Steps On How To Set Up A Router

Do you want to connect all your devices to the internet in your house? You need to first set up your Router so your devices can connect to the internet anywhere in your house. Either from the bedroom, sitting room, kitchen or in the toilet, with a router from anywhere you are with your device you can connect to the internet. When getting a router, it is advisable to get the best wireless router for a strong and speedy internet connection.

Setting up a router is a step-by-step process. I will clearly explain how you can easily set up your router by yourself by carefully following the steps below;

1

Step 1: Get a good Router that can connect up to 8 devices or more with a strong network
speed and place it in an open area to allow for easy strong signal. A MIMO type
router is recommended for a strong connection with multiple devices.

Step 2: Connect the Router to your modem with an Ethernet cable. Most Routers come
with an Ethernet cable which you will use to connect to the modem.

Step 3: Configure your wireless router gateway and connect the modem to the WAN
(Wide Area Network) internet port on the Router using CAT5 or CAT6 cable.

Step 4: Connect any devices you want to connect with the router such as your PC with the
red cable wire while the thinner grey color wire plugged into the green port on the
modem is connected to the phone jack in the wall. You need to connect at least one
device when setting up your router in order to adjust your router settings. You can
later disconnect it and connect wirelessly after you have successfully set up your
network.

Step 5: Change your router’s admin password. Many of the router manufacturers provide
smartphone apps that you can use to configure their router. If your router comes
with it then use the app. If your router does not come with the manufacturer app
then connect your computer to the router with the use of an Ethernet cable.

In order to change the admin password, type the router IP address in your web
browser and click send. Type in the router’s admin login and password and click
enter and then you can change the password to your desired password.

Step 6: Update the router’s firmware. You need to update the firmware because router
manufacturers often update their firmware in order to fix bugs, security issues and
improve performance. Most routers have an auto-update function so they
automatically update themselves. After updating then reboot your router.

Step 7: Create a password for your WiFi network. Some routers come with their assigned
password from the manufacturer while some don’t. Your password should be a very
strong password that includes letters, numbers, and special characters.

Step 8: Login to your WiFi network using the password you created. If you have correctly
successfully set up your router, you should be able to login to your WiFi network
with the password you created. You can then connect all your devices such as
laptops, smart TVs, tablets and any other internet-enabled devices to your network
using your password.
