The best thing about this router is that it’s suitable for medium and large-scale homes. In addition, it has a dual-band configuration, which means you can shift between 2.4GHz and 5GHz channels, depending on the desired internet speed. However, you have to set up the router properly to make sure it promises an error-free internet connection. So, let’s check out how to set up and install the router at home!
How To Install Netgear N750 Router:
When you order this router, it will come with the main router unit, slide-on stand, power adapter, Ethernet cable, and an installation guide. To prepare the router for installation, you have to take out the protective film and set it up by aligning the base’s arrow with the arrow printed on the case’s back. Then, just slide the router on the base. After this, place the router in an installation-suitable area.
You need to remember that the operating distance of the wireless router from the device can significantly impact the internet speed. So, it’s recommended that you place the router in an open and central part of the home to make sure it has an even signal distribution.
