Netgear Router Setup: Easy Guide to get done with the process

Though setting a Netgear router up is an easy task, if you are not well-acquainted with the process you may encounter issues with the same. But once you are connected to the device, configuring the same is just a few steps away.

By setting your Netgear Router up, you can enjoy using your internet services seamlessly without any problems related to network connectivity. This article aims at letting users know the process of setting up the Router and fix common issues that might crop up during the process.

How to Setup Your Netgear Router?

  • Plug the Ethernet cable at the rear end of your router and turn it on.
  • Connect to internet over WiFi. Open your web browser and then visit http://www.routerlogin.com or http://www.routerlogin.net
  • After the login page appears, enter the default credentials like the username and the password. The default username and password in most of the cases is “admin” and “password” respectively. Also, these default credentials may vary according to the model of your Netgear Router.
  • After your device logs in, visit the Internet option from the main menu.
  • Now, go to the Setup Wizard to select New Connection and follow the Netgear Genie wizard to configure the router.

  • If you see a message saying “PPPoE DSL Internet Connection Detected”, you’ll need to ask your internet service provider for the default credentials.
  • After you have entered the same, and the router is configured, the status of your internet connection will turn GOOD.
  • Once done, open the wireless section to configure your Wi-Fi network.
  • Select an SSID of your choice for the network and also select a suitable password under the Security tab (WPA2-PSK).
  • Once selected, go on to apply the changes and close the NetgearWi-fi Router Setup Wizard window.

However, restoring the device time and again to factory default settings can erase the configuration settings and changes that you might have made during your course of use. If you are not sure how to reset the router you can refer to the guide that has been published in the next section below.

But first, let’s have a look on the default credentials, in the following information we have compiled the default credentials so it is easy for you to continue using your favorite Netgear Router.
