Q. How do I find the Local IP address of a Cisco Small Business VoIP router?

A.

Finding the Local IP Address of a Cisco Small Business router is useful when accessing the router's web-based setup page. This will identify what IP address to type in the Address bar, in case you forgot your router's IP address.

Finding the router's Local IP address is useful when:

  • Determining what IP address to type on the web-browser's Address bar when accessing the router's web-based setup page.
  • Assigning a Static IP address on a computer in order to determine what IP range and Default Gateway to assign the computer.

In order to find the Local IP address of a Cisco Small Business router, complete these steps:

  1. Connect the Computer to the Router
  2. Check if the Computer is Set to DHCP
  3. Check the Router's IP Address

Connect the Computer to the Router

Connect the computer to any of the Ethernet ports on the router then complete these remaining steps.

Check if the Computer is Set to DHCP?

In order to get an IP address automatically, check the TCP/IP properties of the Ethernet Adapter installed on the computer.
