Internet. Please locate it and have it on hand before you start the
installation procedure.

the welcome letter your DSL ISP sent you when you signed up for
your service. Record your DSL Internet service account user
name and password here:
User name:
Your telephone number or DSL account number. If you do not
have voice service, you can use your DSL account number in
place of a phone number.
If you don’t know or cannot locate your user name and password,
call your DSL Internet service provider. The table on the next
page lists the contact information for some of the primary DSL
Be very specific when speaking with your DSL Internet
service provider. For example, you could say:

DSL service. Example devices are telephones, fax
machines, answering machines, and caller ID displays.
Connect the ADSL port of the modem router to the ADSL
port of the microfilter.
Note: Use an ADSL microfilter for every phone line in the
house if your modem router and telephone connect to the
same phone line.

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.
WiFi Network Name (SSID)
Network Key (Password)
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.
Note: Your network names (SSIDs) and passphrases are casesensitive. Your network name, security method, and passphrase need
to be the same for all the wireless devices connected to your router
on a network.
Wireless Network Settings
Record the default preset wireless settings that are printed on the
label in the spaces here for easy reference.
2.4 GHz WiFi network name (SSID):
2.4 GHz network key (password):
5 GHz WiFi network name (SSID):
5 GHz network key (password):
If you change the default settings, record them here for easy
reference, and then store this booklet in a safe place:
2.4 GHz WiFi network name (SSID):
2.4 GHz network key (password):
5 GHz WiFi network name (SSID):
5 GHz network key (Password):
To retrieve or update your wireless password, type in a web browser and log in using the
default user name (admin) and password (password).
Select Basic > Wireless Settings to locate your wireless passwords.
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 (Wi-Fi Protected Setup)—
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. The device will then be connected to
your 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 will 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.
Access the N600 Router to Make 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.
To log in to the router:
1. Launch a web browser from a computer or wireless device that
is connected to the router.
2. Type or in the
address field of the browser. A login screen displays:
3. Enter admin for the user name and password for the password.
The NETGEAR genie screen displays:
See the User Manual for more information about the router
To change the password for the router user name:
1. Log in to the router.
2. Select Advanced > Administration > Set Password to display the
Set Password screen:
3. Type your old password, and type the new password twice.
If the browser does not display the web page:
Make sure that the computer 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.
Browse to
If the computer is set to a static or fixed IP address (this is
uncommon), change it to obtain an IP address automatically from
the router.
If the modem router does not power on:
1. Check your cables.
Disconnect and reconnect each cable. There is usually an
audible click when the cable is correctly connected.
See if the telephone cable connecting your DSL modem
router to the wall jack is plugged into a filter. A filter is not
required if you do not have telephone voice service. A filter
installed where it is not needed might eliminate your ADSL

USB Printer
The first time you use a printer, you need to click Connect. You might
be asked to install the driver for this printer. After the driver is
installed, the printer status changes to Available.
Note: Some USB printers (for example: HP and Lexmark printer)
request that you do not connect the USB cable until you are prompted
by the installation software.
If the USB printer is detected and connected automatically, you need
to disconnect the printer, and then wait for the prompt asking you to
click Connect.
Once the printer shows Available status, the grayed out Paused state
no longer displays in the Windows Printers and Faxes window.
This USB printer is ready. The utility does not need to always hold the
connection of this USB printer. Once there is any print job for this
printer, the USB utility connects to this USB printer automatically, then
