Steps On How To Set Up A Router

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.

It is now speculated that the new phablet is rolling out with a 6.3-inch display; which is even larger than the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus.

DESIGN
As per as the rumors, Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is likely to roll out with a rich-looking feature of Note 7’s; with a design of glass-and-metal-fused. Note 7 had previously got some issues regarding the curved edges; which can be hoped to resolve by the makers with Samsung Galaxy Note 8. But going by the speculations, Galaxy Note 8 would apparently be similar to that of the S8 as per as design.

OPERATING SYSTEM
Galaxy Note 8 with no further confusion will definitely sport the latest Android OS; when the operating system is talked about. Specifically the upcoming phablet will be using either Android Nougat or Android O. But there might be Android O; however, there’s no specific news about that.

CAMERA
Because two is better than one, Note will be rolling out with dual lens camera. In 2016, this feature was trendy. But with Note 7, we didn’t witness anything trending. But with Note 8 we definitely are going to witness something extraordinary with a dual lens camera. Also as the rumor goes, the next phablet is going to sport a twin camera set in front as well.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Release Date:

No More Aluminum Body for the iPhone 8?

No More Aluminum Body for the iPhone 8?

Tech entity Apple has definitely gained ample amount of appreciation not just by manufacturing and developing all the iPhones but also for their iPods, iPads, MacBooks and of course the Apple Watches. Every time people have said that that Apple products are not only satisfying but are also worth the money due to which tech fanatics do not hesitate at all while buying the device. However, the tablet range by Apple has surely helped the company to acquire recognition and the iPhones have obviously stolen the show each time. Last year was a great time for the iPhone fanatics as the seventh generation of the Smartphone was released but one surprising scenario was the missing of iPhone 7S because it was not launched along with the seventh generation iPhone.

iPhone-8

In fact, the confirmation regarding iPhone 7S has still not been made. So, people think that either the tech entity could release iPhone 7S way before the launch of the eight generation iPhone or the company might not launch it at all. So chances of Apple unveiling the iPhone 8 directly could actually be a probability. iPhone 8 release date is another question which the Apple fanatics keep asking but sadly no confirmation on its launch has been made yet. Whatsoever things might be, an eight generation iPhone is surely in the making as speculation regarding the gadget is actually at rife. Therefore, it is legit that the users or the people who are mulling on purchasing the next iPhone would be talking about its features. However, Apple actually has been using the aluminum body since 2012 and now people say that the iPhone 8 might not just feature the aluminum body at all when it releases. So this hints that the iPhone 8 is actually going to strike a completely disparate outlook.

Have a Look: Everything we want to know about iPhone 7 : Colors, Variants, Processor

Nevertheless, talking about the design of the eight generation of iPhone, the sources highlight that the next Smartphone in the iPhone series may get wrapped with glass. And the iPhone 8 might also sport a metal frame. So, this mean that the eight generation of iPhone is actually going to be a bit out of the box than all the predecessors.

However, the device getting wrapped with glass might indicate that the iPhone 8 won’t be that sturdy and may break off easily but that surely is not case for the glass technologies which are being developed today as they are being quite durable. So if at all the iPhone 8 sports a glass technology, we can expect it to be quite durable.

Even the screen size of the iPhone 8 may get a little expanded as some users of Apple want the tech entity to actually develop a bigger display for the iPhone 8. And an AMOLED screen which is curved can also get equipped with the eight generation iPhone as the rumors indicate so.

However, with such anticipations doing the rounds related to iPhone 8, the next Smartphone by Apple is definitely going to be biggest creations by the company.
