There's multiple ways to find the IP address for your units these are the easier methods.

Then there's another method with more steps to find it and that is logging into your router and locating the IP Address through your Devices MAC Address. 

1. Have both your Computer and Unit connected to the same network(router). 
2. Find the IP address of your Router to be able to log Into it. 
   -If you have never logged into your router most likely it is still set the default Ip address and as well as the default user name and password. 
  -If someone else set up the router for you or you forgotten your username and password, please reset your router back to factory default. (Depending on your router, most of them have a little button that is either red or blue that you have to press to reset it. 

Warning: Don't reset Router unless you are certain no other unit will be affected in your network. 

3. Most common IP address for routers are listed below and follow the links to see how to connect to your router. (these are links to Wikihow as they have good tutorials and images on how to connect to your router).
