Basic setup for Cisco RV325 router

I am having problem with the basic setup of RV325 router.

Example:

STEP 1 Connect a PC to a numbered LAN port on the device. If the PC is configured to 
become a DHCP client, an IP address in the 192.168.1.x range is assigned to the 
PC. 

 

Which LAN port does it meant?

 

I tried the router connection on different LAN ports to a PC but the browser would not launch anything at  192.168.1.1. 

Can anyone help?

 

Thank you.

Hello,It sounds like you are

Hello,

It sounds like you are trying to access the web interface of your router so you can configure it.  First of all, I'll go over the ports of the router with you.

The last port of each row (on the right side) of the device is for the WAN (Wide Area Network) that's designated for where you connect to your ISP (Internet Service Provider).  Most likely, you will connect your modem to one of those ports.  Any ports to the left of those are your LAN ports (Local) where you can connect your PC.  

 

Once you connect to one of those ports, your PC should get an IP address.  If you are unable to get to the web interface of the router, you will want to confirm your IP address and default gateway (which is the IP address of the router).

 

This can be done in Windows by:

  1. Select Start > Run. Type command or CMD into the dialog box, then click OK.
  2. In the resulting command line window, type ipconfig.

C:\>ipconfig

You will see something similar to this resulting output:

Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:

Connection-specific DNS Suffix . :
Description . . . . . . . . . . . : 3Com EtherLink 10/100 PCI For Complete PC Management NIC (3C905C-TX)
Physical Address. . . . . . . . . : 00-01-03-AB-0E-6P
DHCP Enabled. . . . . . . . . . . : Yes 
Autoconfiguration Enabled . . . . : Yes 
IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.10
Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.1

 

This will give you 3 key pieces of information you will want to verify.  First, you want to see that your network adapter is set to DHCP.  It should say yes next to it.  Second, your IP address needs start with 192.168.1.x

In this example, it is 192.168.1.10, which is fine.  

Lastly, your default gateway should be preset to 192.168.1.1.  If it is not, write that number down and try to access that IP address in your browser.  

Note: If your browser is just coming up blank, you may want to try a different browser.

Hopefully you'll be able to get into your router at this point.  If not, please provide the output of your IP config statement so we can further troubleshoot your issue.

Hello, you should be able to

Hello, you should be able to access the system settings page by using any of the unoccupied lan ports.  make sure that your Ethernet cord is firmly seated into the port and that the green light is flashing to confirm connectivity.
