Make sure that firstly you have to the Router pluggedin and working before commencing. The Router should be connected to a Computer via the Patch Cable provided to ensure connectivity with the Router.
You need some Hardware Requirements;
• Router Power Supply
• Network (Patch) Cable
A) Firstly You need to Connect to the Routers Web Interface (192.168.2.1)
B) Once you logged on, Click on the Menu Item ‘Use As Access Point’.
C) Click on ‘Enable’ and Enter the IP Address you want for the Access Point. By default it will be ‘192.168.2.254’ like a normal Access Point, for this test we will use 192.168.0.254 to show how to access it from a different IP. Apply the changes and now you will no longer be able to access the Router under 192.168.2.1.
D) Now you need to configure your Computer to access the Access Point, a Static IP Address is recommended since the Router will only give you a 192.168.2…. IP Address and therefore you will not have access to it.
E) Configure your IP to be in the Range of the Access Point with an IP of 192.168.0.250 and put the IP of the Access Point 192.168.0.254 as the Default Gateway. Now Click ‘OK’ and ‘OK’ again and you will be back in the Network Connections Window. Now Finally open Internet Explorer and type the IP Address of the Access Point (192.168.0.254).
