Enabling the Remote Management Access of the Linksys Dual-Band WiFi Router

Remote Management allows you to manage the Linksys Dual-Band WiFi Router from a remote location, via the internet.  Managing the Linksys Dual-Band WiFi Router from a remote location is similar to accessing it locally.  The main difference is instead of typing the router’s LAN IP address in the web browser’s Address bar, you have to type the router’s internet IP address or you can use a desired name if you have a Dynamic Domain Name System (DDNS) account. 

IMPORTANT:  Before you proceed on enabling the Remote Management Access make sure to change the router’s default password.  To learn how, click
