This is the default IP address which may have been changed. If you are unable to connect to the router you may need to reset it to defaults.


To establish an internet connection, the router needs to be changed to ‘Wireless Router Mode’. To do this select ‘Operation Mode’ from the left menu.


Change the Operation Mode to “Wireless Router Mode” and click the save button. This process will take a few moments to complete.

The next step is to setup the WAN configuration.

Select ‘Network’ from the menu and change the connection type to ‘PPPoE’.
