So, you have purchased a brand new router and having difficulty in setting it up. Dont' worry, its' not that difficult. First look for the manual that came with it. The router manual sufficiently describes with the help of detailed instructions and diagrams exact how it would need configuring. The documentation should at least give the default IP address and user name and password to access router console.

The internal, LAN-IP address is normally set to a default, private number. Linksys routers, for example, use for their internal IP address. D-Link and Netgear routers typically use Some US Robotics routers use, and some SMC routers use Once you have figured out your routers' default address.

Open your web browser, type default addresss most common is into the address bar and hit "Enter."

Use "Admin" as the username in the pop-up box and leave the password blank.

Connect to the Internet and click on "Internet Setup."

Select your connection type from the drop-down menu. Choose "DHCP" for cable modems or PoE" for most DSL modems. If you are unsure of these options, check with your ISP.

Set a service set identifier (SSID) to identify the router and change the password. The different brands come with their default SSDs. It is good security practice to change it.

If you're using a wireless router, encrypt your wireless connection using a Wireless Encryption Protocol (WEP) key to prevent eavesdropping. Under the "Wireless Security" option, enter a passphrase and click "Generate." This will generate a password which will need to be used by any client connecting to your router. That should be it.
