Configure Your Router
There are certain router settings that you would appreciate changing for a deeper use of your router and devices.
Change Your Router's Login Information
So you just got your router and you connected it successfully to the internet and to your devices. Then, the next step would be to manually configure your credentials, namely your password to your router. This is both for the security and the personalization of your account. All routers function on the same principle, no matter the manufacturer. The login process is still the same.
If you want to change the login information of your router, go to Settings; then, click on Reset Router Password (or something very similar to this). After completing these steps, type a new password, save the configuration, and then log out of your router. Log on back to make sure changes were applied.
Change Your Router's IP Address
If you can change login information, you can also change your IP address. If you don’t want to have the standardized IP address, it isn’t hard. You should return to the Settings panel of your router; you can do this, by typing the IP address of the router in the address bar of your browser. If you didn’t change this previously, the IP address should be 192.168.0.1. The next step is to type the login information, and after successfully getting access to the router, click on Settings; then on Setup and choose Network Setup. From these Router Settings, you can now type a new and personalized IP address.
Setting Up Parental Controls
Parents will appreciate this. If you want to protect children from unwanted internet content, there are two different types of parental control. There is the filtering parental control and monitoring parental control.
These are self-explanatory. Monitoring parental control will allow parents to see what children are doing online, it functions more as supervision.
The filtering parental control is the filtering option; this means parents can enable or disable on criteria of age-restricted content, on a time limit of use of internet etcetera. Parents have a wide range of options to make sure children are not overusing inappropriate content online.
Reset Your Router
This is a valuable option for users who forgot their login information. Most routers have an onboard reset button – which can be called Reboot, Restart or Reset. Yet, this might actually initiate the factory reboot of the router, so it could bring unwanted results. Instead of resetting the device, you might try to disconnect the router from the internet, unplug it from the power source, leave it for a couple of minutes and plug them back one by one.
Update the Router's Firmware
Making your updates is a necessary endeavor. In order to update the router, visit the website of the manufacturer and check if there are upgrades or updates available.
And this is important: when you want to connect another device to your PC or laptop, always choose the options Home when doing so.
More about the 192.168.0.1 IP Address
The IP address 192.168.0.1 is quite popular with most router manufacturers – especially with NETGEAR and D-Link. Users probably are familiar that every device connected to the Internet has its Internet Protocol Address, or briefly IP address.
There are two different types of IP addresses; there is the private IP address (owned by each device and shown only in its private network) and public IP address (which is a conversion of the private IP address to the one available to users and devices outside the said private network).
The IP address 192.168.0.1 is among the most used addresses out there and is the most popular address. This is a private IP, most commonly used by some broadband routers; among them, being mostly Netgear and D-Link models.
The IP addresses are unique to each device. They are assigned by their ISP – or the internet service provider. The difference between private and public IP addresses comes in terms of visibility. The private IP addresses (your router also has one) are only assigned to private networks. But unlike public addresses, the private ones don’t need to be uniquely identified, considering this is not a direct access address or an access point. But this private IP address is only accessible from that private network – as security measure.
Internet Assigned Numbers Authority or IANA
IANA is a large organization responsible for IP address assignation worldwide. Initially, IANA developed the IP version 4, most commonly known as IPv4. The IPv4 is a unique 32 digit number usually organized in four sections separated by a decimal point from each other.
Public IP addresses need to be unique; this is highly necessary, as public IP addresses function like a physical address, and indicates to the world which is the address where you can be found, exactly like an email or a telephone number – all unique. This large diversity proved challenging for IANA, which could only deal with 4 billion different IP addresses. This problem was addressed by developing the IPv6 version – which was able to accommodate more combinations than its predecessor.
Private addresses came as a result after IANA decided to make some certain parts of the internet activity private, in blocks. At the moment, we are talking about almost 18 million different private IP addresses, and all are reserved for usage under private networks. Since they are only used inside that private network, there isn’t a strict necessity for private IP addresses to be unique, but only to be unique within that private network.
So for all networks, big and small, the router assigns a network address and a private IP address that is connected to the said network. Every device member of the network can, from there, connect to another device member of the network. But this only works as an intranet, as devices within a private network, can connect to each other, but not to the internet. Differently put, in order to connect to the internet, the devices in a private network need to connect through an ISP first.
Setting Up a Broadband Connection
The first step is to connect the broadband modem to a router; this can be done by picking up the standard cable Category 5 ethernet; next, you plug it in the DSL or cable modem, to the port of the router which is marked as WAN or Internet.
After successfully completing this step, you need to take another standard Ethernet cable and connect it to the PC or laptop through one of the router LAN ports.If the router has a built-in wireless option for connectivity, then users can use any smart device to connect to the internet via WiFi signal.
