D-Link routers are one of the finest router brands worldwide that is well-known for its excellent performance, exceptional speed and amazing internet quality. With a D-Link router you can surf the web as much as you like, watch movies, do some online shopping and even play games without any disturbances.
If you are the lucky owner of a brand-new D-Link router let me help you out with the setting up of the router. Besides the modem and the D-Link router you will need an ethernet cable, the Wi-Fi configuration card and the user manual for reference.
Check out the steps below to get started with your D-Link router.
- Use an ethernet cable to establish a connection between the router and modem. Make sure it is well connected to the WAN port.
- Either wirelessly or via a wired connection, get your computer connected to the new D-Link network.
- Go to any web browser such as google and type in the correct IP address of your router.
- Now you will be directed to the router login page. On logging on to it, for the first time you need to use admin as username and the password is a blank space.
- Now you will be able to access the router setup wizard. Click next to begin the set-up process.
- The router will auto-scan to detect the internet connection type. If this method fails, you might have to manually key in the connection type.
- Create an SSID and password. Make sure the passwords are strong and hard to guess.
- Create a login for the router as well. This will be your login password for the router login panel going forward.
- Pick the correct time zone for your location.
- Save all changes made successfully and reboot the router to apply the changes to settings.
- Now your D-Link router is set up successfully and you can get started.
Here are some quick tips to get the maximum use from your D-Link router:
- Make sure to keep your router in a center space of your house so that the signal is able to reach across different rooms and sections of the house easily.
- In order to get good signal and connectivity place your router above the ground level such as on a windowsill or table.
- Do not place the router near any electrical appliances as it can block the incoming signals.
- Do not connect to too many devices as it will negatively affect internet speed and quality.
