Method 3 – Netgear Nighthawk Ac1900 R7000 Initial Setup And Config

This is a net year wi-fi routers ac 1900 smart wi-fi router and it is the our 7000 so this. Is the router right here we got the antennas installed and what were gonna do here is plug it in. Plug everything in that needs to be plugged in hook it up to the computer and install it and get. It on the internet so we have a functioning network so first lets take a look this is a really.

Nice i like the design of it very pretty basic but its got like the slanting side yeah thats kind. Of cool leds are pretty simple on the back yeah got a reset button got a for lan ports you. Got a internet port thats different than the rest got a usb 2.0 port a power button and the power. In so lets go ahead and get this thing plugged in so we can configure it i always like to. Start with the modem the other end of this line is plugged into my modem in the other room and.

Lets go ahead and plug it into the router of course the modem always goes into the one thats different. Or the internet or lan port so you got all those that are the same and we got this one. Thats different thats yellow and its in a different spot and its labeled internet thats where the modem goes now. The router came with this the yellow cat5 cable were going to use that to hook up to the laptop. Here you can choose any one of these that you like i always choose the first port because number one.

Makes sense for me were going to start with number one you dont have to thats just the way i. Do one of those the other end of this goes into the computer right there nice and satisfying click now. We need the power power comes in right here now for this router in particular but for any router really. If its coming new out of the box you dont really need to do this next step but if you. Bought it like on ebay or got it from a friend or if its if its not a brand new.

Router i recommend restarting or resetting it to factory default that way youre not wrestling with unknown or improper settings. From the beginning so to do that were gonna make use of this little handy reset button there on the. Left and this pin so were gonna go ahead and turn the router on youll see the lights are coming. On so its starting up so as long as this on were gonna go ahead and press this pin into. The reset button two three four five six seven eight nine 10 11 12 13 14 well looks like it.

Might have get already gotten to where its going to go so basically what i do is i look for. The lights to change what looks like they already did so ill let go that or i might not have. Waited long enough for it to lets try it again what im expecting to happen is the lights to change. Lets try it one more time its pressed in 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 twelve. Oh there we go theyre changing so now what were gonna do while were waiting for at the boot up.

Is ill turn it on this way first i want to show you something before we go to the computer. And you turn the router over youll see theres these theres a sticker usually the routers have these stickers on. Them and youll see the mac address in the bottom right hand corner there you see mac 9c3 dcf blah. Blah blah blah thats the mac address of this router so if you previously had a router plugged in and. That was on the internet and youre just simply replacing that router with this one and youre having trouble getting.

It on the internet then you may need to do something called mac spoofing or mac cloning so if thats. The case if youre having trouble getting this online or whatever youre youre gonna want to get that mac address. Off of your old router usually youll find it lavar i just showed you on that sticker on the back. Of the router sometimes itll be on the box like on this one its on the box youll see the. Mac address there in the bottom 9c3 dcf but if you cant find the mac address or if you if.

That confuses you if you just dont feel like doing that thats fine youll just have to call your internet. Service provider and tell them you bought a new router and theyll help you fix it up i cant really. Help you at that point but if you are just upgrading your router or switching to this router then that. Mac address from your old router will be very helpful if you can get it so get that and write. It down like i did i wrote mine down from my old router right here and so we have everything.

Plugged in the router is booting up so lets go over to the computer and teleport right in there once. Youre logged into the computer you want to go to your browser any browser you like you can use chrome. You can use it under the next or you can use edge or whatever browser you like i use edge. That out and of course thin and thats not gonna work as you can see but its possible if youre. Setting it us up for the first time this might this might already work for you you might already be.

On the lydia but if having problems like me were gonna fix it so up here youre gonna go to. Router login net it looks like youre going on the internet but youre really not its just a router trick. To get you to the administrative interface first thing youre going to get is this license agreement and youre gonna. Have to agree then you have this other agreement i agree what next now its going to detect if it. And see if it if you can find another router in the network somewhere so we just gotta wait for.

That to do its thing shouldnt take too long i dont know about you but im not really a fan. Of this interface here like i dont i dont know its just i dont know its just not as pretty. As some of the other ones so were waiting for that to finish anytime now anytime okay so this carina. Says do you want netgear do you need to help yes or no no one to configure the internet connection. Myself or i have longer settings i dont have any saved router settings in this case were gonna go with.

No i want to configure the internet connection myself and when we do this its gonna warn us yeah you. Need to know what youre doing next configuring internet connection requires networking experience are you sure dont worry im here. For you if youre not come if youre not comfortable with this im gonna help you out because all the. Setting theres its really not complicated so were gonna do this lets go ahead and click okay so its going. To ask you to login the default name is admin and the default password is password all lowercase for both.

