The Placement

The placement of your AC1750 is the key to setup a Netgear router with ease. That is why, we recommend keeping your Netgear router in an open, higher, and center location of your home.

The Wall Socket

Once done with the placement process, power on your Netgear Nighthawk router by pushing the on/ off button. After pushing the power button, the power LED on your router will start blinking and become stable shortly.

Open a Web Browser

Turn on any WiFi-enabled device of your choices like a PC or laptop. Load up a web browser on it. After opening the web browser, hover your mouse cursor over the browser’s address bar and click on it. Enter and hit the Enter key or click on Search.
