Types of logins
Separate types of logins serve different purposes. It is important that you understand

Several types of logins are associated with the router:
•ISP login. The login that your ISP gave you logs you in to your Internet service. Your
service provider gave you this login information in a letter or some other way. If you

name (SSID) and password for WiFi access. This information is on the router label.
•Router login. This logs you in to the router interface from a web browser as admin.

•The ISP configuration information for your DSL account
