The wireless network settings of the router must match the wireless network settings of any wireless devices that connect wirelessly to the router (such as wireless adapter cards and wireless computers).

For a wireless connection, the NETGEAR router and each wireless computer must use the same SSID, also called the wireless network name, and the same wireless security. NETGEAR strongly recommends that you use wireless security.

Note:Indoors, computers can connect over wireless networks at a range of several hundred feet. This can allow others outside of your immediate area to access your network.

The Wireless Settings screen lets you set your wireless network connections and the wireless security option for your network and router. To configure the wireless network, you can either manually specify your network name (SSID) and your wireless security settings,if the clients in your network are WPS capable, you can use Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) to automatically set the SSID and implement WPA/WPA2 security on both the router and the client device.

If you configure the router from a wireless computer and you change the router’s SSID, channel, or security settings, you will lose your wireless connection when you click Apply. You must then change your computer’s wireless settings to match
the router’s new settings. To avoid this situation, you can use a computer that is connected to the router with an Ethernet cable.

For a complete overview of all the security configurations that can be implemented on this router, see the online User Manual. A link to the User Manual is on the Resource CD.

Setting Your SSID and Wireless Security Manually

To specify the wireless settings, you must know the following:

• Name (11N 2.4 GHz SSID). The default is NETGEAR.
• Name (11N 5 GHz SSID). The default is NETGEAR-5G.
• The wireless mode (802.11n) that each wireless adapter supports. The default is Up to 145Mbps at 2.4 GHz and 450Mbps at 5 GHz.
• Wireless security option. NETGEAR strongly recommends that you use wireless security. To successfully implement wireless security, check each wireless adapter to determine which wireless security option it supports.

To set up basic wireless connectivity on your router:

1. Log in to the N750 wireless gigabit router at http://www.routerlogin.net, with the default user name of admin and default password of password, or using whatever LAN address and password you have set up.

2. Select Wireless Settings under Setup in the main menu to display the Wireless Settings screen.

3. Select your region. In the United States, the default region cannot be changed. For the rest of the world, the default region is Europe.

4. Set up the 2.4 GHz wireless network:

a. Enter the SSID name. The default is NETGEAR.

Note:The SSID of any wireless adapters must match the SSID you configure in the N750 wireless gigabit router. If they do not match, you will not get a wireless connection.

b. Select the operating channel for the wireless mode.

The default is Auto. When Auto is selected, the router finds the best operating channel available. If you notice interference from nearby devices, you can select a different channel Channels 1, 6, and 11 will not interfere with each other.

c. Leave the wireless mode set to the default setting of Up to 145Mbps for 2.4GHz.

5. Select security options for the 2.4GHz wireless network.

The wireless Security Options are set to None by default. NETGEAR strongly recommends that you use wireless security. You can select a different Security Option and a different passphrase for each wireless network. For the highest performance of the 2.4GHz wireless network and the most secure encryption, NETGEAR recommends that you use WPA2-PSK as your security option.

6. Set up the 5GHz wireless network:

a. Enter the SSID name. The default is NETGEAR-5G.

The SSID of any wireless adapters must match the SSID you configure in the NETGEAR N750 wireless gigabit router. If they do not match, you will not get a wireless connection.

b. Select the operating channel for the wireless mode. The default is 153 for North America, and 44 for most other countries. If there is an Auto option in the channel list and you select it, the router will find the best operating channel available.If you notice interference from nearby devices, you can select a different channel.

c. Leave the wireless mode set to the default setting of Up to 450Mbps for 5GHz.

7. Select security options for the 5 GHz wireless network.

The wireless Security Options are set to None by default. NETGEAR strongly recommends that you use wireless security. You can select a different Security Option and a different passphrase for each wireless network. For the highest performance of the 5 GHz wireless network and the most secure encryption, NETGEAR recommends that you use WPA2-PSK as your security option.

8. Click Apply to save your changes.

Note:If you are configuring the NETGEAR router from a wireless computer and you change the router’s SSID, channel, or security settings, you will lose your wireless connection when you click Apply. You must then change the wireless settings of your computer to match the router’s new settings.

To set up your computers for wireless connectivity:

1. Program the wireless settings of each computer or wireless adapter to have the same SSID (wireless network name) as the router.

2. Check that the wireless adapter on each computer can support the mode and security option that you selected.

3. Check that the security settings on each wireless device match the security settings of the router. For example, if you selected a security option requiring a passphrase, then the same passphrase must be used for each wireless computer.

4. Check that each wireless computer has a wireless link and is able to obtain an IP address by DHCP from the NETGEAR router.

Note:For a Windows PC, go to the Control Panel and select Network Connections. Check the Wireless Connections Properties and ensure that TCP/IP Properties are set to Obtain an IP address automatically.

To access the Internet from any computer connected to your NETGEAR N750 wireless gigabit router, launch a browser such as Microsoft Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox.
