It’s best to use a computer (with an Ethernet adapter) that is connected to a switch for
configuring the DWL-G710. The default IP address for the DWL-G710 is 192.168.0.30 with
a Subnet Mask of 255.255.255.0. You will need to assign your computer a Static IP

the DWL-G710. See the Manual on the CD-ROM if you need assistance in assigning a
Static IP address for your network adapter.
