How to setup Static Routes on Linksys Smart Router

Last Updated: Nov 09, 2015 06:26PM EST

Introduction

This article will explain how to setup static routes on your Linksys Smart Router.

Step-by-Step Guide

  1. Login to your router by opening a web browser and typing in 192.168.1.1 OR 192.168.1.1 OR 192.168.0.1.

    If you are having issues getting to your router sign in page please read this guide for more help.

  2. Once logged in, choose Connectivity from the Router Settings on the left.
  3. Select Advanced Routing and click Add Static Route.
  4. Enter the following:
    Route Name: GoogleDNS1
    Destination IP: 8.8.8.8
    Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.255 (if this doesn't work or you get an invalid message try 255.255.255.0)
    Gateway IP: This is the IP of your router. Use the number in step 1
    Interface : LAN or LAN and Wireless
    Click Save and then Apply. Reboot your router.
  5. Go to the command prompt in Windows or Terminal on Mac and type in : ping 8.8.8.8

    The ping test should tell you that 8.8.8.8 is unreachable, or it will time out. If you still get a response reboot your router and try the ping test again. If you still get a response please check your static routes and contact our support team.
  6. You will need to repeat the previous steps for the next Google DNS address: 8.8.4.4:
    Route Name: GoogleDNS2
    Destination IP: 8.8.4.4
    Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.255 (if this doesn't work or you get an invalid message try 255.255.255.0)
    Gateway IP: This is the IP of your router. Use the number in step 1
    Interface : LAN or LAN and Wireless
    Click Save and then Apply. Reboot your router.
