-  * **Netmask** 255.255.255.0 
-  * **DNS** SmartStream DNS server address chosen in Step 1 
-  * **Gateway** This will depend on your router. ​ If you **IP** is 192.168.0.2 then your gateway will either be 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.0.254. ​ If your **IP** is 192.168.2.4,​ then your gateway will either be 192.168.2.1 or 192.168.2.254. ​ The 'dot 1' is the most common, i.e 192.168.0.1. ​ If there is no internet access after completing this guide, then please try the other option.
