Before you install the router, you should connect your PC to the Internet through your 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.

2. Locate an optimum location for the router. The best place is usually near the center of the
area in which your PC(s) will wirelessly connect.

4. Connect the PC(s) and each Switch/Hub on your LAN to the LAN Ports on the router,
shown in figure 1-1.
5. Connect the DSL/Cable Modem to the WAN port on the router, shown in figure 1-1.

1.3 TCP/IP configuration
The default IP address of the CMP-WNROUT10 is 192.168.1.1, and the default Subnet Mask is
255.255.255.0. These values can be seen from the LAN. They can be changed as you desire, as

default IP address)
Obtain an IP address automatically
1) Set up the TCP/IP Protocol in "Obtain an IP address automatically" mode on your
PC(s). If you need instructions as to how to do this, please refer to the detailed
manual on the enclosed CD. Power off the router and PC(s). Then turn on the router,
