Accessing the web-based setup page of the Linksys Wireless-N Ethernet bridge

This article will discuss the two methods in accessing the Linksys Wireless-N Ethernet bridge's web-based setup page to set up or modify its settings.

Using the IP address assigned by the router (DHCP Client Table)
Using the bridge’s default IP address

Using the IP address assigned by the router (DHCP Client Table)
 

You can go to your Linksys router’s DHCP Client Table to check your bridge’s IP address.  Once you have the bridge’s IP address, use it to access its web-based setup page.
 

NOTE:  If you are using a Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Router, learn how to access the DHCP Client Table through the Linksys cloud account by clicking hereFor Linksys Wi-Fi Router, click here.
 

Step 1:
Open a web browser and enter the bridge’s IP address as displayed from the DHCP Client Table of your router in the Address bar.

NOTE:  In the example below, the router assigned 192.168.1.131 as the IP address of the bridge.

You should now have accessed the web-based setup page of your bridge.
