How to Access the Dynex Wireless Router Interface
By C. Taylor
Your Dynex wireless router offers a setup assistant to guide you through the basic settings, but for greater control and to use advanced settings, you'll need to access the Web-based administrator interface. This utility resides in the router's hardware, so you'll need a connection with the router. Although a wireless connection allows access to the router, it is highly recommended you use a wired connection to prevent connectivity issues, especially if you plan to modify wireless settings.
Connect an Ethernet cable from your computer's Ethernet port to any of the four numbered ports on the back of the Dynex router. Wait a few seconds for Windows 8 to recognize the connection.
Open your Internet browser and enter "192.168.2.1" without quotes in the address bar.
Click "Login," enter the router's password, and then click "Submit." If you haven't changed the password, leave it blank -- the Dynex router does not require a password by default. Once logged in, you have access to all advanced features of the router.
- To log out of the router, click "Logout" or wait 10 minutes for the router to automatically disconnect you.
