I just got a new D-Link 300l wifi router. I hooked it up to my modem which resides on another floor.
When it comes to setting it up, I know I need to plug an ethernet wire into it and go to http://192.168.0.1 to begin configuring it.
However, I really don't want to haul my whole setup down two flights of stairs. I am connected to it over wifi, but with "no internet access" as per Win7.
If I go to 192.168.0.1 in Chrome, I get
Oops! Google Chrome could not connect to 192.168.0.1
Do I really need to hardwire it? Can I not setup over Wi-Fi?
EDIT: Also my internet requires a password. Is that why my wifi has no internet access, or is it just because it hasn't been configured yet? And where do I enter my username and password for the router to get internet?
