How to: Access a router in LAN which is not a DHCP server

If you would like to access admin panel of a router / managed switch in your LAN, and this router is not the DHCP server, and it's connected to DHCP server through the LAN port, you could try to switch your PC / device to manual static IP address, and set the gateway to be the default IP address of the router you want to acceess. The default IP address and username and password can be obtained from product's documentation / user manual. After you have made modifications, and you want to use DHCP on your laptop again, just set PC's IP settings to automatic. Of course , you need direct connection to the router, either via WLAN or LAN cable.
