This router provides maximum wireless performance. Just connect this router to a computer interface and stay connected from virtually anywhere
at home and in the office. The router can be used with 802.11b/g/n wireless networks to enable significantly improved reception. It supports WPA/
WPA2 and WEP for flexible user access security and data encryption methods.
Firewall Protection & QoS
Security features prevents unauthorized access to your home or office network, be it from wireless devices or from the Internet. The router provides
firewall security using Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI) and hacker attack logging for Denial of Service (DoS) attack protection. SPI inspects the
contents of all incoming packet headers before deciding what packets are allowed to pass through. Router access control is featured with packet
filtering based on port and source/destination MAC/IP addresses. For Quality of Service (QoS), the router supports multiple priority queues in
order to enable a group of home or office users to experience the benefit of having a smooth network connection of inbound and outbound data
without being concerned about traffic congestion. This QoS support allows users to enjoy a fast ADSL transmission for applications such as VoIP
and streaming multimedia over the Internet.

Section 1 - Product Overview
Features
• Faster Wireless Networking - The DSL-2740R provides a wireless connection of up to 300 Mbps* with other 802.11n wireless clients. This
capability allows users to fully participate in real-time activities online, such as video streaming, online gaming, and real-time audio.
• Compatible with 802.11b and 802.11g Devices - The DSL-2740R is still fully compatible with the IEEE 802.11b and g standards, so it can
connect with existing 802.11b and g PCI, USB, and Cardbus adapters.
• DHCP Support - Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol automatically and dynamically assigns all LAN IP settings to each host on your network.
This eliminates the need to reconfigure every host whenever changes in network topology occur.
• Network Address Translation (NAT) - For small office environments, the DSL-2740R allows multiple users on the LAN to access the Internet
concurrently through a single Internet account. This provides Internet access to everyone in the office for the price of a single user. NAT improves
network security in effect by hiding the private network behind one global and visible IP address. NAT address mapping can also be used to
link two IP domains via a LAN-to-LAN connection.
• Precise ATM Traffic Shaping - Traffic shaping is a method of controlling the flow rate of ATM data cells. This function helps to establish the
Quality of Service for ATM data transfer.
• High Performance - Very high rates of data transfer are possible with the Router including a downsteam bit rate of up to 24 Mbps using the
G.dmt standard. (For ADSL2+)
• Full Network Management - The DSL-2740R incorporates SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) support for web-based management
and text-based network management via Telnet connection.
• Easy Installation - The DSL-2740R uses a web-based graphical user interface program for convenient management access and easy setup. Any
common web browser software can be used to manage the router.

Section 2 - Installation
Installation
This section will walk you through the installation process. Placement of the router is very important. Do not place the router in an enclosed area
such as a closet, cabinet, or in the attic or garage.
Before you Begin
Please read and make sure you understand all the prerequisites for proper installation of your new router. Have all the necessary information and
equipment on hand before beginning the installation.
D-Link DSL-2740R

Section 2 - Installation
Installation Notes
In order to establish a connection to the Internet it will be necessary to provide information to the router that will be stored in its memory. For some
users, only their account information (Username and Password) is required. For others, various parameters that control and define the Internet
connection will be required. You can print out the two pages below and use the tables to list this information. This way you have a hard copy of
all the information needed to setup the router. If it is necessary to reconfigure the device, all the necessary information can be easily accessed. Be
sure to keep this information safe and private.
Low Pass Filters
Since ADSL and telephone services share the same copper wiring to carry their respective signals, a filtering mechanism may be necessary to
avoid mutual interference. A low pass filter device can be installed for each telephone that shares the line with the ADSL line. These filters are easy
to install passive devices that connect to the ADSL device and/or telephone using standard telephone cable. Ask your service provider for more
information about the use of low pass filters with your installation.
Operating Systems
The DSL-2740R uses an HTML-based web interface for setup and management. The web configuration manager may be accessed using any operating
system capable of running web browser software, including Windows 98 SE, Windows ME, Windows 2000, and Windows XP.
Web Browser
Any mainstream web browser can be used to configure the router using the web configuration management software. The program is designed to
work best with more recently released browsers such as Opera, Microsoft Internet Explorer® version 6.0, Netscape Navigator® version 6.2.3, or later
versions. The web browser must have JavaScript enabled. JavaScript is enabled by default on many browsers. Make sure JavaScript has not been
disabled by other software (such as virus protection or web user security packages) that may be running on your computer.
Ethernet Port (NIC Adapter)
Any computer that uses the router must be able to connect to it through the Ethernet port on the router. This connection is an Ethernet connection
and therefore requires that your computer be equipped with an Ethernet port as well. Most notebook computers are now sold with an Ethernet port
already installed. Likewise, most fully assembled desktop computers come with an Ethernet NIC adapter as standard equipment. If your computer
does not have an Ethernet port, you must install an Ethernet NIC adapter before you can use the router. If you must install an adapter, follow the
installation instructions that come with the Ethernet NIC adapter.

