This step-by-step guide explains how to set up a broadband router for home computer networks. The exact names of configuration settings on these routers vary depending on the specific model. Choose a convenient location to begin installing your router, such as an open floor space or table.
Turn it on. Many network modems connect via an Ethernet cable but USB connections have becoming increasingly common. The cable plugs into the router jack with possible labels as WAN , uplink , or internet. When connecting devices with network cables, be sure each end of the cable connects tightly.
Loose cables are one of the most common sources of network setup problems. After connecting the cable, be sure to power cycle turn off and turn back on the modem to ensure the router recognizes it. Connect one computer to the router. Connect this first computer to the router via a network cable. Note that using the Wi-Fi connection of a wireless router for initial installation is not recommended as its Wi-Fi settings are not yet configured.
Temporarily using a cable for router installation avoids unstable or dropped connections. From the computer connected to the router, open a web browser.
Note that you do not need a working internet connection for this step. Log in to the router. Enter internet connection information. Likewise, if you requested and have been issued a static IP address by your internet, the static IP settings including network mask and gateway address supplied by the provider must also be set in the router.
Update the MAC address of the router. Routers come from the manufacturer with a default name chosen , but there are advantages to using a different name instead. You can also change the Wi-Fi name on a network router. Verify the local network connection. Verify the local network connection between your one computer and the router is working. Connect additional computers to the router. When connecting from a wireless device, ensure the network name — also called a Service Set Identifier SSID — chosen matches that of the router.
Configure network security features. Configure additional network security features as needed to guard your systems against hackers. These Wi-Fi home network security tips contain a checklist to follow.
