How To Configure Wireless Internet
Configuring wireless Internet can be easy or more challenging, based on your knowledge of how to configure wireless internet. If you would simply like to have wireless internet up and running without hassle, then it can be very simple to do. The primary term for automatic configuring of wireless internet is DHCP. This will allow you to browse the internet quickly without worrying about static IPs, and other technical aspects of wireless routing.
- To configure a basic wireless network all that is needed is to setup what is known as DHCP. This is the term used for automatic wireless connections, and it is what has made connecting to a wireless networks vastly simpler than in the past.
- Most routers configured for wireless Internet, are enabled automatically with DHCP, all that is needed is to plug in your wireless router to your Internet modem, and then wait for the router to boot up. The lights will flash during this process. Then check on a wireless device whether you can see a default network name that corresponds with your router. If you can, then it was that simple. If not, then you may need to log into the router and do some work.
- Usually configured routers can be accessed with an Internet browser by typing in an “address,” provided in the manual. You may need to also type in a password and username to login. Once you are logged in you can browse through the various tabs showing the options you can configure on your router. Look for DHCP to see if it is enabled. You should also check your network connections on your wireless device to make sure it is enabled for DHCP. Once the settings are saved on both your router and wireless device, your wireless network will show on your device and you will be able to connect. From the browser menu, you can also change other options for further customization such as your network name and the various security options. It is wise to do this, and not to leave your router set with the default options as this is a potential security threat.
