How to connect wifi router to internet

To connect your Wi-Fi router to the internet, follow these general steps:

Position your router: Place your Wi-Fi router in a central location within your home or office, away from obstructions and electronic devices that may interfere with the signal.

Connect your modem: Use an Ethernet cable to connect your modem to the WAN or Internet port on your Wi-Fi router. The port is usually labeled “WAN” or “Internet” and is often a different color than the other ports.

Power on the devices: Plug in the power cords for your modem and Wi-Fi router, and ensure they are turned on. Wait for the devices to power up fully, as indicated by the lights on the front of each device.

Connect to the Wi-Fi network: On your computer or mobile device, go to the Wi-Fi settings and look for the network name (SSID) of your Wi-Fi router. It should be printed on the router or in the documentation that came with it. Select the network and enter the Wi-Fi password if prompted.

Configure the router (if necessary): In some cases, you may need to configure the Wi-Fi router to connect to your specific internet service provider (ISP). This may involve entering your ISP-provided username and password or configuring other settings. Refer to your router’s manual for specific instructions on how to access and configure the router settings.

Test the internet connection: Open a web browser on your computer or mobile device and try to access a website to verify that your Wi-Fi router is successfully connected to the internet.

Please note that the exact steps and settings required may vary depending on your specific router model and internet service provider. It’s recommended to consult the documentation provided with your router or visit the manufacturer’s website for detailed instructions specific to your router model.
