To Configure your Linksys router proxy settings, follow these steps:
A Linksys router can be made to act as a proxy server for your network. In other words, you can set up your Linksys router like a gateway for all the local traffic on your network.
A transparent proxy server permits traffic between the network computers. These computers will be able to do the following functions:
They will be able to see each other.
They can share the data.
They can access all the shared resources.
They can do all the functions listed above using the local IP addresses.
If you consider a transparent proxy system, the privacy factor is negligible.
First, you have to access the Administration panel of your Linksys router. You will be able to access it using the default web browser on a system connected to your local network.
In the navigation bar of the default web browser, type in 192.168.1.1
You will be taken to the login page of the Linksys router.
In the default factory settings of the router, keep the username box empty. In the password field, enter “admin” (without the quotes).
Now, you will see that the Administration window opens up. In this window, click the Setup tab. Make sure that the Obtain an IP Automatically option is chosen from the drop-down list.
In order to enter a new username and password, click the Administration tab.
Next, click the Advanced Routing tab. Then, click the Show Routing Table button.
You will see a display of all the computers that are now using your Linksys router like a transparent proxy. By making use of these IP addresses, you can conveniently connect to any of the other computers on your network.
We have now discussed the method of setting up a Linksys router proxy settings.
