Asus Rt-N16 Router Setup

Setting up a wired connection

The ASUS Wireless Router is supplied with an Ethernet cable in the package. The wireless router has integrated auto-crossover function, so use either straight- through or crossover cable for wired connection.

To set up the wired connection:
  1. Turn on your router and the modem.
  2. Using an Ethernet cable, connect the router’s WAN port to the modem.
  3. Using another Ethernet cable, connect the router’s LAN port to your PC’s LAN port.

Setting up a wireless connection

To set up a wireless connection:

  1. Turn on your router and the modem.
  2. Using an Ethernet cable, connect the modem to the router’s WAN port.
  3. Connect an IEEE 802.11b/g/n compatible WLAN adapter. Refer to your wireless adapter user manual for wireless connection procedures. By default, the SSID of ASUS Wireless Router is “ASUS” (in upper case), encryption is disabled and open system authentication is used.

Configuring the wireless router

The ASUS Wireless Router includes a web graphics user interface (web GUI) that allows you to configure the wireless router using your web browser on your computer.

Using the web GUI

If your PC connects to the router using a cable, launch your web browser and the

login page of the router’s web GUI automatically launches.

If your PC connects to the router wirelessly, you have to select the network first.

To select the network:

  1. Click Start > Control Panel > Network Connections > Wireless Network Connection.
  2. Select a network from the Choose a wireless network window. Wait for it to connect.
  3. After establishing a wireless connection, launch a web browser.

Accessing the wireless router

Setting an IP address for wired or wireless client

To access the ASUS Wireless Router, you must have the correct TCP/IP settings on your wired or wireless clients. Ensure that the clients’ IP addresses are within the same subnet as the ASUS Wireless Router.

By default, the ASUS Wireless Router integrates the DHCP server function, which automatically assigns IP addresses to the clients in your network.

But in some instances, you may want to manually assign static IP addresses on some of the clients or computers in your network rather than automatically getting IP addresses from your wireless router.

Follow the instructions below that correspond to the operating system installed on your client or computer.

Configuring via the web GUI

The router’s web graphics user interface (web GUI) allows you to configure these features: Network Map, UPnP Media Server, AiDisk, and EZQoS Bandwidth Management.

To configure via the web GUI:
  1. After setting up a wired or wireless connection, launch a web browser. The login page automatically launches.
  2. On the login page, key in the default user name (admin) and password (admin).

3. From the main page, click the navigation menu or links to configure the various features of the ASUS Wireless Router.

Using the Network Map

Network Map allows you to view the status and configure the connection settings of the Internet, system, and clients in your network. It enables you to quickly set up your Wide Area Network (WAN) using the Quick Internet Setup (QIS) feature, or to quickly set up your Local Area Network (LAN) using the WPS Wizard.

To view the status or configure the settings, click any of these icons displayed on the main page:

Setting up WAN using the Quick Internet Setup (QIS)

The Quick Internet Setup (QIS) function automatically detects the Internet connection type. It guides you in setting up your WAN when encountering special Internet connection types.

To set up your WAN using QIS:

  1. Under Internet status, click GO in the QIS field.

2. Select your connection type from these types of ISP services: Dynamic IP, PPPoE, PPTP, L2TP, and Static IP.

3.Click Apply all settings to save the settings.

Using the router as a UPnP Media Server

Your wireless router enables UPnP (Universal Plug and Play) devices, such as an Xbox device, to access multimedia files in your USB disk.

To use your router as a UPnP Server:

  1. Click UPnP Media Server from the navigation menu at the left side of your screen.

2. Select Enabled. Your wireless router is now ready to share the media files stored in the USB disk.
