Which cable have you checked?

by OH Smeg Moderator In reply to cant discover router

The one that they mean here is the Network cable between the Computer and the Router.

To set these things up you need to hard wire them to the computer you are using to set them up with and then once they are setup you can remove the Network Cable and connect Wirelessly if you so chose to.

Its easier to just grab your gateway IP address, enter it in your browser and use the routers interface instead.

To grab your gateway address, the easiest way is to open a command prompt and type ipconfig

First, open your start menu and pick run, if you have no run command (windows 7) type run and hit enter.
type cmd in the run dialog
in the black window type
This will display your IP information. write down the address for the default gateway and enter it into your browser. It's usually something like this

This usually takes you to a login page. Most routers have no password and either have no account name, or use "administrator" as the account name.
