Types of Logins
Separate types of logins serve different purposes. It is important that you understand the
difference so that you know which login to use when.
Types of logins:
•ISP login. The login that your ISP gave you 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.
•WiFi network key or password. Your router is preset with a unique wireless network
name (SSID) and password for wireless access. This information is on the router label.
•Router login. This logs you in to the router interface from a web browser as admin.
Use a Web Browser to Access the Router
When you connect to the network (either with WiFi or with an Ethernet cable), you can use a
web browser to access the router to view or change its settings. The first time that you access
the router, NETGEAR genie automatically checks to see if your router can connect to your

your ISP information and make sure that the computers and devices in the network are using
the settings described here.
