Before pulling you into a trap, before getting your system and network hacked, let us change the default login credentials to something secure and valuable. Well, all know that hackers have been hacking wireless devices and its connected network for a long time, people take this situation lightly but actually, this is a very serious matter. In fact, they can have an easy access on your network because you haven’t changed the network name and password from default to your own desire. The process of Netgear Router Installation is also done with the default credentials that are provided to you by your Internet Service Provider.
If you have never and not even thinking to change the admin name and password on your device and network after the process of Netgear Router Setup, then you are itself giving the hackers full opportunity to steal all your valuable and personal data by the means of default details itself because you are on their top of the list. It may also threaten you to know that there is a list available on the social networking sites that provide hackers all the login details set as default and it will be much easier for intruders to log in that you think.
Other sources are also available for hackers as they download the PDF manuals available in the support section of nearly all websites of router login provided itself by the service provider of the device. In that case, we respect the emotions of our valuable users and that’s why we provided some important steps in order to protect our users from hacking and also keep all the private stuff away and safe from intruders.
Pay attention to some below given steps:
In case you have lost your password and need to set your device back to factory default, then you just need to perform some of the below:
- Factory Reset Button
Well, you are supposed to hold the factory reset hole with the help of paper clip or a thin pen for 30 seconds (at the back of the router), after that release it. Also note if you release the button before time, then the procedure of factory reset procedure will not be completed and it will straight away reset your device. After completing your count to 30, do not proceed further until the LED lights are completely stable on your device (solid green).
- Connect your smart device
Now, it is the time that you connect your computer or a laptop to one of your router’s Ethernet port. Nearly all router’s have the web browser accessible administrator page that you are supposed to log in the Netgear Router Default IP into the field of the address bar of a web browser in order to access the setting of your device. For that you need to be much more certain that you are supposed to connect with your device with the help of an Ethernet cable because most routers do not support the administration via wireless settings, so they are disabled by the manufacturers itself.
- Fill the default login details in the required fields
Netgear Router Login does need a series of default username and password that is used to be filled into all the required fields. You can easily get these credentials from the manufacturer of your device or the Internet Service Provider. This step can also be done if you type the routers make and model into the field of the address bar.
- Create a strong password
After the setup of your device is successfully completed, we would like suggesting you to create an extra strong password (from default to something more secure) for your Netgear Login Router page and on the other hand to secure your device and network from intruders also. In case you lost the login credentials, so you have no option left then to reboot your entire system.
Note: Do this process under IT guy supervision.
