: Open your web browser and enter the IP address of the router into the address bar (not in google). The default IP is 192.168.0.1
, or using the link: http://dlinkrouter.local
: You should be taken to a D-Link login page. By default, the username is admin
and no password is required.
: Administering a Router over Wi-Fi:
Setting up a router for the first time is best done over a wired connection so that your connection isn't dropped if the security or wireless settings are changed the process. However, it can be done over wireless too.
When connecting to a router via Wi-Fi, keep the computer close to the router - in the same room if necessary - to avoid connection drops due to interference or weak wireless signals.
