A good wireless home router, the Cisco E1000 sometimes cannot be managed by Internet Explorer, Chrome or other common browsers. You can connect to it using Apple’s Safari. You can download and use Safari for the connection. Managing a router can be things such as MAC address filtering, Wireless Security or other settings including the upgrading firmware. Firmware should be updated on routers for security, stability or connectivity including added features.
The common ip address for the router is 192.168.1.1. Open Safari and type in http://192.168.1.1 or https://192.168.1.1. You may receive a warning (certificate error). Click on continue (you are logging into your router and not a website – this is safe).
