Get Started with NETGEAR genie
A750 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Router JR6150
Router Setup Preparation
You can set up your router with the NETGEAR genie automatically, or you can use the genie
menus and screens to set up your router manually. However, before you start the setup
process, you need to have your ISP information on hand and make sure the laptops,
computers, and other devices in the network have the settings described in this section.
Use Standard TCP/IP Properties for DHCP
If you set up your computer to use a static IP address, you need to change the settings so
that it uses Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP).
Gather ISP Information
For DSL broadband service, when your Internet service starts, your Internet service provider
(ISP) typically gives you all of the information needed to connect to the Internet. You might
need this information to set up the router to use your Internet service. If you cannot locate this
information, ask your ISP to provide it. When your Internet connection is working, you no
longer need to launch the ISP login program on your computer to access the Internet. When
you start an Internet application, your router automatically logs you in. You might need the
following information to set up your router:
•The ISP configuration information for your DSL account
•ISP login name and password
•Fixed or static IP address settings (special deployment by ISP)
Wireless Devices and Security Settings
Make sure that the wireless device or computer that you are using supports WPA or WPA2
wireless security, which is the wireless security supported by the router. For information
about the router’s preconfigured security settings, see Basic Wireless Settings on page 25.
Types of Logins and Access
Different types of logins have different purposes. It is important that you understand the
difference so that you know which login to use when.
Types of logins:
•Router login. The login that your ISP provided logs you in to the router interface from
NETGEAR genie. See Use NETGEAR genie after Installation on page 17 for details
about this login.
•ISP login. This logs you in to your Internet service. Your service provider gave you this
login information in a letter or some other way. If you cannot find this login information,
contact your service provider.
