Connecting your wireless router
Your wireless network is active by default. You can open/close it by pressing the "WLAN" at router’s back side and keeping it pressed for about 4 seconds (check the "WLAN" light indication).
To connect to the wireless network, through the appropriate computer interface you have to find the available wireless networks, choose the desirable network (WLAN SSID) and type the unique 10-digit password key (WLAN Security), which can be found on the sticker at the router back side.
Setting your wireless network
1. Open the browser of your choice (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, etc.) and type the address 192.168.1.254 in the address bar to connect to your router management environment.
2. The first time you log in , type "admin" in the Username and Password fields and next press Login.
Once you access the router page, replace the default username and password with those of your choice. Choose "Maintenance", fill in the New Password, Confirm Password fields and then press "SAVE" to save the change.
3. In the top menu select "Interface Setup" and then "Wireless".
4.The wireless network settings page appears. Complete the fields according to the settings you want and then press “Save”.
To activate the wireless network:
- Keep the Access Point option "Activated". If you want to deactivate your wireless network, choose "Deactivated" or else press the WLAN button located in the router’s back side.
- In the Channel field choose "Auto".
