For example, if your Router's WAN address is 18.104.22.168 and you use port number 8080, enter http://22.214.171.124:8080 in your browser. You will be asked for the Router's password.

Type a specific Public IP address for the Remote Management IP Address means that you can only connect to this device remotely from a computer which is using this specific IP address.2. Type 0.0.0.0 Remote Management IP Address means that you cannot connect to this device remotely.3. Type 255.255.255.255 Remote Management IP Address means that you can connect to the router remotely from anywhere via Internet, this is not recommended and please use it with caution.
4. We suggest changing the default log in Username and Password if the Remote Management feature is enabled, especially if you typed 255.255.255.255 as the Remote Management IP address. Please click How do I change the Administrative username and Password to view how to change them.
