  1. Use an Ethernet cable to connect a computer to any one of the four LAN ports of the NETGEAR router.
  2. Click the following link to enter the router's setup pages - try either http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.1.1.
  3. When prompted for a Username and Password, enter the default username and password (admin; password) unless you have already changed it.


  4. Select Wireless Settings from the Setup menu in the left-hand navigation bar.
  5. Under Security Options you'll find details of your security key/passphrase
    • WRITE DOWN this as you will require it to connect wireless computers and devices to your network.
