How To Setup a Wireless Router Without a Computer

If you have a router that needs the WiFi setup and don’t have a computer than there are other options.

Any mobile device such as a smartphone or tablet can be used to setup a router.

Be sure to have your router default system admin login information.

Every router has a default username and password to log into the admin panel. It will be in the manual it came with.

If you don’t have the username and password Google the model number of the router for it, as it will be needed.

After logging in you will be able to setup your router as you would on a computer.

Something to keep in mind is that all routers have different setup menus. Often these setups will be self explanatory, such as a WiFi wizard. But if you do have problems the manual will be needed to know where the options are.

Most router menu option though are easy to follow.

    I just received a Sonic internet setup however I don’t have a computer I bought it for my smart TV. Then I don’t have any house phone jacks that are working . The only device I have is a Kindle. Do I need a tablet or something or should I return the package. It was a phone and internet package.

    Does this mean that I can use the Internet for my Samsung phone and tablet using a router, even though I do not have a computer or modem? Thank you for your help.

    Actually I am trying to change my Verison security settings and possibly update any firmware . We first used this router with a windows 7 pc that failed and we are on all mostly Apple devices now plus a few cameras .
    iOS instructions would be nice . Step by step to change security from wep to more secure .

    This instructional is completely useless. If you’re not already connected to the router via wifi, none of these steps will work and if you are connected to your network you wouldn’t need instructions on how to connect to your network. POINTLESS.

    You may want to mention that you must already be connected to the network prior to Step 1, which will almost never be the case. You are pretty much assuming someone already set up the router (with no password, or gave you the password) and also didn’t change the default admin password.

      He is talking about setting up the login and password for the network. It is not pointless.