Section 2 - Installation
802.11 Wireless LAN Configuration
All the 802.11 wireless LAN settings may be configured on a single page using the web-based manager. For basic wireless communication you
need to decide what channel to use and what SSID to assign. These two settings must be the same for any wireless workstations or other wireless
access point that communicate with the DSL-2740R through the wireless interface.
Security for wireless communication can be accomplished in a number of ways. The DSL-2740R supports WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access), WPA2, and
mixed WPA/WPA2. Wireless access can also be controlled by selecting MAC addresses that are allowed to associate with the device. Please read the
section on Wireless Configuration.
Additional Software
It may be necessary to install software on your computer that enables the computer to access the Internet. Additional software must be installed
if you are using the device as a simple bridge. For a bridged connection, the information needed to make and maintain the Internet connection is
stored on another computer or gateway device, not in the router itself.
If your ADSL service is being delivered through a PPPoE or PPPoA connection, the information needed to establish and maintain the Internet
connection can be stored in the router. In this case, it is not necessary to install software on your computer. It may however be necessary to change
some settings in the device, including account information used to identify and verify the connection.
All connections to the Internet require a unique global IP address. For bridged connections, the global IP settings must reside in a TCP/IP enabled
device on the LAN side of the bridge, such as a PC, a server, a gateway device such as a router, or similar firewall hardware. The IP address can be
assigned in a number of ways. Your network service provider will give you instructions about any additional connection software or NIC configuration
that may be required.

Section 2 - Installation
Information you will need from your ADSL service
provider
Username
This is the username used to log on to your ADSL service provider’s network. It is commonly in the form user@isp.co.uk. Your ADSL service
provider uses this to identify your account.
Password
This is the password used, in conjunction with the Username above, to log on to your ADSL service provider’s network. This is used to verify the
identity of your account.
WAN Setting / Connection Type
These settings describe the method your ADSL service provider uses to transport data between the Internet and your computer. Most users
will use the default settings. You may need to specify one of the following WAN Setting and Connection Type configurations (Connection Type
settings listed in parenthesis):
• PPPoE/PPoA (PPPoE LLC, PPPoA LLC or PPPoA VC-Mux)
• Bridge Mode (1483 Bridged IP LLC or 1483 Bridged IP VC Mux)
• IPoA/MER (Static IP Address) (Bridged IP LLC, 1483 Bridged IP VC Mux, 1483 Routed IP LLC, 1483 Routed IP VC-Mux or IPoA)
• MER (Dynamic IP Address) (1483 Bridged IP LLC or 1483 Bridged IP VC-Mux)
Modulation Type
ADSL uses various standardized modulation techniques to transmit data over the allotted signal frequencies. Some users may need to change
the type of modulation used for their service. The default DSL modulation (ADSL2+ Multi-Mode) used for the router automatically detects all
types of ADSL, ADSL2, and ADSL2+ modulation. However, if you are instructed to specify the modulation type used for the router, you may
choose among the numerous options available on the Modulation Type drop-down menu on the ADSL Configuration window (Advanced >
ADSL).
Security Protocol
This is the method your ADSL service provider will use to verify your username and password when you log on to their network. Your router
supports the PAP and CHAP protocols.

Section 2 - Installation
VPI
Most users will not be required to change this setting. The Virtual Path Identifier (VPI) is used in conjunction with the Virtual Channel Identifier
(VCI) to identify the data path between your ADSL service provider’s network and your computer. If you are setting up the router for multiple
virtual connections, you will need to configure the VPI and VCI as instructed by your ADSL service provider for the additional connections. This
setting can be changed in the WAN Settings window of the web management interface.
VCI
Most users will not be required to change this setting. The Virtual Channel Identifier (VCI) used in conjunction with the VPI to identify the data
path between your ADSL service provider’s network and your computer. If you are setting up the router for multiple virtual connections, you will
need to configure the VPI and VCI as instructed by your ADSL service provider for the additional connections. This setting can be changed in the
WAN Settings window of the web management interface.

