Step 1: Shut down the computer you're going to use to set up the Netgear wireless router. Unplug the modem you're using with the router. Step 2: Connect the modem into the Internet port on the wireless router with an Ethernet cable. Use another Ethernet cable to connect your computer and a LAN port on the back of the router. Step 3: Plug the modem into the wall and wait two minutes. After it connects plug the router into a wall outlet and wait about two minutes for it to connect. When the power and Internet lights are green and not blinking the router is connected. Finally power on your computer. Step 4: Open a Web browser. Navigate to the router login page (see Resources). Enter admin and password as the username and password in the popup window. Click "OK". Step 5: Click "Next" to run the setup wizard and follow the prompts. Click "Done" to finish.

Step 1: Connect the wireless router to your modem with an Ethernet cable plugged in to the "Internet" or "Line In" port. Connect your router to your computer with an additional networking cable from one of the numbered ports on the back of your router. Later once the router is configured you can disconnect it from your computer. Plug the router into a power source and press the power button.

Step 2: Open your browser and navigate to the following IP: Log in with the default username "admin" and password "password."

Step 3: Click the "Wireless Settings" link from your router's dashboard to change settings. To change the name of your network type in a new value in the "SSID" field. Choose a security option from the list such as WEP or WPA to secure your network against intruders and require a password for access.

Step 4: Click the "Apply" button to change wireless settings. You can now log in from a compatible wireless device with the new password you've specified. Exit your browser and disconnect the Ethernet cable from your computer if you'd like to wirelessly connect.
