Setup and Installation


Routers are not usually extremely difficult to setup and make operational and this is also the case with setup and installation of the TRENDnet TEW-672GR router.


We noted no difficulties when setting up the TEW-672GR. Do note, though, that TRENDnet has opted to use the default IP range of 192.168.10.x. Normally we see IP ranges of either 192.168.0.x or 192.168.1.x being used, but this won't influence anything and you can always change the IP range in the router web interface, if you feel the need to do so.

Once you've got the router powered on, broadband modem hooked into the WAN port and a PC connected via one of the four LAN ports, go to your browser and type in and you'll get a popup window (as you can see above) asking for the username and password.


By default the username is "Admin" and the password is blank. The first thing you should do when buying any new router is setup a password, so that any nosey neighbour cannot login to your router and wreck havoc.

The router's DHCP server is enabled by default and as you can see above, our test PC was allocated a LAN IP address of on first use. The default DHCP start IP is and the DHCP end IP is, of course meaning you could have up to 100 clients connected to the router.


As you can see from the screenshot below, we had no issues connecting to the router at 1000Mbps using regular CAT6 cabling.

Once you are logged in, you are granted access to the web-based interface where all the fun begins.
