    First, check to make sure the router is working properly.

    1. Check your PC to make sure it is set to "obtain IP address automatically".

    2. Plug in the router, and plug a network cable from your PC to one of the four LAN ports on your router.

    3. Go to a command line on your PC and type IPCONFIG and hit ENTER. You should see an IP address of something like, or somewhere in that range. If not, type IPCONFIG /RENEW and hit ENTER. Wait a minute then type IPCONFIG again, and verify that you have an IP address of or somewhere in that range.

    4. If you do not, press the little RESET button on the back of the router (with the router powered up) for more than 30 seconds. this will reset the router to factory settings. Then repeat steps 1-3.

    5. At this point, you should be able to start up your web browser and go to and see the login interface, and you can restart the CD.
