Netgear Router Setup Wireless For doing the Netgear router setup on a wireless device, it does not need to have a desktop computer, you can always use your wireless laptop, smartphone, or tablet. You just need to connect your wireless device to the preset wireless settings of your NETGEAR wireless router then configure the device for an Internet connection. This will help you understand how to install the Netgear wireless router by using a wireless device.

• Easily Shared Internet

The main reason for using the router is to connect multiple users to the internet. Connecting to the Internet requires a publicly-unique IP address. Internet providers offer a single IP address or charge fees for large amounts of publicly routable addresses.

The best solution is to add a router with network address translation enabled. If you connect the internet through a router with NAT allow the router to use a single public IP address & a series of UDP port to share the connection. Without the use of NAT, it’s difficult or impossible to connect a large organization’s computer to the internet.

Security and Adaptability

If you connect internet modem to a pc, the pc becomes the host of security-related issues. Expanding a direct connection network will become complicated without the addition of switches or a router & communicating between the individual pc becomes difficult.

Using a router as an intermediary between the outside network and inside the network of a company provides a scalable environment to make security easier. The router is not a replacement of firewall or anti-malware, but it’s a crucial step toward a large secure network environment.
