- Troubleshooting Tips
- (by step)
- If you don't see the "It Works" screen, check the network icon to see that it is not still cycling, the lights for appropriate indications (power on, reset done, port(s) in >>>use, etc.) and connections.
- Router addresses can vary beyond the three offered: You may have to look-up information for a device that uses an unusual address and enter it manually in the address bar.
- 'Default' router User Name(s) and Password(s) can be unusual, too. So, you may have to look them up.
If the device will not connect wirelessly, it may be because the wireless function is disabled in the device's default settings.
- Click again on "Test Network Device" on the top bar of the browser. If it works, the device is good and just needs its wireless settings updated. When you click on the appropriate IP address there should be how-to notes pertaining to wireless connectivity.
- Once you have updated the wireless settings, make sure to test the connection again after unplugging Das Unternet and re-enabling wireless on the desktop panel.
