How to Setup NETGEAR N300 Wireless Router Without CD

I have Comcast internet and I need a play by play on how to set up my wireless router so I can have WiFi. It did not come with a CD. I know I have to go to and such and the default user name is password and the password is password or 1234 but it doesn't work and I'm not even 100% sure I have the wires set up right. I have also downloaded the manual but it says setup Netgear router using setup wizard. My router model is Netgear n300.

The Netgear N300 wireless router comes with high-performance wireless speed, improved wifi coverage, guest network access, and easy setup and management. The Netgear N300 wireless router can be installed without a CD. The process is quite simple.

First, you have to gather and unbox necessary equipment, such as an adapter, router, and Ethernet cable. Later, you will have to access the router settings and configure them to set up the router without a CD.

You can also use the Netgear Genie app to monitor, control, and repair the personal network. It also makes the printer compatible to print from iPhones or iPads.

Follow them carefully. Make sure you have two sets of ethernet cable before starting the configuration process

Step 1: Connect your Netgear N300 router to your computer with the help of an Ethernet cable. One end of the cable goes inside the LAN port while the other end goes inside the ethernet port of your computer.

The ADSL cable will go into the WAN port of the router. Wait for few minutes to let the connection between the two devices get established.

Step 2: Open your web browser and enter, this is the default IP address for Netgear router setup portal. Type this in your URL field and hit Enter. This will redirect you to the login portal of your router.

Step 3: Enter "admin" in the SSID field and leave the password field blank and hit enter. If your ISP has provided any separate login credentials for the router then enter those.

The default SSID and Password varies from region to region as well so in case these do not work, simply google, "Netgear Default iD and Password".

Step 4: Now you will be redirected to the main router settings page. Click on WAN or DHCP settings from the dashboard, this will take you to your DHCP settings tab.

Here, check the 'Yes' box under DHCP as this will provide your router will automatic IP address from your ISP, save the settings and come back to the main page.

Step 5: Now go to Security settings, here choose WPA2 as your encryption type and just below that will be a box for 'Passkey', this is your wifi password. Make sure to create a strong password which you can remember.

Save the settings. You have successfully configured your router now. Restart it to let the router implement the change settings.

Hopefully, these steps helped you in resolving the issue. in case you have any further query feel free to respond and I will be glad to help you out.
