Launch a browser. If a web page does not open, close and reopen the browser and type http://routerlogin.net in the address bar, or see Troubleshooting on page 10. 5 Preset Wireless Security This product has a unique WiFi network name (SSID) and network key (password). The default SSID and network key (password) are uniquely generated for every device, like a serial number, to protect and maximize your wireless security. This information is located on the label on the bottom of the product. NETGEAR recommends that you do not change the preset WiFi network name (SSID) and network key (password). If you do change the settings, the security SSID and password on the bottom of the product no longer apply. 5 Wireless Network Settings Record the default preset wireless settings that are printed on the label in the space below for easy reference. WiFi Network Name (SSID): Network Key (Password): If you change the default settings, record them here for easy reference, and then store this booklet in a safe place: WiFi Network Name (SSID): Network Key (Password): To retrieve or update your wireless password, type www.routerlogin.net in a web browser and log in using the default user name (admin) and password (password). Select Wireless Settings to locate your wireless password. 6 Add Wireless Devices to the Network Choose either the manual or Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) method to add wireless computers and other devices to your wireless network. WPS Method If your wireless device supports WPS—NETGEAR calls this method Push 'N' Connect—you might be prompted to press the WPS button on the router instead of entering a password. If this happens: 1. Press the WPS button on the router. 2. Within 2 minutes, press the WPS button on the client device, or follow the WPS instructions that came with your wireless device to complete the WPS process. Then the device connects to the router. 3. Repeat this process to add other WPS wireless devices. Note: WPS does not support WEP security. If you try to connect a WEP client to your network using WPS, it does not work. Manual Method 1. On the wireless device that you want to connect to your router (iPhone, laptop, computer, gaming device), open the software utility that manages its wireless connections. This utility scans for all wireless networks in your area. 2. Look for the preset NETGEAR WiFi network name (SSID) and select it. The SSID is located on the product label on the bottom of the router. Note: If you changed the name of your network during the setup process, look for that network name. 3. Enter the preset password (or your custom password if you changed it), and click Connect. Repeat steps 1–3 to add other wireless devices. 7 Access the Router to Make More Changes After you use NETGEAR Genie to set up the router, you can log in to the router to view its settings or make changes.

You are prompted to enter your saved answers so that you can log in to the router. 9 Troubleshooting If the browser does not display the web page: • • • • • Make sure that the PC is connected to one of the four LAN Ethernet ports, or wirelessly to the router. Make sure that the router is fully up and running. Its WiFi LED should turn on. Close and reopen the browser to make sure that the browser does not cache the previous page. Type http://routerlogin.net. If the PC is set to a static or fixed IP address (this is uncommon), change it to obtain an IP address automatically from the router. ReadySHARE Access After installation and set up, you can insert a USB storage device into the USB port on the router and share the contents with other network users. (If your USB device has special drivers, it is not compatible.) Note: If your USB device requires a power supply, you must use it when connecting your USB device to a NETGEAR router or gateway. It may take up to 2 minutes before the USB drive is ready for sharing after it is connected to the router. To access your USB device: On Windows systems, use any of these methods: • • • Select Start > Run and enter \\readyshare in the dialog box. Click OK. Open Explorer or Safari and enter \\readyshare in the address bar. Open My Network Places and enter \\readyshare in the address bar. 10 On Mac systems, do this: 1. Select Go > Connect to Server. 2. Enter smb://readyshare as the Server Address. 3. Click Connect. The readyshareconnect.exe file (for Windows) is available to download here: www.netgear.com/readyshare ReadySHARE Printer ReadySHARE Printer lets you connect a USB printer to the router’s USB port, and access it wirelessly. To set up ReadySHARE Printer: Step 1: Connect the USB printer to the router’s USB port with a USB printer cable. Step 2: Install the USB printer driver software on each computer that will share the printer. If you do not have the printer driver, contact the printer manufacturer to find and download the most recent printer driver software. Step 3: On each computer that will share the printer, download the NETGEAR USB Control Center utility. The NETGEAR USB utility has a Mac version and a Windows version, which you can access in two different ways: • From the ReadySHARE Printer area of this URL: www.netgear.com/readyshare 11 • From the ReadySHARE tab of the Desktop NETGEAR Genie. NOTE: • • You must install this utility before you can use the ReadySHARE Printer feature. For the ReadySHARE Printer feature to work, this utility must be run in the background. Step 4: Follow the instructions to install the NETGEAR USB Control Center utility. 12 Step 5: After you have installed the utility, select the language. Step 6: If this is the first time you are accessing the utility, you are asked to select the printer and click the Connect button. Once the connection is established, the status changes to Manually connected by xxx.. 13 Step 7: Click the Disconnect button at any time to release the connection. The status then changes to Available. Once the Connect button has been clicked once on all computers in the network, the utility on each of them automatically handles the printing queue and handling. The status of the printer should appear as Available on all of the computers. NOTE: • • • When the status is Available, you can use the USB printer. When the status is Manually connected by xxx, only the xxx computer can use the printer. Other network devices must wait until the xxx computer has released the connection, or until the connection times out (the default time-out value is 30 seconds). You can set the value for the default time-out time from the Tools > Configuration screen. 14 • • The USB Control Center utility must be running for the computer to be able to print to the USB printer attached to the router. If you exit the utility, printing does not work. Some firewall software, such as Comodo, blocks the ReadySHARE Print utility from accessing the USB printer. If you do not see the printer in the utility, you can disable the firewall temporarily to allow the utility to work. Step 8: If your printer supports scanning, make sure that the printer is in the Available state, and click the Network Scanner button. This activates the Scanner window so you can use the printer for scanning.
