How to Access NETGEAR® Router Settings
Computer networks are common in home and office. If you have more than one computer, you can set up a computer network to share data. NETGEAR routers help you to set up a wireless network. Each computer that needs to be a part of the wireless network needs to have a wireless network adapter. Most of the new computers come with wireless network cards but if you do not have it on your computer, you can purchase a wireless adapter card and connect it a PCI slot. Once the network card is configured, you need to configure the router to serve your network needs. You can share Internet connection, printer and few other system resources over the network. Your computers do not have to be in the limits of wires and anyone who walks into the network range with a laptop which has a wireless adapter can be a part of the wireless network, if he knows the SSID. NETGEAR routers have a firmware program which helps you to set up the wireless network and it holds the router settings. The firmware programs provide the user a router configuration page to customize various settings. You need to access the router configuration page to set up various network services like DHCP, Internet sharing etc. and to troubleshoot various network issues.
