Steps to set up a Netgear router

It is important to configure and set up your Netgear router since it allows you to use the router along with your current Internet Service Provider, or ISP as it is more commonly known. Once you configure your router, it helps to fix most problems related to network connectivity. There are two ways you can set up your Netgear router, i.e. using NETGEAR genie or using ‘Smart Wizard.’ The steps given below explain how you can set up your Netgear router using ‘Smart Wizard.’ If you are not sure about which method to use, you can call the Netgear customer support number and ask for additional assistance.

  • Step 1: Connect your modem to the internet port on your Netgear router using an ethernet cable.
  • Step 2: Connect your computer to a port on your Netgear router labeled ‘LAN.’ You can use another ethernet cable for this connection.
  • Step 3: Turn off your computer, the modem as well as your Netgear router. Wait for a couple of minutes then turn on all three devices.
  • Step 4: Give some time for the modem and the Netgear router to power on fully then open the internet browser on your computer.
  • Step 5: Go to the address bar, enter either of the URLs mentioned below, and click ‘Enter.’ (I.e., http://192.168.0.1 OR http://192.168.1.1.) One of the options should open the Netgear router login dialog box.
  • Step 6: Use the admin credentials and log in to the Netgear router interface. For first time users, the default login credentials for Netgear routers are “admin” for the username and “password” for the password.
  • Step 7: Select the ‘Setup Wizard’ option from the sidebar and click ‘Yes’ to allow Netgear to identify your Internet connection. It may take a while for the router to detect your Internet connection so be patient.
  • Step 8: Once the Netgear is able to detect the internet connection, click ‘Next.’ Your Netgear router will automatically save the relevant internet and network settings. After the settings are saved, Netgear will be configured with your Internet Service Provider and will be ready for use.

You can check if the router is configured and if your internet connection is working by to the ‘Maintenance’ section in the Setup Wizard. Click on ‘Router Status’ and check if the IP address indicated is correct. If the IP address is not blank or if there are no zeros then you know that your internet connection is working and your Netgear router is setup correctly.

If you could not complete any of the setup steps or if the IP address indicated is invalid you can call the Netgear customer support number and speak to a certified expert to check what may have caused the problem. A team of technical experts is available 24 hours a day to help you resolve any error related to your Netgear router and internet connection.
