Installing and Configuring Routers

Today we’re going to talk about installing and configuring wired or wireless router for home use.  Before we dive into that however, we explore the process of assessing the various types of routers, considerations for selecting the appropriate one for your home office and getting it set up and getting connected.

Your basic checklist will include determining the standard you will use based upon the types of electronics to be used, the routers placement – such as centered vs. cornered, the work zone coverage area, antenna type, amongst other factors which will determine router type.

You’re going to learn about the significance of router placement, the meaning of seepage and what access and coverage issues it causes, connection power sources and why direct device-to-device connection via Ethernet cable is the correct method for your initial set up.

And we’ll discuss at length the actual setup process which varies from one router to another given some come with installation software and default settings, and others do not and whether or not that plays a part in identifying the routers default IP address.

And finally, you’ll learn the importance of changing all the default settings to more unique, secure settings including SSID, keys, username, password, and login IP address.
