Open a web browser and enter "10.100.1.1" in the Address bar. This is the default IP address of the WUMC710.
When the authentication window appears, leave the User Name field blank and enter the media connector's default password which is "admin". Click OK.
NOTE: If the password request screen does not appear, wait for two (2) minutes and try again.
To access the WUMC710 web-based setup page using its assigned IP address, you will need to determine it from the DHCP client table of the router.
