How to setup dlink router without cd?

I have a Dlink wireless router which I recently borrowed from my elder brother since he was getting a new one. So the router is hardly 4 months old and he told me its works perfectly fine. The problem is he does not have the CD which came along the router for configuration and I am not into tech, so I have no idea how to do it any other way. Can anyone here tell me in easy steps how to configure my Dlink router without CD?

How to setup Dlink router without cd?

general

Step 1: First, connect your router to a power source and switch it ON. Now using an Ethernet cable connect it to your computer. One end of the of the Ethernet cable goes inside the LAN port of your router while the other end goes into the Ethernet port on your computer. Connect the ADSL modem cable to WAN port and wait for few minutes to let the connection get established.

ip

Step 2: Open your web-browser and enter 192.168.0.1 in the URL field. This is the default Ip address for your Dlink router, if this does not work, use your IP address in the URL field. This will redirect you to the login portal of your router.

admin

Step 3: Enter “admin” in the username field and leave the password field blank. In case your ISP has provided you any router login credentials, enter those.  You can also search for the login credentials under the bottom of the router.

Step 4: Now you will be redirected to the setup page of your Dlink router. Here, go to the wireless settings and choose “Manual wireless network setup”.

Step 5: Enter the SSID name so you recognize your wireless network. Now, go to “Security Settings”. In this tab, select the “WEP-PERSONAL” encryption as your encryption type as it is considered to be the safest form of encryption from the given options.

Step 6: Below the Encryption type, you will notice a box for “Passkey”, this is meant for your wifi password. Enter a strong and unique password in this box and make sure the password is strong enough and cannot be easily guessed or achieved via trial and error method. Save these settings and you have successfully configured your router.

You do not need the setup CD to make a router work (frankly the following is my preferred method as the CD's usually install unnecessary "bonus features".) Here is how you establish Internet connections on a (aka "configure a") router"¦ and I will use a D-Link as my example but they all work basically the same.

  1. Assign your PC an IP address in the same range as the router's default address"“ for most routers assign the IP of 192.168.1.2 but since this is a D-Link router use 192.168.0.2. (Look to to the router manufacturer's website's support page/FAQ's if you don't know this.)
  2. Connect the PC directly to the router with an Ethernet cable.
  3. Open a web browser (IE, Firefox, Safari) and enter https:// and then the IP address number of the router into the address bar. (If you don't know this look to the router manufacturer's Website for "default settings"). Typically this is 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.254 "” but D-Link uses https://192.168.0.1.
  4. Enter the default Name and Password (again look to to the router manufacturer's website's support page/FAQ's if you don't know these). But typically these are "admin"+"admin" or "admin"+"password" D-Link's default is admin/admin.
  5. Return to your PC's Network Connections (from Step 1) and reset your PC to "Get address automatically"“DHCP". Reboot your PC if necessary.

D link router doesn't require any software CD.
Type 192.168.1.1 in the address bar (make sure the router is connected) then new page opens now give user id and password as 'admin' then log in.
Select set up menu -> create new connection -> Fill up the form give vpi = 0.
vci = 35 and give correct user id and password given by service provider and select the connection type as PPoE apply.
Now select tools -> system commands -> save all.
Then on same window select restart.
Now yours router is configured .
Now u can use the Internet.