Ethernet ports on the DSL-2740R to connect to other computers or Ethernet devices.
DHCP Client status
Your DSL-2740R ADSL Router is configured, by default, to be a DHCP server. This means that it can assign an IP address, subnet mask, and
a default gateway address to computers on your LAN. The default range of IP addresses the DSL-2740R will assign are from 192.168.1.2 to
192.168.1.254. Your computer (or computers) needs to be configured to Obtain an IP address automatically (that is, they need to be configured
as DHCP clients). It is recommended that you collect and record this information here, or in some other secure place, in case you have to re-configure your ADSL
connection in the future.
Once you have the above information, you are ready to setup and configure your DSL-2740R Wireless ADSL Router.

Section 2 - Installation
Wireless Installation Notes
DSL-2740R lets you access your network using a wireless connection from virtually anywhere within the operating range of your wireless network.
Keep in mind, however, that the number, thickness, and location of walls, ceilings, or other objects that the wireless signals must pass through, may
limit the range. Typical ranges vary depending on the types of materials and background RF (radio frequency) noise in your home or business. The
key to maximizing wireless range is to follow these basic guidelines:
1.
Keep the number of walls and ceilings between the D-Link router and other network devices to a minimum - each wall or ceiling can reduce
your adapter’s range from 3-90 feet (1-30 meters.) Position your devices so that the number of walls or ceilings is minimized.
2.
Be aware of the direct line between network devices. A wall that is 1.5 feet thick (0.5 meters), at a 45-degree angle appears to be almost 3
feet (1 meter) thick. At a 2-degree angle it looks over 42 feet (14 meters) thick! Position devices so that the signal will travel straight through
a wall or ceiling (instead of at an angle) for better reception.
3.
Building materials make a difference. A solid metal door or aluminum studs may have a negative effect on range. Try to position access
points, wireless routers, and computers so that the signal passes through drywall or open doorways. Materials and objects such as glass,
steel, metal, walls with insulation, water (fish tanks), mirrors, file cabinets, brick, and concrete will degrade your wireless signal.
4.
Keep your product away (at least 3-6 feet or 1-2 meters) from electrical devices or appliances that generate RF noise.
5.
If you are using 2.4GHz cordless phones or X-10 (wireless products such as ceiling fans, lights, and home security systems), your wireless
connection may degrade dramatically or drop completely. Make sure your 2.4GHz phone base is as far away from your wireless devices as
possible. The base transmits a signal even if the phone in not in use.
D-Link DSL-2740R

Section 2 - Installation
Device Installation
The DSL-2740R Wireless ADSL Router maintains three separate interfaces: an Ethernet LAN, a wireless LAN and an ADSL Internet (WAN) connection.
Carefully consider the router’s location’s suitability for connectivity for your Ethernet and wireless devices. You must have a functioning broadband
connection via a bridge device such as a Cable or ADSL modem in order to use the router’s WAN function.
Place the router in a location where it can be connected to various devices as well as to a power source. The router should not be located where it
will be exposed to moisture, direct sunlight or excessive heat. Make sure the cables and power cord are placed safely out of the way so they do not
create a tripping hazard. As with any electrical appliance, observe common sense safety procedures.
The router can be placed on a shelf, desktop, or other stable platform. If possible, you should be able to see the LED indicators on the front if you
need to view them for troubleshooting.
Power on Router
The router must be used with the power adapter included with the device.
1.
2.
3.
Insert the AC Power Adapter cord into the power receptacle located on the rear panel of the router and plug the adapter into a suitable
nearby power source.
Push down the Power button, and you should see the Power LED indicator light up and remain lit.
If the Ethernet port is connected to a working device, check the Ethernet Link/Act LED indicators to make sure the connection is valid. The
router will attempt to establish the ADSL connection. If the ADSL line is connected and the router is properly configured this should light
up after several seconds. If this is the first time installing the device, some settings may need to be changed before the router can establish
a connection.
D-Link DSL-2740R

