Setup Wizards on RV016, RV042, RV042G and RV082 VPN Routers


Objective

The Setup Wizard is a built in feature that is used to help with the basic IP configuration on the router to enable it to communicate with other devices. It guides you step-by-step and can be a useful way to configure the device if the user does not have much network experience. An access rule is configured based on various criteria in order to allow or deny access to the network. The access rule is scheduled based on the time when the access rules need to be applied to the router.

The objective of this article is to guide you on how to access the setup wizards on the RV016, RV042, RV042G and RV082 VPN Routers.
