I set one of these up in the local pub a few months ago. The only way I could do it was to plug into my laptop using the ethernet cable and enter the settings page from there while being close to the router. Can't remember it being difficult once I'd done that.

I had a similar problem. The only way I could get to the settings were as onthelimit1 says which was via an ethernet cable to a laptop. It is easy to set up once you have accessed the settings but I could not do it on a desktop for some inexplicable reason'
