    nothing, you may have to verify R36 Firmware, some USB Adapters need other

    firmware. Scroll down to: How to Verify and Upgrade Firmware]

    address it may be in IP address conflict.

    If your R36 Router does not work with USB Adapter, verify Firmware first!

    Step 1:

    Connect Adapter to the R36's USB port with USB cable provided. IMPORTANT, you need

    to plug in USB Adapter into R36 prior powering up your R36.

    Step 2: Power up your R36 and it's recommend to use Ethernet cable to connect

    between your PC and R36's LAN port (the one next to power cord). Open your Internet

    Explorer and type in http://192.168.2.1 in the address bar then press Enter.

    Step 3:

    After connecting to the IP address, the web browser will display a loin page. Enter

    admin as the default User Name and Password. Then Status page will display after you

    have successfully login. Verify Firmware Version

    IF you cannot reach the 192.168.2.1 setup page, restart your Computer, keep Network

    cable connected. After restart Router should talk to pc and assign ip address. If still not

    able to attempt setup page, do a reset on backside of R36 (press red button in small

    hole for 10-15 sec, then release and wait until R36 reboots)
