How can I set my router

by helen_wu35 / January 4, 2005 9:07 PM PST

I have bought one router (Origo 4 port 10/100M internet broadband router with USB printer server), but I have trouble to make it work. I followed the steps as the Installation Guide, however, unfortunately it still does not work. The system of the two computer one is Windows XP SP2, and the other one is Windows 2000 Professional. Is someone have any idea about this problem?

Thanks a lot

Helen

My problem
by helen_wu35 / January 5, 2005 9:13 AM PST

My problem is I do not know how to configure the router. I typed the default IP address of the router to the Internet Explorer as the Installation Guide, and applyed nearly all the sections, but it still could not open any other website. So I totally have no idea about it. Can you help me?

Thanks

Reset the Router to factory defaults, usually they come with reasonable defaults. Things like NAT enabled, and DNS enabled. If so, there is a good chance that the router will work right out of the box. Not that there are't settings you need (for security), just that it should function. Also, you should probably take this over to the Networks Forum, as Network guru's are more likely to look over there first.
