Learn to Set-Up WiFi at Home Step by Step Guide!

If your current internet broadband or modem doesn’t provide WiFi Connectivity, then you’re probably on the right page. You can achieve providing Wifi Connectivity at home by purchasing Wifi Router or an Access Point.

I have here Tenda AC7 that will act as WiFi Router:

I bought my Tenda AC7 around 1,585.00 at Lazada, but now it is now re-priced at 1,199.00 WOW.

And here is my Sim-Based LTE+ Modem – Huawei-B525:
(Assuming that this modem doesn’t provide WiFi Connectivity):

Step 1: Connect the WiFi Router to Modem:

Connect WiFi Router to Modem using Patch Cord or LAN Cable. Cable should be connected to the WiFi Router’s Wan Port and other side connected to the Modem’s Lan Port.

Your WiFi must be working from this time.
Proceed to next step to configure the WiFi SSID (Name) and Pasword.

Step 2: Connect the WiFi Router to your Computer or Laptop

Connect WiFi Router to your PC or Laptop using Patch Cord or LAN Cable. Cable should be connected to the WiFi Router’s Lan Port and other side connected to the your PC or Laptop  Lan Port.

 

Step 3: Get the WiFi Router’s Web Management Details

To get the credentials of your Router’s Web Management, see the manual of the router or check at the back of the router:

My router doesn’t have credentials, and only tells me to access the management by typing http://tendawifi.com but on other wifi routers there should be Username and Password. If there are no Link printed on your router, then we need to get the Gateway IP Address assigned to your Laptop or Computer, to get this follow the steps below:

Right Click the Computer Icon on the Tray Bar then Click “Open Network and Sharing Center”:

Click the Local Area Connection X:

Click “Details”:

Network Connection Details will prompt, and get the IPv4 Default Gateway IP Address.
(In this example Gateway Address was 192.168.2.1)

Step 4: Access the WiFi Router’s Web Management 

Open your favorite Browser, type your  Gateway IP Address, then enter credentials (Username/Password) if needed. My Gateway IP Address was 20.20.20.1:

Note: My Management by default doesn’t have security login (username & password), it is recommended to add/change the security login details to avoid other person to access and modify your router without your knowledge.

Step 5: Access the Wireless Settings

Click the Wireless Settings on the navigation or related to wireless configuration:

Step 6: Provide WiFi Details

Enter details for WiFi Name or SSID Name, Security Mode, and Wifi Password. If your WiFi Router does have 5G Network, do the same entry from 2G or change the WiFi Name then Click OK or Apply Changes, your Wifi router might reboot to apply the changes
Note:  2.4GHz is very common on old and new devices, only latest devices has 5G so make sure to make 2.4Ghz Network enabled.
