The Windstream router IP changing system enables customers to use the internet with ease and at the same time, change their IP addresses automatically. There is no need to manually type in a new IP address every time you would like to access the web. The web is already designed to be accessed on a unique user name and password, hence there is no need to memorize it again. If you are a Netbook user, you can use the Wi-Fi Direct feature to enable your device to connect to the internet without having to memorize an IP address.
The default password for this Wi-Fi Direct device is “windstream”, but you can change it into something else if you wish. You just need to enter the command “uci_default_profile” into the platform console. This command will enable the Wi-Fi Direct feature and will change your IP automatically. You will be able to log into your home screen from any computer by typing the specified password.
The “uci_webbrowsing_ipbargin” command in the console enables the web browser to display a web page on the specified browser number. It also enables you to enter a web address by typing it directly in the browser’s address bar. This feature is supported by both Windows and Linux operating systems. Once you enter a website address in the browser’s address bar, the browser automatically displays the address bar that has your default IP address displayed. You can modify your IP address anytime by visiting the web browser’s home page.
To use the internet successfully, you have to configure the Wi-Fi Direct with your computer properly. One thing that you should check out in internet explorer is the Wi-Fi setup panel. You should see a configuration utility for the router in the Wi-Fi setup panel. Then click on the Wireless connections options.
Configuring the wireless setting is the next step. You can simply click on the Wireless connection option in the configuration utility of your windstream router. It is strongly suggested that you select the Manual option instead of the automatic setting. The latter will reset the wireless setting to its default state. You can set the auto-reconnect option to connect to the wireless network automatically when the SSID changes.
You should also set the auto-connecting to the WEP if your WEP keys are lost or misused. To do this, click on the WEP reset button in the configuration utility of your windstream router. When the wireless settings of your computer have been successfully configured, you should click on the Wireless connections and then proceed to the Save tab. You can now type in the SSID and the desired network password to connect to the network.
You may need to provide your Windstream router admin access for some time to configure these items. The process of logging in as an administrator will be shown on the console. You can enable the reset mechanism of your modem by clicking on the Wireless connections and then on the Apply/ Reset button. This will also enable the modem to automatically reset after power cycling. If you need the admin access, you can click on the Set Up tab and then on the Proceed button. You have to enter the WEP configuration information and save it as normal.
The third step is to create the user name and a password. For this, you should click on the User Name option and create a username and a password for the account. You have to enter the WEP key into the provided text box. You can enter the default value into the ‘Network box’ and then click on Save. You will see an output of the WEP configuration. Now, you should save the profile and then proceed to enable the router login id and password.
