Method 1 of 3: Connect the Router
Connect the router to the modem. The router sends the modem's internet connection to any computer connected to its network. Ensure that both the modem and the router have their power cables plugged in. Plug one end of a network cable into your modem. Plug the other end into the port on your router labeled "Internet," "WAN," or "WLAN." The labels will vary depending on the type of router you have. Ad
Install the software. Depending on the router brand and model, you may or may not receive software to install on the computer. This software is typically an interface to connect to the router and adjust the settings, though it is not required.
Connect your computer to the router. You can do this either through an Ethernet cable or over Wi-Fi. If this is your first time setting the router up, then connect your computer via Ethernet so that you can configure the wireless network.
Method 2 of 3: Accessing the Router
Open the web browser on your computer. In the address bar, type in the address of your router and hit "Enter." This will give you access to the router's settings. The address of your router will depend on the brand of router you have. Common brands and their default address include:
Input the default username and password for your router. You will be asked for this in a pop-up window after you enter the router address. You can find this in the router's product documentation. Generally, the default username is "admin" and the default password is either "admin" or "password."
Method 3 of 3: Configure Your Router's Settings
Set up the wireless network. If you have a Wi-Fi enable router, you can setup a Wireless network with that can be accessed by other Wi-Fi enabled devices. Open the Wireless section of the router's configuration screen. This is usually listed under Basic Setup, or Wireless Settings.
Secure your wireless network. Most modern routers support multiple kinds of wireless encryption. Use WPA or WPA2 to ensure that your network key will remain uncrackable. Pick a combination of letters and numbers to make the password strong. Users will need to enter this password on their devices or computers when connecting wirelessly to the network.
Assign your router a new username and password. You will use this the next time you access the router. The default name and password for your router is very unsecure, as anyone that is connected to your network can easily enter the settings and compromise the security of your network.
