Read my articles - two HTML addresses used to log into the Netgear router. In order to go into the settings, you will also need to know the administrator username and password (login and password).

Connecting a NetGear Router to a Computer

1. We connect the power supply to the router and to the outlet

2. We insert the cable from the Internet provider into a single “WAN” connector on the rear panel. At Netgear, it is most often highlighted in blue from others.

3. We connect a separate network cable from the box to the LAN port (any yellow color). And the other end - to the computer, where the wire from the provider went before.

Internet connection

There are also several subsections Login channels. The first of these is Internet Setup on the Netgear Router. Here you need to know what type of connection you have, which is indicated in the contract with the provider. If you can’t find him there, then call support and find out.

- For Static or Dynamic IP, check “NO” in the parameter “Do I need to enter a username and password when connecting to the Internet?”

- If you have PPPoE, PPTP or L2TP, then select “YES” and select your own in the “Connection Type” drop-down list.

WiFi network setup

And go to the next menu of the Netgear router - "Wireless Settings".

Here we immediately tick off “Enable SSID broadcasting” so that your signal name is visible to all devices. Otherwise, Network Admin will be invisible and it may be difficult to connect to wifi ip address.

1.) Next, we come up with a name and write it in the "Name" field

2.) We leave the region and channel by default, but as the mode we select 300 Mbps for the highest speed that this router security.

We set “WPA2 / PSK” in the security settings - this is the most secure data encryption protocol to date.

As a "Password Phrase" we indicate a set of Latin letters and numbers, at least 8 characters.