Section 2 - Installation
Factory Reset Button
The router may be reset to the original factory default settings by using a ballpoint or paperclip to gently push down the reset button in the
following sequence:
1.
Press and hold the reset button while the device is powered off.
2.
Turn on the power.
3.
Wait for 10~15 seconds and then release the reset button.
Remember that this will wipe out any settings stored in flash memory including user account information and LAN IP settings. The device settings
will be restored to the factory default IP address 192.168.1.1 and the subnet mask 255.255.255.0. The default management Username is “admin”
and the default Password is admin.
Network Connections
Connect ADSL Line
Use the ADSL cable included with the router to connect it to a telephone wall socket or receptacle. Plug one end of the cable into the ADSL port (RJ11 receptacle) on the rear panel of the router and insert the other end into the RJ-11 wall socket. If you are using a low pass filter device, follow the
instructions included with the device or given to you by your service provider. The ADSL connection represents the WAN interface, the connection
to the Internet. It is the physical link to the service provider’s network backbone and ultimately to the Internet.
Connect Router to Ethernet
The router may be connected to a single computer or Ethernet device through the 10BASE-TX Ethernet port on the rear panel. Any connection
to an Ethernet concentrating device such as a switch or hub must operate at a speed of 10/100 Mbps only. When connecting the router to any
Ethernet device that is capable of operating at speeds higher than 10 Mbps, be sure that the device has auto-negotiation (NWay) enabled for the
connecting port. Use standard twisted-pair cable with RJ-45 connectors. The RJ-45 port on the router is a crossed port (MDI X). Follow standard
Ethernet guidelines when deciding what type of cable to use to make this connection. When connecting the router directly to a PC or server, use
a normal straight-through cable. You should use a crossed cable when connecting the router to a normal (MDI-X) port on a switch or hub. Use a
normal straight-through cable when connecting it to an uplink (MDI-II) port on a hub or switch. The rules governing Ethernet cable lengths apply
to the LAN to router connection. Be sure that the cable connecting the LAN to the router does not exceed 100 meters.
D-Link DSL-2740R

Section 2 - Installation
Hub or Switch to Router Connection
Connect the router to an uplink port (MDI-II) on an Ethernet hub or switch
with a straight-through cable as shown in this diagram. If you wish to
reserve the uplink port on the switch or hub for another device, connect
to any of the other MDI-X ports (1x, 2x, etc.) with a crossed cable.
Computer to Router Connection
You can connect the router directly to a 10/100BASE-TX Ethernet adapter
card (NIC) installed on a PC using the Ethernet cable provided as shown
in this diagram.

Section 3 - Configuration
Configuration
This section will show you how to configure your new D-Link wireless router using the web-based configuration utility.
Web-based Configuration Utility
Connect to the router
To configure the WAN connection used by the router it is first necessary to communicate with the router through its management interface, which
is HTML-based and can be accessed using a web browser. The easiest way to make sure your computer has the correct IP settings is to configure it
to use the DHCP server in the router. The next section describes how to change the IP configuration for a computer running a Windows operating
system to be a DHCP client.
To access the configuration utility, open a web browser such as Internet
Explorer and enter the IP address of the router (192.168.1.1).
Type admin for the User Name and admin in the Password field.

Section 3 - Configuration
WIRELESS SECURITY MODE – WPA-Personal
Use WPA or WPA2 mode to achieve a balance of strong security
and best compatibility. This mode uses WPA for legacy clients while
maintaining a higher level of security with stations that are WPA2
capable. Also the strongest cipher that the client supports will be used.
For best security, use WPA2 Only mode. This mode uses AES (CCMP)
cipher and legacy stations are not allowed access with WPA security.
For maximum compatibility, use WPA Only. This mode uses TKIP
cipher. Some gaming and legacy devices work only in this mode.
According to the WiFi Alliance 11N specification, Wi-Fi Protected Setup is not
fully supported under WPA Only mode. We will disable your Wi-Fi Protected
Setup if you use WPA Only mode.

