using multiple Internet ports,

 

connect a cable to each Inter-

 

net port you’d like to use, and

 

connect the other end to your

C

modem. See Figure C.

 

D Power on the cable or DSL

 

modem and the other network

 

device if using one.

 

 

 

E Connect the included AC power cable to the Router’s Power port on the back of the Router, as shown in Figure E, and then plug the other end of the power cable into an electrical outlet.

The System LED on the front

nected properly.

Configure the Router

Configuring the Router requires the setup instructions provided by your Internet Service Provider (ISP). If you do not have this information, contact your ISP before proceeding.

Your ISP determines how your PC is set up for Internet access. Because you are now using the Router to share Internet access among several computers, you will use the setup information to configure the Router instead of your PC.

A Open your PC’s web browser. Enter http://192.168.1.1 (the Router’s default local IP address) in the web browser’sAddress field and press the Enter key.

B Enter a User Name and Password on the screen that appears. Enter admin (the default) in the theUser Name and Password fields. Then, click the OK button.

C The Router’sWeb-basedUtility will appear with theSystem Summary screen showing. Click on the Setup tab, which is the next tab over, then continue with the instruction, below, to complete theNetwork page.

NOTE:: Make sure your PC’s Ethernet adapter is set to obtain an IP address automatically. For more information, refer to Windows Help.
