Before you start:
Make sure your internet service provided by your internet service provider (ISP) is available and get the internet information prepared. You'll usually need an internet service username and password, given to you by your ISP when you first signed up with them. If there is any problem, please contact your ISP.
Follow the steps below to set up your modem router.
1. Connect the hardware according to the diagram below, and wait about 1 to 2 minutes, then verify that the Power, ADSL and Wi-Fi LEDs are on.
Note: If you don’t need the phone service, just directly connect the modem router to the phone jack with the provided phone cable.
2. Connect your computer to the modem router (Wired or Wireless).
Wired: Connect the computer to a LAN port on your modem router with an Ethernet cable.
Wireless: Connect your computer or smart device to the modem router wirelessly. The default SSID (Network Name) is on the modem router’s label.
3. Launch a web browser and enter http://mwlogin.net or 192.168.1.1 in the address bar. Use admin (all lowercase) for both username and password, and then click Login.
