3. If your ISP provides a PPPoE connection, select PPPoE/Russia PPPoE option.
And you should enter the following parameters
User Name/Password – Enter the User Name and Password provided by your ISP. These fields are case-sensitive.
Secondary Connection – It’s available only for PPPoE Connection.
If your ISP provides an extra Connection type such as Dynamic/Static IP to connect to a local area network, then you
can check the radio button of Dynamic/Static IP to activate this secondary connection.
Disabled – The Secondary Connection is disabled by default, so there is PPPoE
connection only. This is recommended.
Dynamic IP – You can check this radio button to use Dynamic IP as the secondary
connection to connect to the local area network provided by ISP.
Choose menu “Network → WAN”, you can configure the IP parameters of the WAN on the screen below.
1. If your ISP provides the DHCP service, please choose Dynamic IP type, and the router will automatically get IP parameters from your ISP.
You can see the page as follows.
This page displays the WAN IP parameters assigned dynamically by your ISP, including IP address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, etc. Click the Renew button to renew the IP parameters from your ISP.
Click the Release button to release the IP parameters.
MTU Size – The normal MTU (Maximum Transmission Unit) value for most Ethernet networks is 1500 Bytes.
It is not recommended that you change the default MTU Size unless required by your ISP.
Use These DNS Servers – If your ISP gives you one or two DNS addresses, select Use
These DNS Servers and enter the primary and secondary addresses into the correct fields.
Otherwise, the DNS servers will be assigned dynamically from your ISP.
Enter admin for the User Name and Password, both in lower case letters. Then click the Login button or press the Enter key.
After your successful login, you will see the main menus on the left of the Web-based utility. On the
right, there are the corresponding explanations and instructions
The detailed explanations for each Web page’s key function are listed below.
This chapter will show you how to configure the basic functions of your AC1750 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Router using Quick Setup Wizard within minutes.
1 TCP/IP Configuration
The default IP address of the router is 192.168.0.1 and the default Subnet Mask is 255.255.255.0.
These values can be changed as you desire.
In this guide, we use all the default values for description.
Connect the local PC to the Ethernet ports of the router and then you can configure the IP address for your PC by the following method: Set up the TCP/IP Protocol in “Obtain an IP address automatically” mode on your PC.
If you need instructions as to how to do this, please refer to Appendix B: Configuring the PC.
Then the built-in DHCP server will assign IP address for the PC.
Now, you can run the Ping command in the command prompt to verify the network connection
between your PC and the router. The following example is in Windows XP OS.
Open a command prompt, and type ping 192.168.0.1, and then press Enter.
If the result displayed is similar to the Figure, it means the connection between your PC and the router has been established well.
1 System Requirements
Broadband Internet Access Service (DSL/Cable/Ethernet).
One DSL/Cable Modem that has an RJ45 connector (which is not necessary if the router is connected directly to the Ethernet).
PCs with a working Ethernet Adapter and an Ethernet cable with RJ45 connectors.
TCP/IP protocol on each PC.
Web browser, such as Microsoft Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or Apple Safari.
2 Installation Environment Requirements
Place the router in a well-ventilated place far from any heater or heating vent
Avoid direct irradiation of any strong light (such as sunlight)
Keep at least 2 inches (5 cm) of clear space around the router
Operating Temperature: 0℃~40℃ (32℉~104℉)
Operating Humidity: 10%~90%RH, Non-condensing
3 Connecting the router
Before installing the router, make sure your PC is connected to the Internet through the broadband service successfully.
If there is any problem, please contact your ISP. After that, please install the router according to the following steps. Don’t forget to pull out the power plug and keep your hands dry.
1. Power off your modem (if the modem has a backup battery, please remove it too.), and disconnect your existing router if you have one.
2. Connect the Internet port on your Router to the Modem’s LAN port with an Ethernet cable.
3. Connect your computer to one of the Ethernet ports labeled 1~4 on the Router with an Ethernet cable.
4. Power on the modem and wait for 2 minutes
5. Make sure the Wireless On/Off switch is ON.
Then plug the provided power adapter into the Power jack and the other end to a standard electrical wall socket. Press the On/Off button to power on the Router.
(Before you power on the Router, please make sure your computer is NOT connected to any other wireless network.)
If you want to use the router to share files or printer, plug the USB storage device to the USB port or connect the printer to the router with a matching cable.

To Add a Wireless MAC Address filtering entry, click the Add New button.
The “Add or Modify Wireless MAC Address Filtering entry” page will appear, shown in Figure.
To add or modify a MAC Address Filtering entry, follow these instructions:
1. Enter the appropriate MAC Address into the MAC Address field.
The format of the MAC Address is XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX (X is any hexadecimal digit).
For example: 00:0A:EB:B0:00:0B.
2. Give a simple description for the wireless station in the Description field.
For example: Wireless station A.
Choose menu “Wireless 5GHz → Wireless Security”, you can configure the security settings of
your wireless network.
There are five wireless security modes supported by the router : WPA-Personal, WPA2-Personal, WPA-Enterprise, WPA2-Enterprise, and WEP.
Disable Security – If you do not want to use wireless security, check this radio button.
But it’s strongly recommended to choose one of the following modes to enable security.
WPA/WPA2-Personal – It’s the WPA/WPA2 authentication type based on pre-shared passphrase.
The router is configured by this security type by default.
Authentication Type– you can choose the version of the WPA-PSK security on the drop-down list.
The default setting is Automatic, which can select WPA-PSK (Pre-shared key of WPA) or WPA2-PSK (Pre-shared key of WPA) automatically based on the wireless station’s capability and request.
Encryption – When WPA-PSK or WPA is set as the Authentication Type, you can select either Automatic, or TKIP or AES as Encryption.
If you check the WPA/WPA2-Personal radio button and choose TKIP encryption, you will find a notice in red as shown in Figure .
