Complete configure process:
First of all you have to connect your modem to the internet port of your new Net Gear router and then your computer to any of the LAN ports among 4 ports which are available in your router.
Then just switch off the computer, router and the modem and after sometimes just on all of these devices and just wait for the complete booting process.
Then just open your web browser and just type the routers IP address. The IP address should be http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 . Just type any one on your address bar and enter the press button. After the enter button you can visit the log in interface of the router. There just use the by default username and password which is “admin” and “password” respectively. Remember one thing the username and password are always case sensitive. If you are using an old one and someone already changed the username and pass word then the default username and pass word will not work. In such cases, you need to restore the router to factory defaults. By doing this you can use the default password again and can log easily for the configuration page.
