The IP address is a long series of numbers that can be found underneath the router.

    • 4). Attach all wired computers securely to the back ports of the router. If the router is wireless, turn on a computer with a wireless network adapter. A list of several wireless connection sources will come. Select the title that matches your router.

If you are using a wireless router, restart both the computer and wireless router. Turn on the computer first, then turn on the router. The indicator lights should be lit. If working properly, the indicator lights will blink green.
