The final step of setting your Linksys router would be to log into it. To do so, follow the instructions below.
First, the Linksys router login username should be left blank, and then enter the password “admin”. This Linksys router login password would be a default one. You will then enter its page, where you will be able to configure the options of the router to suit your usage. However, the router works fine without needing to do any configuration as it is already functional with its default settings, and you are good to go. Yet, if this router is a wireless one, you might want to further set an SSID so that the router will be identified as yours, and then you will be able to use WEP so that you can control who uses your wireless router.
To set up the DSL ISP, key the URL 192.168.1.1 onto your web browser’s URL address and you will enter its setup page. At “Local IP Address”, which is located under the Setup a Basic Setup, change it to 192.168.2.1. Then, click “Save Settings”. You will then be able to change your IP address to make it your unique own.
To change the IP address, enter MS-DOS or Command Prompt. This can be done by clicking the “Start” button on the task bar, and then from its options, click “All programs”, then “Accessories”, and then “Run command”, or you can search for “cmd” and click it. From there, everything else will be done using the keyboard, starting with typing “ipconfig/release”, and press Enter. You will see that your IP address is made out of 0’s. Then, type “ipconfig/renew”, and press Enter. You will then receive your new IP address that consists of a series of different numbers.
Go back to the router’s setup page again by keying in 192.168.2.1 on your web browser. When you see at “Status” that the IP address consists of a series of numbers, congratulations, you have changed your IP address.
