    Yeow, I'm new to setting up wireless. I got my WRT4G to work but Fry's sold me a D-Link printer server with it, and D-Link support told me that I need to change the LAN IP of the router to
    and that when I change the LAN IP, I can follow the Installation

    How do I find out then changer my router LAN IP? I have tried going into the config file and none of the addresses there work when I type them into my browser address bar. Can anyone help? :sadbye:

    Hello Isis,

    If you are using Windows on your PC you can type "ipconfig" at the command prompt to see your current IP address. Linksys uses a different subnet than D-Link routers and that's why D-Link support tells you to change the settings in the router.

    Assuming your PC and the printer server are both connected to the router you can try this:
    1, Open a web browser and log on to the router (default address is The first thing you should see now is the basic set up page.
    2, Look for "Network setup" and "Router IP" section. There is a field named "Local IP Address". Change this to
    3, Save the settings
    4, Open a command window on the PC (Start->Run->cmd)
    5, Type "ipconfig /release" and press enter
    6, Type "ipconfig /renew" and press enter
    7, You should now see that you got a new IP-address assigned to your PC, or something similar.
    8, Follow the D-Link installation wizard :)

    N.B. This means you now have to use when logging on to the router instead of the standard address.

    Hope this helps!
