Netgear router login:
If your Netgear router has not been previously setup and configured, you will need to connect directly with the router via ethernet cable.
If your wireless router has already been setup, and your laptop or PC has already connected to your router.
You can view the Netgear router login box by simply using your computers Internet browser.
You can also login remotely over the Internet in case you need to manage your wireless home network while your away.
WHNME will show you both ways to login to your Netgear router, locally and remotely.
Lets get started:
Direct connection login:
To view the Netgear router login by direct connection, means you that you must connect an ethernet cable from your router to an available working computer on your wireless home network that has a functioning RJ45 port/network interface card (NIC) installed.
When your infront of the wireless router, the routers power cord, and a network cable to connect from the Netgear router to your PC or laptop, preform the following steps.
Now that your directly connected to your Netgear wireless router, continue through the next section "Logging in wirelessly:" to access the Netgear router login box.
Logging in wirelessly:
If your Netgear router has been previously configured, you can view the Netgear router login box simply by opening your Internet browser on your PC or laptop and typing in the routers internal IP network address.
If the Netgear router was changed from the default settings, and you need to gain access to your Netgear wireless router. You can reset the router back to its default factory settings, by following the Reset Netgear Router procedure.
Remote router login:
If you need to access your Netgear router remotely over the Internet, then we need to setup your wireless router to provide access through one of its ports from outside its firewall.
After you've logged into your netgear router, and your viewing the basic setup and configuration screen.
TIP: I would like to make it clear, that it is never a good idea to leave remote management turned on all the time, because there are some individuals in the world who would find it simply irresistable until they have proven to you they have the ability to enter your network.
This will present you with the Netgear router login box to perform your remote management tasks.
Thats It! Thats all there is to it.
