How do I look up my router's IP address to access the router's settings?

Sometimes, modem routers (also called gateways) use the same default IP address as Linksys E-series routers.  When this happens, the modem router will assign a different IP address to the router.  This means you’ll have to look up your router’s IP address to get into the setup wizard and manage the settings after setup.

IMPORTANT: 
Make sure your mobile device is connected to the router's Wi-Fi.  If you are using a wired computer, make sure it is connected to one of the router's ethernet ports.
