I'm not sure how your direct apartment connection was working but make sure your ethernet port is setup for DHCP on IPv4.
1. ClickSystem Preferences > Network > Configure...
3. From the TCP/IP tab, select Using DHCP in the Configure IPv4 dropdown list.
4. Cllick Apply Now when done.
Then you can try the software or the web interface:
To log into the web GUI:
1. On your web browser such as Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, or Google Chrome, manually key in the wireless router’s default IP address: 192.168.1.1
2. On the login page, key in the default user name (admin) and password (admin).
