To access the config for this router, you can get into the config by doing the following:
1) bring up a web browser
2) enter the routers default IP address in the address bar of the browser: http://192.168.1.1
3) by default, the username is blank and the password is linksys
- however this may have changed during the setup process.
If you cannot access the router because someone had changed the login information, you do have the option of resetting it to its factory defaults.
If you dont have the user manual for the router, you can download the PDF from the Linksys websitge here:http://www.linksys.com/servlet/Satellite?b...d=9010815453B04
In the manual, on the navigation pane on the left side, expand the 'plus sign' for Chapter 3: Advanced Configuration
and halfway down click on Applications and Gaming > QoS
(this would be page 16).
Bear in mind you're going to need to enter the MAC address of your computer. A MAC address is a unique identifier for a ethernet card (well, ideally, anyway), and is a way to id a computer. To find out what the MAC for your PC is, click Start
and type cmd
at the prompt. Then type ipconfig /all
Look for physical address
, as this is the MAC address. Bear in mind you will have one each for wired and wireless, so use the one for the connection you prefer. Follow the steps in the manual and you should be all set.
Good luck and let us know how it goes.