Okay and this thing and this is for parental controls i just do never remind me again hit skip alright. So at this point it looks like everythings working except were not on the internet and thats the whole problem. Thats what were trying to do so we need to do mac address spoofing again if you dont have the. Mac address if you dont want to do mac address spoofing if youre not comfortable with it if you dont. Have the mac address at this point just call up your isp and say hey i got a new router.

And i need to get it online but if you have your mac address lets do a trick if you. Have you if you have a friend or a family member thats like frustrated because they cant get this router. Online youre gonna come in and save the day and this is what were gonna do were gonna go to. Advanced and then on the left side were going to go to setup and then were going to go to. Internet setup and youre going to scroll all the way to the bottom and it says router mac address now.

If that person who is trying to or if you if you had a computer plugged into a modem and. You didnt have a router at all and thats how you were getting on the internet before then you want. To select this use computer mac address but only if this computer that youre on right now is the computer. That youre using before but for the rest of us we want to enter in our old routers mac address. So we choose use this mac address and we want to replace this you want to get rid of all.

That so now we type this is where we type in our old routers mac address and we need every. After every two characters you put a colon so for me its going to be 0 0 : 1 d. : 7 e : 0 d : E 4 : 4 d thats the mac address from my old router. So were going to go ahead and apply now we just wait for the router to redo the settings and. Then reboot and whatever its gonna do and after this we should be able to get online so all the.

Other settings it was already there there pretty much went to default settings so we didnt really have to change. Anything else so now i just gotta wait right now my internet lights on the router it is still orange. Or amber so i expect that about its about 75% of the way through to turn on a light or. Green or something up there it goes it goes it turned white so now we had a white internet light. So thats good so by the time this thing this bar finishes going across we should be on the internet.

Lets say its about done i just need to wait for it to refresh there it goes now we go. Back up to the basic page and it should say were connected to the internet and then it that is. Good open up a new tab were online so that was pretty simple isnt it its just out a little. That little mac spoofing or mac cloning trick that pretty much is all we had to do other than plugging. Everything in so hopefully that worked for you so lets just go through here and look at the settings im.

The basics type you got internet got all these settings no we could just we could i just went right. There its right here – so if you go to basic and then go to internet you got that mac. Address setting right there that you can change you dont have to go all the way youll have to have. The advanced settings wireless this is where this is your 2.4 gigahertz network settings right here you can change the. Name and heres their password for it to connect to that wi-fi and heres your five gigahertz network you can.

Change the name right there i recommend like here you see net year 31 for the 2.4 gigahertz oh i. Just want to bekir 31 with a 5g so when you name these networks i recommend you name one of. Them so that you know what it is so this one you know its the 5g and this ones not. Because this one says 5g on it because when you look at your when you look at the wi-fi list. Itll show both of these right next to each other and you wont know which ones which unless you tag.

It some power name it completely different so you know if its 2.4 meters or 5 yards so this is. Where you change or what are the settings attached devices quality of service qos parental gentle controls pretty share im. Not a huge fan of this interface um i mean it works thats ok im just i dont know its. Not even that big of a deal yeah im just being picky so advanced at wpsu had a whole bunch. More settings in here your wireless setup again you set up your wireless settings qls device name this is the.

Name of your router usb functions you have a device plug in here you can figure different settings for that. No usb drive administration you can reboot the router right here logs you can change your password this is your. Password for the administrative interface to get to get into this to change the settings update the router advanced setup. Theres all kinds of stuff in here yeah vlans vpns a lot of this stuff you wont really be messing. With unless you know what its for hopefully port forwarding this is what a lot of gamers use in people.

That have servers so they can access the stuff from outside the network you can turn you can change the. Mode of the router into different different modes its static routes remote management all kinds of stuff in a traffic. Meter so this isnt really meant to be a walkthrough of all the settings its just kind of im just. Kind of showing you what the interface is like so we got it online ron google we did mac spoofing. And we got it to work because we used to have a different router that worked and this we had.

To use mac spoofing to get this one online so i hope you enjoyed the video and i hope you. Learned something have a wonderful rest of your day and thank you for watching peace.

Method 4 – Making A Dedicated Vpn Home Router Using A Regular Netgear Router Private Internet Access Pia

Hello everyone richard here again in a previous video i showed you how to turn a tp-link router a stock. Tp-link router into a dedicated vpn router in this video what im going to do and ill put a card. Up for that up here in the corner for you but in this video what im going to do is. Show you how to turn a netgear router into a dedicated vpn router this is the wnr 2000 version 3.

But its running the netgear genie software or firmware which most netgear routers are running which is totally different from. A tp-link routers firmware so im going to show you how to turn this thing from a stock router into. A dedicated vpn router im gonna get this question on this video quite a bit why do i want vpn. And what is vpn anyways alright so lets go through a quick introduction to how the internet connects you to. All these wonderful things out there in the world here we have me im the im the person standing here.

