ISP login. The login that your ISP gave you logs you in to your Internet service. Your service provider gave you
this login information in a letter or some other way. If you cannot find this login information, contact your service
provider.

Use a Web Browser to Access the Router
When you connect to the network (either with WiFi or with an Ethernet cable), you can use a web browser to access
the router to view or change its settings. When you access the router, the software automactically checks to see if
your router can connect to your Internet service.
Automatic Internet Setup
You can set up your router automatically, or you can use a web browser to access the router and set up your router
manually. Before you start the setup process, get your ISP information and make sure that the computers and
devices in the network are using the settings described here.
When your Internet service starts, your Internet service provider (ISP) typically gives you all the information needed
to connect to the Internet. For DSL service, you might need the following information to set up your router:
The ISP configuration information for your DSL account
ISP login name and password
Fixed or static IP address setting (special deployment by ISP; this setting is rare)
If you cannot locate this information, ask your ISP to provide it. When your Internet connection is working, you no
longer need to launch the ISP login program on your computer to access the Internet. When you start an Internet
application, your router automatically logs you in.
