Logging in to the NETGEAR Wireless-N Access Point

The WN802T v2 is set, by default, with the IP address of 192.168.0.233 with DHCP disabled.

Note: If logging in using the default IP address, the computer you are using to connect to the WN802T v2 should be configured with an IP address that starts with 192.168.0.x and a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0.

If DHCP is enabled, you can connect to the WN802T v2 after the DHCP server on your network assigns it a new IP address:

Reserve an IP address (based on the WN802T v2's MAC address) on the DHCP server. That way, if your router is deployed across several segments, you can configure the wireless access point with a static IP address which you can always use to log in to make future configuration changes.

To log in using the default IP address:

  1. Open a Web browser such as Mozilla Firefox or Internet Explorer.
  2. Connect to the WN802T v2 by entering the default address of http://192.168.0.233 into your browser.

  3. The login screen displays (see Figure 2-1). Enter admin for the user name and password for the password, both in lower case letters.
  4. Click Login.
  5. Your Web browser should automatically find the NETGEAR Wireless-N Access Point and display the main menu (see Figure 2-2).
