Connect your DSL or Cable modem to the router:
Power off your computer and your modem.
Connect the provided antenna to the back of the router.
Note: The USB port on the router is for connecting a USB printer only. Do not connect your modem to the USB port on the router. For instructions on connecting a USB printer to your router, see Install a USB Printer.
Connect the router to your computer and wired network devices:
Note: If you will be installing a Wireless MAXg PC Card, PCI Adapter or USB Adapter on a computer, it does not need to be connected to the router with an Ethernet cable.
Turn on your modem. Wait until the LEDs stabilize before powering up your router.
Note: This product is intended to be supplied by a Listed Direct Plug-in Power Unit marked Class 2 and rated 9VDC, 1200 mA.
Start your Web browser.
In the location or address line, type 192.168.2.1 and press ENTER to access the router configuration pages.
Note: The router's default IP address is 192.168.2.1.
Click Start. The Setup Wizard leads you through the basic router configuration process.
Note: If you see a “Page Not Found” error at any time while using the router configuration pages, press the Back button in your Web browser or refresh the page.
The Setup Wizard will attempt to automatically detect your Internet connection. If prompted, enter the username and password for your Intenet Login (PPoE) connection and click Next.
If the router does not automatically detect your Internet connection, verify the power cord and all the Ethernet cables are connected correctly. This includes the cables connecting the router, the modem, and all the computers in the network. Also, verify your Internet connection is in working order. Then, click Detect Connection until you reach the "Internet Connection Configured" screen.
If the router still cannot connect, you can enter your Internet service provider (ISP) information manually or see "The Setup Wizard was unable to detect my Internet connection".
Note: For your wireless security settings, it is recommended that you select the WPA2 and WPA (PSK) wireless security method using TKIP and AES encryption for the most secure wireless network.
Note: In this step of the Setup Wizard procedure, you create the user name and password you will use to log on to the router. You will need to use these whenever you log on to the router. The user name and password are case-sensitive.
After the initial configuration, the router will be directed to the Status page.
If your ISP uses a PPTP connection, you will need to perform the following additional steps to complete your Installation procedure and create an Internet connection. If you have any questions regarding any of the connection settings, contact your ISP.
In the router configuration pages, click the Internet tab and scroll down to the Point-to-Point Tunneling (PPTP) section.
Select the My ISP uses a PPTP connection checkbox.
If your ISP uses Point-to-Point Tunneling (PPTP), select My ISP uses a PPTP connection and enter the Domain or IP address of your PPTP server in the Server field, and the User name and Password from your ISP. If your ISP uses a specific authentication method, either select or deselect the appropriate checkboxes.
When you are finished, click Save. The router will restart and you should then have an Internet connection. You can go to the Status page to view your connection information.
Having a backup reduces the effort required in reapplying your configuration settings should you ever restore your router to its factory default settings. USRobotics recommends that you back up your settings now.
In the router configuration pages, click the Device tab, and scroll down to Back Up Settings.
Select Back Up.
Your system will prompt you to save or open the file. Click Save.