Troubleshooting
This chapter provides solutions to problems that can occur during the installation and operation of the DSL-2740R.
Read the following descriptions if you are having problems. (The examples below are illustrated in Windows® XP. If you
have a different operating system, the screenshots on your computer will look similar to the following examples.)
1.
Why can’t I access the web-based configuration utility?
When entering the IP address of the D-Link router (192.168.1.1 for example), you are not connecting to a website on the
Internet and do not need to be connected to the Internet. The device has the utility built-in to a ROM chip in the device itself.
Your computer must be on the same IP subnet to connect to the web-based utility.
• Make sure you have an updated Java-enabled web browser. We recommend the following:
•
Internet Explorer 6.0 or higher
•
Firefox 1.5 or higher
•
Verify physical connectivity by checking for solid link lights on the device. If you do not get a solid link light, try using a
different cable or connect to a different port on the device if possible. If the computer is turned off, the link light may not be on.
•
Disable any internet security software running on the computer. Software firewalls such as Zone Alarm, Black Ice, Sygate,
Norton Personal Firewall, and Windows® XP firewall may block access to the configuration pages. Check the help files
included with your firewall software for more information on disabling or configuring it.
D-Link DSL-2740R
66
Section 4 - Troubleshooting
•
Configure your Internet settings:
• Go to Start > Settings > Control Panel. Double-click on the Internet Options Icon. From the Security tab, click on the button to
restore the settings to their defaults.
• Click on the Connection tab and set the dial-up option to Never Dial a Connection. Click on the LAN Settings button. Make sure
nothing is checked. Click on the OK.
• Go to the Advanced tab and click on the button to restore these settings to their defaults. Click on the OK button three times.
• Close your web browser (if open) and open it.
•
Access the web management. Open your web browser and enter the IP address of your D-Link router in the address bar. This should open the
login page for the web management.
•
If you still cannot access the configuration, unplug the power to the router for 10 seconds and plug back in. Wait about 30 seconds and try
accessing the configuration. If you have multiple computers, try connecting using a different computer.
2.
What can I do if I forgot my password?
If you forgot your password, you must reset your router. Unfortunately this process will change all your settings back to the factory defaults.
To reset the router, locate the reset button (hole) on the rear panel of the unit. With the router powered on, use a paperclip to hold the button down
for 10 seconds. Release the button and the router will go through its reboot process.

Wireless Basics
D-Link wireless products are based on industry standards to provide easy-to-use and compatible high-speed wireless connectivity within your
home, business or public access wireless networks. Strictly adhering to the IEEE standard, the D-Link wireless family of products will allow you to
securely access the data you want, when and where you want it. You will be able to enjoy the freedom that wireless networking delivers.
A wireless local area network (WLAN) is a cellular computer network that transmits and receives data with radio signals instead of wires. Wireless
LANs are used increasingly in both home and office environments, and public areas such as airports, coffee shops and universities. Innovative ways
to utilize WLAN technology are helping people to work and communicate more efficiently. Increased mobility and the absence of cabling and other
fixed infrastructure have proven to be beneficial for many users.
Wireless users can use the same applications they use on a wired network. Wireless adapter cards used on laptop and desktop systems support the
same protocols as Ethernet adapter cards.
Under many circumstances, it may be desirable for mobile network devices to link to a conventional Ethernet LAN in order to use servers, printers
or an Internet connection supplied through the wired LAN. A Wireless Router is a device used to provide this link.
What is Wireless?
Wireless or Wi-Fi technology is another way of connecting your computer to the network without using wires. Wi-Fi uses radio frequency to connect
wirelessly, so you have the freedom to connect computers anywhere in your home or office network.
Why D-Link Wireless?
D-Link is the worldwide leader and award winning designer, developer, and manufacturer of networking products. D-Link delivers the performance
you need at a price you can afford. D-Link has all the products you need to build your network.
How does wireless work?
Wireless works similar to how cordless phone work, through radio signals to transmit data from one point A to point B. But wireless technology has
restrictions as to how you can access the network. You must be within the wireless network range area to be able to connect your computer. There
are two different types of wireless networks Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN), and Wireless Personal Area Network (WPAN).

Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN)
In a wireless local area network, a device called an Access Point (AP) connects computers to the network. The access point has a small antenna
attached to it, which allows it to transmit data back and forth over radio signals. With an indoor access point as seen in the picture, the signal can
travel up to 300 feet. With an outdoor access point the signal can reach out up to 30 miles to serve places like manufacturing plants, industrial
locations, college and high school campuses, airports, golf courses, and many other outdoor venues.
Wireless Personal Area Network (WPAN)
Bluetooth is the industry standard wireless technology used for WPAN. Bluetooth devices in WPAN operate in a range up to 30 feet away. Compared
to WLAN the speed and wireless operation range are both less than WLAN, but in return it doesn’t use nearly as much power which makes it ideal
for personal devices, such as mobile phones, PDAs, headphones, laptops, speakers, and other devices that operate on batteries.
Who uses wireless?
Wireless technology as become so popular in recent years that almost everyone is using it, whether it’s for home, office, business, D-Link has a
wireless solution for it.
Home
• Gives everyone at home broadband access
• Surf the web, check email, instant message, download multimedia files.
• Gets rid of the cables around the house
• Simple and easy to use
Small Office and Home Office
• Stay on top of everything at home as you would at the office
• Remotely access your office network from home
• Share the Internet connection and printer with multiple computers
• No need to dedicate office space
Where is wireless used?
Wireless technology is expanding everywhere not just at home or office. People like the freedom of mobility and it’s becoming so popular that
more and more public facilities now provide wireless access to attract people. The wireless connection in public places is usually called “hotspots”.

Appendix A - Wireless Basics
Using a D-Link Cardbus Adapter with your laptop, you can access the hotspot to connect to Internet from remote locations like: Airports, Hotels,
Coffee Shops, Libraries, Restaurants, and Convention Centers.
Wireless network is easy to setup, but if you’re installing it for the first time it could be quite a task not knowing where to start. That’s why we’ve put
together a few setup steps and tips to help you through the process of setting up a wireless network.
Tips
Here are a few things to keep in mind, when you install a wireless network.
Centralize your router or Access Point
Make sure you place the router/access point in a centralized location within your network for the best performance. Try to place the router/access
point as high as possible in the room, so the signal gets dispersed throughout your home. If you have a two-story home, you may need a repeater
to boost the signal to extend the range.
Eliminate Interference
Place home appliances such as cordless telephones, microwaves, and televisions as far away as possible from the router/access point. This would
significantly reduce any interference that the appliances might cause since they operate on same frequency.
Security
Don’t let you next-door neighbors or intruders connect to your wireless network. Secure your wireless network by turning on the WPA security
feature on the router. Refer to product manual for detail information on how to set it up.
Wireless Modes
There are basically two modes of networking:
• Infrastructure – All wireless clients will connect to an access point or wireless router.
• Ad-Hoc – Directly connecting to another computer, for peer-to-peer communication, using wireless network adapters on each computer,
such as two or more D-Link wireless network adapters.
An Infrastructure network contains an Access Point or wireless router. All the wireless devices, or clients, will connect to the wireless router or access
point.
An Ad-Hoc network contains only clients, such as laptops with wireless cardbus adapters. All the adapters must be in Ad-Hoc mode to communicate.

Check your IP address
After you install your new D-Link adapter, by default, the TCP/IP settings should be set to obtain an IP address from a DHCP server (i.e. wireless
router) automatically. To verify your IP address, please follow the steps below.
Click on Start > Run. In the run box type cmd and click on the OK.
At the prompt, type ipconfig and press Enter.
This will display the IP address, subnet mask, and the default
gateway of your adapter.
If the address is 0.0.0.0, check your adapter installation, security settings,
and the settings on your router. Some firewall software programs may
block a DHCP request on newly installed adapters.
If you are connecting to a wireless network at a hotspot
(e.g. hotel, coffee shop, airport), please contact an employee or
administrator to verify their wireless network settings.

Statically Assign an IP address
If you are not using a DHCP capable gateway/router, or you need to assign a static IP address, please follow the steps below:
Step 1
Windows® 7 - Click on Start > Control Panel > Network Connections.
Windows® Vista - Click on Start > Control Panel > Network Connections.
Windows® XP - Click on Start > Control Panel > Network Connections.
Windows® 2000 - From the desktop, right-click on My Network Places > Properties.
Step 2
Right-click on Local Area Connection which represents your D-Link network adapter and select Properties.
Step 3
Highlight Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and click on Properties.
Step 4
Click on Use the following IP address and enter an IP address that is on the
same subnet as your network or the LAN IP address on your router.
Example: If the router’s LAN IP address is 192.168.0.1, make your IP address 192.168.0.X
where X is a number between 2 and 99. Make sure that the number you choose is
not in use on the network. Set the Default Gateway the same as the LAN IP address
of your router (192.168.0.1).
Set the Primary DNS the same as the LAN IP address of your router
(192.168.0.1). The Secondary DNS is not needed or you may enter a
DNS server from your ISP.
Step 5
Click on OK twice to save your settings.