And im at home with the connection to the internet i have an ip address this is the ip address. Lets say im theoretically thats my ip address ok and the ip address is like your phone number it basically. Tells the internet where you are and how to send data when they send data to you like say you. Go to cnn or lets say amazon and you ask for something like i dont know a cat photo it. Well they need to know where to send that and they send it to your ip address ok so the.

Ip address is like your identifier on the internet and when you connect you connect to something called a service. Internet service provider and that could be like time warner or you know sprint or whoever you have so you. Connect through your internet service provider and then they connect you to the internet and then the internet connects you. To whatever you want ok the the this is basic connectivity to the internet the problem with this is this. And ill show you what happens is that everything that you do from this ip address going through this internet.

Service provider time warner whoever and then in out into the the internet is traceable in other words if you. Go to i dont know fbi dot-com then basically your internet service provider contract that youve done that and say. You search for that on google well google can track you and say oh well you know richard it i. Well this whoever is at i p address seven zero four or five one eight to sixteen just looked for. Fbi put that in the database and then they start tracking you right and then when you go from google.

To say amazon amazon goes oh well that person came from google and they came from this internet service provider. Provider in texas and this is their ip address and they track all this stuff and eventually they have a. Huge database about this sort of stuff that you like to do on the internet and then they target your. Advertising to you then when youve wondered how that advertising is so so well targeted well this is a portion. Of it okay theres more to it than that but this is basically saying the internet service provider is tracking.

Every single thing youre looking at on the internet in a log file okay they can see it they can. Say oh she searched for this he searched for that he went here he went there they can see all. Of it and they track it so you know and if the government shows up and says hey show me. Everything that you know richards gone looked at in the last two years they go okay there you go they. Have it okay so there is no expectation of privacy in what youre doing on the internet at all zero.

Okay zero like dont think youre doing anything privately on the internet 0x you know shored up lets say going. To your bank but even then they know what bank youre going to they dont know what youre doing in. Your bank because thats an encrypted connection but they know that you lets say your bank is a bank of. Montreal they know that your bank is that is that bank when you because you have asked to go there. To login so nothing in this communication chain here between you and the internet is private zero okay so lets.

Go next heres the other thing lets say you take your laptop and youre sitting down at your local coffee. Shop on the wi-fi and your get in and youre typing away blah blah blah well the same situation happens. Again you have to call aughh into the coffee shop wi-fi and then from there you go through a service. Provider and then from there you go out into the internet well theres one more step here anybody in this. Coffee shop wi-fi network can actually snoop at what youre doing they can they can look at what youre doing.

They can actually try and break into your laptop and if youre sharing files and and and data to the. Internet from your laptop anybody in this coffee shop wi-fi can look at it too so theres no security there. At all okay so this is where vpn comes in and the whole reason why i have vpn is because. When i travel and i connect to a hotel wi-fi or a coffee shop wi-fi or an airport wi-fi i. Dont want you know i dont want to expose myself to that kind of data breach so this is what.

I do this is what vpn does all right what vpn does is it establishes a secure encrypted connection between. You and the internet okay so this green arrow im gonna it is the is the secure connected vpn connection. And it goes through it connects through the wi-fi at the coffee shop connects through the internet service provider and. Then connects to your private internet access or vpn service which is who i use p ia its what its. Called private internet access and basically what happens here is it creates an encrypted tunnel its so nobody in the.

Coffee shop nobody in the internet service provider nobody until after you go through your vpn service can see where. Youre at you can look at and say oh this guys in you know texas and hes surfing with time. Warner and no none of that happens what happens is you get a private connection all the way to this. Point and this point is the the vpn service provider and the vpn service provider promises that a they dont. Log your ip address b they wont give that information out to anybody and c they wont they dont like.

Let any data go past this point so basically what happens once you go out from the the vpn service. To the internet and they try and trace it back they trace it back to the the the vpn service. And thats as far as it goes its like hey that person surfing from the private internet access in lets. Say virginia thats what i think this is what no i think this is washington anyway it doesnt matter it. Basically stops there and it doesnt go back to you so that gives you that makes you a private that.

Gives you privacy and it makes you private in other words these guys cant trace you back anymore right now. Its not a hundred percent because theres vulnerability and so on and so forth but thats what vpn does it. Secures your your privacy and your in your data connection to the internet against people who could use it in. Nefarious ways okay thats why i like it thats why i use it and what were gonna do today and. Okay just to back this up a little bit on my laptop i have a little client a little connection.

Piece of software that connects me to the vpn service from wherever i am so i connect to wi-fi then. I open up that my client and i connect a vpn and i disappear from those networks altogether because im. Encrypted all the way to the vpn service provider okay but what im gonna do here is show you how. To create that connection in a router all by itself so anything that connects to that router will be automatically. Connected to the vpn service and surfing privately through the internet thats the whole point of having a dedicated vpn.

