How do I Set up a Home Network Router 

Setting up a home network router is not a big deal. This post will make you aware of the step-by-step guide to set up a home network router. Read on.

1. Prefer an appropriate position

Choose a place in your home which has the best connectivity. Or you can place the in an open space floor or ground. Once the router installation is completed, you can move back your device to its indented location.

2. Connect your modem to the router

Plug your device into an electrical outlet and push the On/Off (power) button on your main router. Now, connect your modem with your device with a good quality Ethernet cable. Also, be sure to make the cable connections rigid and perfect. Loose and poor quality cables result in the setup issues. It is worth notable that, when you are connecting the devices with each other, the power supposed to be shut down. Once you have connected all your devices with each other, plug all of them back again.

3. Connect your wired device to the router

Connect a PC or a laptop to your router with the help of an Internet (LAN) cable. However, it is not recommended to use the WiFi connection of your router for initial installation because WiFi settings are yet unconfigured.

4. Turn off interference-creating devices

During the router setup process, you need to shut down all the third-party devices that include all your metal appliances, Bluetooth devices, WiFi, hotspot, etc. Sometimes, the device fails to achieve the available WiFi signals due to such devices. Other interference-creating devices are microwaves, treadmills, mixer grinders, metal objects, mirrors, glasses, and much more. So make sure to keep your router far away from such devices.

5. Log in to your router

Open a web browser and enter IP address in the URL bar. Once you press enter key, the login page appears. Now, it will ask you to enter the default username and password to go further.

6. Consider a different username and password

The WiFi router comes with the default username and password for login. It also comes with an extra advanced feature that you can change the SSID of your device according to your own preference. Do not change the wireless setting unless you are aware of it. If needed take the guidance from our expert technicians.

7. Verify your network connection

To verify the local network connection between your devices and the router, open a web browser and type in the IP address of your device in the field of the address bar (you can easily find it at the back of your device).
Congrats! Your home network router has been set up properly. Now, you can connect additional computers to your router. Also, if you want to configure additional network security features, you can do so via the router admin page.
