Hi everyone, I'm completely new, a first time poster, and normally I would take the time to post in the introductions section and get to know people before I start mooching off of knowledge but I'm a little short on time so please forgive my rudeness.
*** Please note that I know almost nothing about computers/networking/thingsusefulinthisforum Therefore it would extremely appreciated if any advice is given in layman's terms and step by step if possible. ***
My girlfriend just got hired as a professor at Far East University in South Korea and has moved into the dorms. They don't offer wireless connectivity so I brought her a router. The router is an iptime router model# N704M. So when I got here I found out that even with the ethernet cable the internet would only work by setting a static ip address(?) They gave me a paper with a default gateway, default dns server, and ip address that I had to enter in the adapter settings. When I hooked up my router I did the same to the adapter settings on the network and the wireless works fine on her laptop. I changed the ip adress by one number on each computer connected to the wireless network and they all seem to have a fine connection.
1. I can't seem to get any other wireless devices to connect to the network. Phones, tablets, mp3 players nothing. I actually rooted her phone a long time ago so it even has the advanced settings where you can enter the above values and no matter how much I fidget with it I can't get it to stay connected or it connects but has no internet access.
2. I read somewhere that I can connect the devices by adding a DHCP (?) that corresponds to each devices specific MAC address. This leads into my second problem which is that I can't seem to get into the router's settings. I tried typing in the default address 184.108.40.206, the new static address I inputted, and everything else I can think of and I can't get it to work.
If anyone could please lend me some wisdom I would really appreciate it.
I apologize for the wall of text and hope that someone is willing to go through it.
Thanks in advance,
