Hi JACUSTOMER-nwkaompu,

Thanks for using JustAnswer. I am happy to assist you with this issue. Below are the instructions to get started:

  • Connect a computer to the router with an ethernet cable
  • Open a web browser and type http://192.168.1.1
  • Log in using username and password. type "admin" for both
  • This will get you into the management interface of the router to configure all settings.

If this doesn't get you in, do the following:

  • In the search field on the bottom of the computer type "command"
  • Click to select command prompt
  • In the black command window, type ipconfig
  • Scroll to find the gateway address
  • Open browser and type http:// and then ip address you determined was the gateway, which should be the router address
  • This will open a log in screen
  • Enter the factory default login: username=admin and password=admin

For your convenience, here's a link to the manual:
