Router mode: Manage the Router Information Protocol
If the access point/router is in router mode, Router Information Protocol (RIP) lets the
access point/router exchange routing information with other routers. By default, RIP is
enabled in both directions (in and out) without a particular RIP version.
To manage the RIP settings:
1. Open a web browser from a computer or mobile device that is connected to the
access point/router network.
2. Enter http://www.routerlogin.net in the address field.
If you are not connected to the access point/router network but to the same network
as the access point/router, enter the IP address that is assigned to the access
point/router. If you do not know the IP address, see Find the IP address of the access
point/router on page 29.
The Sign-In page displays. You are prompted to sign in with your NETGEAR account.
If the access point/router is not connected to the Internet, you are prompted to sign
in with the local login credentials (see Log in to the access point/router when it is
not connected to the Internet on page 28).
3. Click the Login button.
The NETGEAR Account Login page displays.
4. Enter your registered email address and password and click the LOG IN button.
The BASIC Home page displays.
5. Select ADVANCED > Setup > LAN Setup.
The LAN Setup page displays.
6. From the RIP Direction menu, select the RIP direction:
• Both. The access point/router broadcasts its routing table periodically and
incorporates information that it receives. This is the default setting.
• Out Only. The access point/router broadcasts its routing table periodically but
does not incorporate the RIP information that it receives.
• In Only. The access point/router incorporates the RIP information that it receives
but does not broadcast its routing table.
7. From the RIP Version menu, select the RIP version:
• Disabled. The RIP version is disabled. This is the default setting.
•RIP-1. This format is universally supported. It is adequate for most networks, unless
you are using an unusual network setup.
