Description: The following passage is concerned to concentrate on the heatedly discussed topic which is related to the key point of netgear login. The article mentions Netgear Router Configuration. We’re going to go to basic configuration and learn something useful about it that can help with the things we do either at home or at work.
Today, we’re going to go to basic configuration that you can compute and you’ve either at home or at work, so the first thing you need to know is the routers IP address which is usually called the default gateway.
You also need to know the routers login information which is the password in the username in a lot of rhetoric by default, it is admin for username and password for password, I know in other cases, they change it.
So if you don’t know, the best thing you can do is to go to Google and then try to find out what their specific is if unita cific logs for that elusive ladder, so since I already know my IP address and the login information, let’s go to the internet block internet browser.
Let’s type here, the default gateway which in my case is one ninety two dot one sixty eight dot one dot one for credentials, so as you can see here, my username is admin and the password.
As I told you before password some time by default is password and then in some other cases is blank or username is blank and the password is password, so if you don’t know which is Google, it’s not a good idea to leave it default, because a lot of people know what a default password is.
Then there have access to your internet, you can change all the configuration of your router, you will be able to access it, so let’s click login, when we click login here, it will bring us to the basic tab and the home menu.
Then here we will see the configuration we have, as you can see, the internet started is good, it’s on and the SSID of the network is whitcross Willmar, it tells me how many devices are connected to my router.
There are two and it’s telling me that the guest network is enabled, that’s telling me that I have two networks here, if we go to the available network tap, here you can see there are two networks here, which is the one I’m connected to and I have women visitors.
So if you’re concerned about security, you don’t want to give people the password you’re using, you can create an easy password to remember for this network, it’s a good way to check out people connecting to your network, they want you to connect to that.
So let’s see what we can see here, if you go to attach devices, he will give you all the devices that are connected to your router, the IP address that they’re using and then they might address.
As you can see here, this is the IP address that I’m using, this is my IP address of cruz which is my pc and there is another device called here the name the MAC address and the IP in some routers, you enable yourself to configure mark filtering.
What this means is that you create a table in whatever MAC address you put on that table, the MAC address will be able to connect your network, a lot of company use it, because it’s the most secure thing that they can do.
So this is good feature, what about security? I mean my router doesn’t happen that auction here, I have not seen it, but if your router has it, practice it and see what it can do, so all you need to do is to add the MAC address here to this table and then whatever MAC address is here that can respond to that to a device that advice will be able to connect to your router.
So it’s got a guest network and the guest network you can see is the biggest networks which enable the SSID broadcast, what this means is that if you enable this, people will be able to see it here, you can see here showing something, because it is warmer, if you disable this, you won’t be able to see anything.
So if you’re worried about security, it’s good, you can disable the SSID broadcast, so you go to the Internet, as you can see, my router is configured to get a dynamic IP from the Internet service provider.
It’s an IP, you can see here, this is my public IP, you go to the internet top, you see here, they get dynamically from P which is Comcast, in this case, the domain name service is DNS, you get something, it’s a sign automatically by Comcast.
Let’s go to the advanced stuff and see what we can see over there, you know the Advanced tab, if it is the first time you connect the router to two more of them, you can go to this to the setup menu, it is all you have here, internet sets up everything you want here.
If we go to the wireless setup, you can see here you can enable the SSID broadcast, the name of the network, you can specify the channel, if you have problem with the channel you are using, you can change it here.
In my case, it is automatic, you have the range from 1 to 11, someone to 11 here to shoot, so I’m going to leave it automatic, you have the mode, my router is running up to 150 megabits per second and you change that to 300.
I tried it and I didn’t work, because you say even though you’re using, you’re trying to use 300 megabit per second, it’s not going to work, you can also see here, I’m using the most secure encryption here wpa2, so this is good.
Now let’s go to the LAN setup, as you can see here, I have the tcp/ip set up, I have a default gateway here, this is a Class C IP and then use the routers as a DHCP server and you can see here, this is telling me that the router is assigning IP to whatever computer connects to this Robert.
