One of the most common problems that users of wireless routers face is that of setting up the router and configuring it correctly according to their needs and demands. The problem is more pronounced and common in the case of customers that have a paucity of knowledge concerning technical prowess and know how. In cases of issues with a Netgear router, customers usually call up Netgear router support to solve their problems. Although Netgear router support is led by experienced technical people, it does take time and it is always better to have the knowledge of setting up routers and setting them up personally.

The Steps for Your Netgear Router Setup

There are a large variety of routers available in Netgear's current range. All these routers are made keeping in mind the ease of customers with special emphasis on quality. Even though Netgear Routers are quite easy to setup and install, the following set of instruction will simplify the whole process even more for you –

· After you have bought your router, it is advisable to place it at a place in the centre of your home so that you achieve maximum signals at each and every corner of your home. It is always a good practice to mount your router at a good height, preferably on a wall.

· Switch on the router and allow it to boot up. The power light will generally come on after a few seconds wait. After that, you need to connect your computer with your router with a cable.

· After you have connected, make sure that you restart your computer in order to get a new IP address. Always plug in the cable in the WAN port provided mostly at the back of your router. After this is done, you will need to run the CD provided to you with the router and then go ahead with the installation wizard.

· The last step needs you to follow the instructions in the wizard and click on yes or no options accordingly. After the installation is complete, it is best you reboot your computer and modem before you start accessing the internet wirelessly.

The above steps ensure that you will be able to use your router as soon as you buy it. After you have successfully completed the above steps, you will be able to connect wirelessly to the internet within the area of your home. However, do make sure that you change your authentication and password from time to time so as to not compromise on the security aspect.
