This process can take several moments.

1.Open your web browser and type in the IP address of the router (192.168.0.1 by default).

2.Enter the username (admin) and password (blank by default), and then click Ok or Log In.

3.To check the status of this sequence, you can simply log in to the routers interface and click the STATUS TAB.

If this sequence never fully completes or doesn’t complete properly, try power-cycling both the modem and the router at the same time. Please remember to reconnect the power to the modem first and then the router. Please allow a few moments for the devices to initialize and “sync” up.
