Check your IP address

DIR-605l Default Password

After you install your new D-Link adapter, by default, the TCP/IP settings should be set to obtain an IP address from a DHCP server (i.e. wireless router) automatically.

  • To verify your IP address, please follow the steps below.
  • Click on Start > Run. In the run box type cmd and click OK.
  • At the prompt, type ipconfig and press Enter.
  • This will display the IP address, subnet mask, and the default gateway of your adapter.
  • If the address is, check your adapter installation, security settings, and the settings on your router. Some firewall software programs may block a DHCP request on newly installed adapters.
  • If you are connecting to a wireless network at a hotspot (e.g. hotel, coffee shop, airport), please contact an employee or administrator to verify their wireless network settings.