Router now what you can do with that router is plug it into your current network and then anybody that. Logs into that will be protected from you know any snooping or prior theyll have privacy and a lot more. Security thats why were why im showing you how to do this okay so ill show you how to do. This on a standard router in a simple way well in a simple way but ill walk you through all. The steps and why im doing it and how it works and the whole point will be to have a.

24/7 connected router to your vpn service theres a lot of pluses to this number one like for instance private. Internet access only allows five connections right and you have and by the way this is not a free service. This private vpn service costs money i pay like three dollars and thirty cents a month to have the service. More than happy to pay that money to have the service because it gives me a great deal of security. And peace of mind when im travelling in anymore and im at home but i do have a dedicated vpn.

Router it is my wi-fi router which makes it even more secure for me and it allows me to you. Know browse the internet privately which i like now basically it is a paid for service i use private internet. Access thats whos who theyre called to one of the big i think theyre the biggest vpn service out there. But you know you do your own research on that so thats what vpn is thats how it works and. Thats what were gonna do in this video all right i want to reiterate this for everybody whos watching this.

Video because its very important that none of this will work without this one thing you need a vpn account. Okay now i use private internet access and you can see it here on the screen and its its a. Paid for account its very cheap for me im using the service that costs three dollars and 33 cents a. Month you can go for whatever you want heres the pricing this is the web page and you can see. Up here it tells me my ip address my isp and that im protected by piaa so basically this is.

Really not my ip address this is really not my isp but it i im currently connected to vpn through. My vpn router here right so and you see that its dd-wrt again it doesnt have to be the third-party. Firmware that im using you can use whatever youd like actually you can use the stock firmware in your router. And thats what im going to show you how to do i may do a further video on putting that. Third-party dd-wrt for in your router and using math instead but right now were sticking with the stock stuff so.

Just two plain off-the-shelf router how to configure that to be a dedicated vpn router but once again you need. A paid-for bpn service now you can go with private internet access or you can go with several others i. Just find that these guys are the best so thats who i went with and if you look at the. Bottom you see that all the vpn features you get right but the key feature youre gonna get from them. Is an account you need the username for that account and you need the password for that account in order.

To configure this router to do what its going to do okay so lets move on to that before we. Start configuring the router we need to find out a little bit about your network and this is why because. We need to know where your current router is at in other words one that were going to connect this. Router to we need to know what its ip address is so that we can set up this rat that. The vpn router that were going to connect to it on a different network were going to have two separate.

Networks going to have your home network which is what you currently have right now then were going to have. Your vpn router network which is going to be connected through your home network but not part of your home. Network now the reason for that is number one privacy right its going to be a separate network for vpn. Traffic only number one number two when youre on this if you made both routers part of the same network. What would happen is if the vpn connection to the vpn router dropped then you wouldnt know it it would.

Just keep you it would just take the traffic and go okay well were not going through a vpn anymore. Well just go through your home network and you would be connected to a vpn router thinking that youre on. Vpn and youre not okay so what im going to do is set up the vpn router as a separate. Network that goes through your home network that way when you connect to the vpn router you know youre connected. To the vpn and if that connection drops for any reason whatsoever and youre connected to the vpn router you.

Will no longer surf and youll know when that happens that oh i must have lost my vpn connection for. Some reason okay so and then you troubleshoot that but basically what i wanted to do is isolate the vpn. Network by itself so that a you get that privacy and security number one number two when you if it. Ever drops youll know because it will no longer connect you to the internet so lets go get the information. About your home network right now so that we can set the secondary vpn router dedicated vpn router to a.

Set to a different ip address okay and i will put links for this stuff in the video description below. For you know the hardware and so on and also the configuration that i use to make this happen because. Theres a bunch of numbers and stuff that you need to remember ill put it all in a video description. Below also if you wish to leave me a comment a question or you know even a suggestion again you. Need to put them in the comment section below the video alright so lets go get the information we need.

So over here you see my network icon and then right-click it now im hardwired you may be wi-fi connected. It doesnt matter just right-click it choose open network and internet settings scroll down to network and sharing center click. On that then click on change adapter settings over here this brings you to the network connections page where you. See all your network connections you can you maybe hook you may be connected through wi-fi you may be connected. Through ethernet or you may be connected through both but really what were looking for is whatever connection youre connected.

To your main network to so in my case its wi-fi if if youre either net just do the same. Thing on the ethernet adapter right click it choose choose status okay and then under here go to details click. On details and what were looking for here is right there the ipv4 default gateway now the default gateway is. Generally your network sorry if the ip address of your router so in this case its if you want. Verify that just open up a browser window and put that number into the address bar and you see my.

Login for that router so not dont need to log into it just find out whether its there or not. And so that now i know that my router is .
