192.168.0.1 is the default IP of many routers set by router factories, so while we are configuring a wireless router setting and our PC, we need to set them on the same network. For example, I set my PC’s IP as 192.168.0.254, subnet mask of 255.255.255.0, the default gateway is 192.168.0.1. Then we can go to router’s setup interface to make our network working smoothly.
Wireless router setup
Through the above settings, we can log into the router to configure the detailed settings, first double-click browser, enter the IP address 192.168.0.1 in the address bar, then we will see the router’s configuration interface. Usually it’s not required to verify the username and password by default if it’s the first time to configure. But some routers require username and authentication, such as D-Link’s products, the default user name is Admin, the default password is blank. We can read product’s manual book for default username and password if the product needs authentication.
The next step, click ‘Setup Wizard’ option, then we enter the router’s configuration wizard interface. This page will display a Configuration Wizard welcome screen, we can click Next to proceed with the configuration directly. Then there is an option of interface internet access interface in which we can make specific choices based on our own internet providers, for example, many providers offer ADSL, CABLE and MODEM. If your network is CABLE then you can choose the first option, if your network is ADSL we can choose the second one. Here we assume that you are using ADSL lines, then we select the second item, click Next to continue the configuration.
Next, we also need to choose what kind of dial-up approach. In USA, many telecom companies provide static IPs, and there are also many companies are still using PPPoE dial-up way to manage their network. so here we choose the first item, and then click Next. Click Next will require users to fill in some information, PPPoE dial-up users will have a validation process, we need the information that telecom company provides to us to input into the box. Then click Next, after you’ve filled out the necessary information, the router will let you select the IP address type, most users are using carriers automatically assigned IP address, then we finish the configuration.
So basically it’s the step by step of configuring our wireless router with 192.168.0.1 ip address, most time our broadband router configuration wizard will automatically configure the settings, experienced users can also manually configure the broadband router according to their needs, we recommend you manually configure the broadband router according to its product manual.
