Description: The article centers on giving us the information on the topic of netgear login. We will be shown the steps on how to properly set up a Netgear wireless router. We will be guided the ways to configure a net gear wireless router and connect it to the internet, we can make our configuration simply by using a web browser.
My name’s Steve Ling and I’m from PC paramedics, I’d like to show you how to configure a net gear wireless router and connect it to the internet, in order to do this, we’re going to need a PC connected to the router via an Ethernet cable, we’re going to make our configuration simply by using a web browser, some Netgear and other brands of Reuters, come with a CD for configuration.
Most people prefer not to use the CD and to simply use a web browser to configure the route of the way you want for that, we’re going to open up a web browser, such as Internet Explorer and that’s what I’m going to use today, open up Internet Explorer and in the address bar, we type in HTTP colon forward, slash forward slash and the dotted decimal address of the router which is shown in your information here.
In this particular case, the address is 192.168.0.1 and we hit return that gives us a username and password which has defaults and you are able to change them as part of the configuration.
But this particular Netgear is admin and password, it is quite simple, you can see why you would probably want to change them having entered those, you’re now brought into a configurational screen, there is a simple setup wizard which you could run through.
But I prefer today to take you through setting the Rooter up configuring it manually, so the first thing we want to do is that we want to configure the Rooter ourselves and click Next.
In this particular per box, it’s asking if our internet connection requires a logon as most do, so the answer is yes, the most common encapsulation used in the UK is PP, so we’ll leave that setting which is the default setting and here is where we’re going to put the username and password, that’s been supplied by your internet service provider.
There is my username and my password which is quite a complicated one, if your internet service providers provided you with a fixed IP address, this is the box in which you will install it, so you could use fixed IP address and enter your fixed IP.
The majority of cases, you will be assigned an IP address by your internet service provider, so you can leave the default setting as it is the main name servers with the fixed IP address.
You can automatically get your domain name servers from your ISP, we simply click apply to save those settings and we move on to the next part of the configuration which in this case is going to be our wireless settings. It defaults the net gear.
When you first buy it, you may wish to put something that’s more easily recognized by you, an important part is to get the correct region area, because it changes the power output of your router and it is in fact illegal to use USA.
In fact, in Europe, an important feature is the channel number that the router is working on here, it’s defaulted to 11, there are 13 channels you can choose and the reason why you might want to change that is to get better range better rot wireless performance around the property.
At the moment, we’ll leave it on channel 11 and then you can change the mode in which the Rooter operates 54 megabytes wireless B while it’s G Wireless G only, you can put it into water which will give you up to 108 megabytes on this particular router, that’s quite fast before words.
When you consider that, most people don’t have more than 24 megabytes of broadband bandwidth, we need to tell the router that it’s going to function as a wireless access point.
If you’d like that identification name to be broadcast, so the whole world can see it, you can leave that ticked, a very important thing is to put security on so that people can’t use your broadband when they should be.
A very common one would be to use the WPA PSK, so we’ll click on there and that box will expand to allow us to put in a pre-shared key, so there’s my pre-shared key, you need to make a note of this because of any wireless device that wishes to access this router from the time.
We click apply, it will need to know that key, so we’ve put in Fred Bloggs, one, two, three and we apply that and it saves itself within the router, so basically now we are ready to go.
