Re: Using Wireless Internet without a PC?

Well, this one is kind of bit on the high-end side as far as security the network.

What area of the settings should I look at?

I know I have Remote WAN Administration management disabled for security reasons.

Is there anything I missed under the settings in regards to enabling to configure my router over WLAN from the phone"s browser?

Thats what I needed. Manangemanet via WLAN.

But this is disabled by default. If it is disabled by default and one has no PC nor a notebook or no Ipad, then configuring the router from a Smartphone is impossible unless the routers have it enabled by default which I doubt.

My scenario is this:

Would it be really possible to use the WiFi Home Internet without a desktop PC, notebook, or an Ipad and ONLY using my Android Smartphone to connect?
But if Management through WLAN is disabled by default in most routers, then no one can accomplish this task unless they take the router to a family or friend's house and configure the router there.

Right. But management over WLAN is enabled on most routers.

As iansltx said, it's typically not disabled by default. In fact, out of dozens of different brands of routers I've used, I've never come across one that had it disabled out of the box. You just got that "one in a million" chance of not having a router you could configure without plugging in to it.

This type of router is more on a higher-end scale as far as security goes. This is more for a small business type office which needs more secure routers to protect the router itself from attacks as well the PCs connected to it....

And the businesses will typically have hardwired PC's so it wouldn't normally be a problem for a place like that. I'm sure if you had used a normal consume grade router you would have been fine configuring it over the wireless connection.