You can see here, I have our wrench which means that I won’t be able to use any IP under 20, so if you have a wrench here, that means I would be able to connect a computer, you may get 192, that web sees sixty eight dot, one dot, twenty one twenty five twenty, any IP between 20 and 254.
I will be assigned to a computer that connects to my network, because you have the wrench here, let’s go to a security tile Security tab, you have the patented virtual oxide block services of potential email.
Let’s go to the block size, you can do nice things, you can put here any website that you don’t want, you’re working on office and you don’t want people to be using Facebook, you can block that URL here in this box and whatever is in this box, it will be blocked by the router firewall.
If we try to use face, if you try to use Facebook here, it would tell us that the Facebook is blocked, but it is their router firewall, so let’s try it, if you can see we already have Facebook here, let’s try to open Facebook one tooth.
So it is www.facebook.com, you can see here is telling me that this site is blocked by the need Netgear firewall, you can pull here as many web sites you want, if you want anybody to use faith, we’ve put it in this box.
In this specific watering, we may change, there is a schedule tab here, you can specify the day that you want to block, it is a nice picture here and then you can apply the time, I need to change it to Eastern.
So let’s go to administration, in a ministration, you can check good information here, you can see the logs, this will give you a lot of information about devices that have been connected to your network you get, the dates will give you the day that it was connected here.
Then we also give what website you have used and their tax devices, do you have whatever device is connected to the blogger, there are only two, you can see how the market drives the device name and the IP address that the device is using, you’re on the set password, you can change the current password if you want to change it.
I might want to change it now, I’ll do it later, feel more updated, if you know that, I’m not great updated for you, you can do it here, let’s go to the advanced setup the events that you have a lot of stuff in and you have the wireless settings, you have the wireless access point.
let’s go to wireless setting and see what settings we have in this library and you can see here to have all this configuration here, turn our wireless signal by schedule, you can do that here, you want to turn on your wireless from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
If they do it here, you know the period of time that you want to have it off, I’m not going to turn it off, because I use it all the time and the wireless ap, this stands for wireless access point, what this means is that you have an office.
Then there is another office across the hall, you get brighter, give you a good graphic here which is telling you another PC, the DSL, there’s a cable and maybe hit the router here, they say that system water, you want to add another router, so you can have an access point.
You have an office and there is more author, you’re not signal, you want to put a router in that off to do fractions which are connected to the existing router, then put that router in the office, so they can have a good signal.
Then there is something that is very important to know about it, when you’re connecting a router to another router, make sure you use crossover cable of it, another good thing here is that you go to the port forwarding and port triggering, then the court forwarding, you can forward any port, you’re trying to connect to the computer from the outside world, you send packages to that router and whatever port is open in that router, what it will know, what computer you are trying to connect to.
In my case, I have this service open here, three three eight nine stands for it, this is the quality used to connect to a computer remotely, so when I try to communicate with the router and I’m telling you I want to follow connect to this port, click on the router, it already knows to forward me to this computer here which is 102, that is 168, that one is 104, which is the complete and amusing.
But you should remember when you try to do this, you always have to know that public IP address and the port name, you know the public, my colleague IP. I’m not going to show it, but he’s going to show you what it is in this specific water and this is the port that we use, that’s a good way.
If you are a starbucks and you forgot to bring a USB and you have a funny computer that you need to print or email, you can connect from star book to your computer, here we have remote management and the mode management, you can open a port which is 8080, this will enable you to connect to your router remotely.
If you want to change some computation from another office or you have problems in their browser, you’re trying to know what the problem is, you don’t necessarily have to go to the office and touch the router physically, you can access it remotely and see if everything is as configured.
So the way you access the router is that you should go to the internet browser and you type its address, HTTP colon forward slash, they’re routed public IP and the port you know by default, the router gives me 80 80 which is going to be HTTP.
If you are concerned about security, you can use 443, it will give you no more, this is a most secure protocol, it’s going to use secure shell, so that’s something, if they used to be your concern about security, so this is the way you’re going to access the run remotely, so you’re going to find out what the IP is.
But the public IP is that you’re going to put it in the internet browser, click enter and they provide prevention, you’ll be able to do that remotely so that they might want to have to explain here, I hope you learn something, thank you.
