Configuring Netgear Wireless Routers/Access Points

What do you need to know about configuring routers?
All basic router configuration are almost the same. You can access the router by a specific address. In this case, for NETGEAR router, the default address is 192.168.1.1.

You can access the router configuration page by typing 192.168.1.1 on the address bar of any browsers.
It will then ask for the User name and Password. The
Default UserName is : admin
Default Password : password

Most of the people just want to configure their wireless network and what is the wireless key.
You can check the wireless setting of the router. You will then see the wireless network name or the SSID. You can definitely change that to the wireless network key that you wish to use.
You can also change the wireless key which is your wireless security. There are several types of wireless security. We have WEP, WPA-PSK, WPA-PSK2.

Usually, WEP and WPA wireless encryption are used. For WEP, you can use 10 digits numbers from 0-9 and for WPA-PSK, you can use alpha numeric characters.

It's up to you what to use. You can easily change the wireless key by entering it on the Key1 under the Security Encryption. Just hit apply and you can now use the new wireless network name and key that you just setup..

One tip of advise, don't be afraid to change the settings of the router. Just remember the current settings if you are not that familiar before changing anything. If that doesn't work, just revert the changes. I'm sure, you'll get comfortable on configuring any router in a short time..

Happy configuring.. :)
