How to update:
click on that link and the directions will be on that page.

default user and password
admin / admin

Things that you need to write down. You need to go to the Status page of the router and write down the DNS numbers

This shoudl make your network a little easier, yet faster at the same time.

I am going to help you set up a static IP addresses for your network.

*** - Depends on your IP Address of your Router.
Your router's default IP is:

You need to put your DNS server numbers from your routers status page so you can view websites

Change this in your network Adapter settings under the IPv4 not the IPv6.

Computer 1 (PC):

Computer 2 (Laptop):

The other computers you just change the last digit in the IP.. the rest is the same.
Do not use .1 ; that is saved for your Route (Gateway).

When you create a static IP for your computers you must add DNS and Secondary DNS servers as well:
These come from your ISP or it could be found when you log into your router under the STATUS page
Without these settings, you will not be able to bring up any web pages.

Putting these computers into static IPs will help the Security and Windows to Identify one another alot easier.

I'll be back in 30 min. Write any more qestions you have. I'll be happy to help.

You said that you had the WAP set so you have already set the router yourself correct?

Because if the route was not touched. The router's security would have never been set and it would have been open to the public.

Now you should know the password yourself.

the username should still be admin. The password you should know.

I just gave you the default.

If you completely forgot the password... there is a tiny little hole on the back of the router that saids "reset" hold for 10 seconds and give it about 20 for a reboot... then the passwords will be admin / admin *lol*

I believe if it's still at the default that it should be: Password= password.

User: admin
