QUICK TIP:  You may also enter "http://router" in the Address bar to access the router's web-based setup page.

You will then be directed to the router's web-based setup page similar to the one below.  If you want to change or configure any settings, you will need to log in with your router's administrator password by clicking on Login at the top right corner of the page.
