HP R100-Series Wireless VPN Routers Quickstart 3 Important information to read before installing
Powering the HP R110/R120
The HP R110/R120 is powered by an HP AC/DC Power Adapter.
Only use the AC/DC power adapter that is supplied with the HP
R110/R120. Do not use any other adapter.
Important information to read before installing
This device is intended for indoor installation only. Before
installing or using the HP R110/120, ensure that you read and understand all
safety information and regulatory requirements, particularly those relevant
to your region. Failure to follow this guidance could result in a non-
Cabling: You must use supported Cat 5e (or better) cables, and where
applicable, surge protection, for your given region.
Country of use: During setup, you are prompted to select the country of use.
After the country has been set, the HP R110/R120 automatically limits the
available wireless channels, ensuring compliant operation in the selected
country. Entering the incorrect country can result in illegal operation and can
cause harmful interference to other systems.
Safety: Consider the following safety information during installation.
• If your network covers an area served by more than one power distribution
system, make sure all safety grounds are securely interconnected.
• Network cables can occasionally be subject to hazardous transient voltages
(caused by lightning or disturbances in the electrical power grid).
• Handle exposed metal components of the network with caution.
• The HP R110/R120 is powered on when connected to an AC power source
using its AC/DC power adapter and the power button is pushed in.
The HP R110/R120 can be mounted on a desktop or a wall.
When mounting the HP R110/R120 on a wall, ensure that the surface to which
you attach the HP R110/R120 and the fasteners you use can support at least
0.58 kg (1.3 lb). Allow extra weight for cables. When mounting on a wall, HP
highly recommends that you use the included mounting screws and wall
There are two slots on the bottom of the HP R110/R120 that can be used for
Mounting on a wall
1. On the wall where the HP R110/R120 will be installed, mark two holes
for the screws (wall anchors) 146 mm (5.75 inch) apart.
The wall anchors are not needed when mounting on wooden walls.
2. Drill two holes for the wall anchors, typically 4.7 mm (3/16 inch) in
diameter, and then insert the anchors and tap them flush with the wall
3. Insert the mounting screws into the wall anchors, leaving their heads
3 mm (0.12 inch) clear of the wall surface.
4. With the LEDs facing down, position the HP R110/R120 mounting slots
over the screw heads, and then slide the HP R110/R120 down onto the
screws. Do not let go of the HP R110/R120 until you confirm that it is
securely in place.
Off The 5 GHz radio is disabled.
Blue The 5 GHz radio is enabled. Flashing indicates
wireless network activity.

This procedure describes how to perform initial configuration for a factory-
default HP R110/R120. For illustration purposes, a simple scenario is used.
In this scenario, the HP R110/R120 links wired and wireless computers to the
Internet through a cable modem provided by an Internet Service Provider (ISP).
For instructions on how to configure other scenarios, see the HP R100-Series
Wireless VPN Routers Configuration/Administration Guide.
The HP R110/R120 is managed through its web-based management interface
using Microsoft Internet Explorer 8 or later, Google Chrome v29 or later, or
Mozilla Firefox v24 or later.
You must perform the initial configuration from a computer that is directly
connected to one of the HP R110/R120 LAN ports. If you configure the HP
R110/R120 from a wireless computer, you might lose contact with the HP
R110/R120 when you change the wireless configuration.
Do not power on the HP R110/R120 until directed.
A. Configure your computer
1. Verify that the Ethernet network interface of your computer is set to
obtain an IP address automatically from DHCP.
2. Disable any wireless connection on your computer.

1. Connect your cable modem to the WAN port on the HP R110/R120 using
a standard Ethernet cable.
2. Connect the LAN port on your computer to one of the LAN ports on the
HP R110/R120 using a standard Ethernet cable.
3. Connect other equipment to the LAN ports using standard Ethernet
4. Connect the AC/DC power adapter to the power socket on the HP R110/
R120, and then plug the AC/DC power adapter into a standard electrical
5. Power on the HP R110/R120 by pressing the power button.
Initially, the HP R110/R120 LAN port LEDs turn on and off. Wait
approximately one minute until the Alert LED turns off before proceeding
to the next step.
C. Connect to the management interface and log in
A factory-default HP R110/R120 is assumed.
1. In a web browser, enter the address: https://192.168.1.1.
2. On the Login page, specify admin for both Username and Password,
and then select Login.
HP recommends that you change the default password on the System >
Admin page and select Save. Passwords must be at least six characters

Federal Communication Commission Interference Statement
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital
device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide
reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment
generates, uses and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in
accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications.
However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation.
If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which
can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to
correct the interference by one of the following measures:
● Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
● Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
● Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver
● Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
This device and it's antennas(s) must not be co-located or operating in conjunction with any
other antenna or transmitter except in accordance with FCC multi-transmitter product procedures.
