Learn about router basic configuration. What are the different ways to fix issues with router basic configuration?
Router is a networking device that determines to which destination the data packets are to be sent as next. It is called so as it determines the route of the data packets. The functioning of router is similar to a switching device in network. As there are a lot of paths for data transmission over network, the router only selects the shortest path to reach the destination. The router basic configuration is the process of making the router into the suitable format for transmitting the data packets over it. For configuring the router there are some ways. First user has to rename the router. Then the user needs to set the system clock. Then set the banner for the router. Now set the description for the interface and finally set the password for it. There are chances for occurrence of some problems with router configurations.
Following details give users information regarding ways to solve router basic configuration issues:
- Cable problems
- Computer settings
- Traffic on the network
Cables that are used for connecting the system with the network via a router may cause problems. Outdated, crimped or scraped cables may not transfer data properly. Sometimes it even prevents a computer from detecting the network or router. So before using the cables make it sure that the cable is free from any kind of scraps or cut and verify that the cable is all right. Also try to connect the cables properly with the system and router.
Most of the computers can save automatically the configurations or settings of a network or router on it. But if a new router is placed on the network, computers may not identify that existence. So the computers must be rebooted to identify the router and its configurations. It may help the system to configure the new router automatically on it. Or if the configurations are made manually, the user has to change it for the new router. Else the computers may not detect and work with such routers.
Sometimes the traffic on the network also causes the improper working of the router. Due to high traffic or increase in the number of the data connections, the router may fail to handle all the traffic through the network. To avoid such problems, the router configurations must be changed. Or by updating the firmware and reducing the number of computers by removing from the network also we can solve the traffic issue of the router.
