Get the right router
The very first step in setting up a home WiFi network is to get the right router. It is important to take into consideration factors such as the probable distance between the router and the devices connected, the interference levels based on the number of devices operating nearby, the transfer speed required, and security. It is best for the router to have the latest form of wireless encryption which is WPA2.
Connect the router to the modem
Next, the port on the router that is labeled WAN/WLAN/Internet is to be connected to the modem using an Ethernet cable. The router should be switched on.
Open configuration page
In case the router does not come with software, users need to connect the router’s configuration page through the web browser. The web address of the router is to be entered on the web browser. This is provided in the manual or documents that come along with the router. The username and password are also to be entered. These details are provided in the manual.
