Ways to configure a wireless router IP address
The router used in your system has a unique Internet Protocol address. The router address includes private numbers and is set to default by the router. You may need to change the IP address of the router at some point of time. An IP address is unique for each router. As many users are using the router, there may be conflicts with the IP address of other routers. You need to configure the IP address if you are using a static connection in place of an automatic connection. You can do this using some simple steps and you need to follow some steps while doing so.

Note the IP address
As you are attempting to configure the IP address of your router, you need to note down the address. The IP address is usually quite complicated. Thus, it may be hard to remember the IP address everytime. If you have no idea what the IP address is, then you will no longer be able to access the Internet connection. You can either note down the IP address or you can copy it to an external media like CZD, USB or DVD.
Steps to configure
There are some simple steps to configure the IP address of the router. For this, you need to go to the router setup screen and then go to the 'Settings' option. If the setting are set up on a DHCP server, then it will display a base address preset. This address is usually something like 192.168.0.1. This will have been assigned to any device connected to the router. You can then enter the new IP address in the base IP address column and can get the IP address configured on the router.
There are some other points that need to be taken care of while configuring the IP address of a wireless router connected to your system. The configuration steps have to be taken, and you need to wait until these steps are complete. It is not good to terminate these steps in between. You need to note down any changes made to the router with these steps. You should also make a note of the steps in case you need to perform this configuration again.
