Username and Password is: admin/admin If it is not in bridge mode, keep your computer DHCP enabled to receive an IP address from the Router.

Only if you need a static IP address for the secondary router:
Under Network Setup change Router Address to ‘Specify an IP address’. Enter the IP address to give the secondary router. Make sure the first three numbers (octets) are the same as for the main router and the last number is different than any other device on the network. Refer to image 4.
Enter the same subnet mask as for the main POS router. This is usually 255.255.255.0.
Enter the main POS router’s IP address under Default Gateway  
Change the Router Name to something descriptive. Click ‘Save Settings’  
9 Plug the second router into the main router Unplug the cable from your computer and connect it to one of the Ethernet ports on the main router. There should be a line going from a LAN port on the main router to a LAN port on the E1200
10 Test the connection Power cycle the secondary router and once the power light is solid, check your wireless networks and internet connection. If configured correctly you should see only one wireless network and should be able to access the internet through it. If you see multiple wireless networks one of the settings is different between the main POS router and the secondary router.
