Wireless Network Router Easy Install

For those people who want to skip the long setup instructions when installing their new wireless router this quick guide can be followed to take the easy way. Remember that the easy way is not the best and is only meant for those who are in a hurry. For proper installation you should follow the instructions that came with your networking router.

Step 1

Unpack the wireless router from the box and remove all labels and packaging materials surrounding it. Then unhook your old router if you have one in place. If you do not have a old router proceed to step 2.

Step 2

Find and plug the power supply in the back of your new router and find and plug the network cable that came with your device in port 1 at the back of the router. Take the network cable leading from your cable or DSL modem and plug it in the back of the router labeled modem. This port is usually yellow in color.

Step 3

Next, plug the power supply of your router in a power source. Give it 30 seconds and then reboot your cable or DSL modem. This will allow your new wireless router to sync with your cable or DSL network and obtain a IP address.

In most cases these three steps work to bring your new router online and gives it the ability for mobile devices and your computers to connect to it. Look for a default SSID to be broadcast on your wireless devices. This SSID depends on the router you are using. For popular brands it may show either Linksys, Cisco, TP-Link, ASUS, NetGear, Belkin, EDIMAX, or others.

Important! You are not secure operating with a quick setup like this. While you may be connected to the Internet you should now proceed to the original installation instructions that came with your wireless networking router and setup a secure username and password.
