The Netgear network setup process on RouterLogin.net typically completes after following the router's Setup Wizard. This process varies between each router model, but is mostly similar by having users select a few choices. The wizard automatically detects and sets up the Internet connection type and DNS information of the network unless the user decides to enter these settings manually. If the original router instructions are missing, the Netgear support website provides specific guides for many of the company's models.
Netgear users can check their router settings by viewing the Router Status page, which shows the router's local IP address, Internet IP address, wireless network name and more. These details help verify that the router is set up and working properly. If a field is blank or contains only zeroes, the router settings may be incorrect.
RouterLogin.net and RouterLogin.com are Internet domains registered by Netgear that the company uses to send customers to its router's setup page. The redirect occurs because Netgear programs its routers to recognize when the domain is requested and forward users to the router's IP address. The domain allows a Netgear user to access his router without remembering its specific IP address. If these domains do not work, 192.168.0.1 and 192.168.0.2 are two common local IP addresses that Netgear routers use.
