How to Install Netgear R7000 WiFi Router

Installing a wireless router is generally much easier than setting up a new modem since you do not need to contact your internet service provider to get it set up. There is one exception to this: if you are currently renting a router from your provider, you’ll need to let them know that you’ve replaced it with one that you own so they can remove the rental from your account/bill.

  1. First, unbox your new R7000 router and plug it in to the power cable that it came with, plugging the other end of the power cable into the wall outlet.
  2. Next, wait a few minutes for your wireless router to boot up. You’ll know it’s finished when you see the WiFi light(s) come on on the front of the device.
  3. After your device is finished booting up, you can now connect to the wireless network or networks using the default WiFi password printed on the stickers on the back or bottom of your router.
    • You’ll be looking for the “SSID” or “Network Name” printed on your router as the WiFi name. This should show up in your wireless networks list on your WiFi-enabled device.
    • The WiFi password will also be printed on that same sticker on the back or bottom of your device. The WiFi password is usually referred to as the “Key/Passphrase” or the “pre-shared key” or some other variation of that. Please note that the password is case-sensitive, so be careful as you enter it to ensure it’s accurate!
  4. You can now enter the WiFi password discussed in step 3 to log into the wireless of your new router!
  5. Final step for installing your router is connecting it to your cable or DSL modem. All you need to do next is connect an ethernet cable going from one of the ports in the back of your modem into the WAN (grey) port on the back of your WiFi router. This will allow you to use the wireless connection of your WiFi router to access the internet.

Congratulations on connecting your new wireless router to your network!


Tips If You’re Having Trouble Getting Connected

I can’t find the WiFi network name printed on my device in my available networks list.

Try doing a factory reset on your wireless router! Depending on where you purchased your router or what firmware has been loaded onto it, it may just need a reset to get the network name back to the factory default that’s printed on that sticker.

To reset your device, just hold down the reset button found on the back near all the ports for about 30 seconds, then allow 2-3 minutes for your router to reboot and reset itself.

I can get the wireless connected but there is no internet connection.

Your best bet is to check that the cables are all connected securely and that there’s no damage or issues with the cables hooking everything together. If that does not fix the problem, you’ll need to contact your internet service provider to see if there is any issue they can see on their end.

My WiFi password is not working.

If the default wireless password printed on the bottom sticker of your router is not working to access the WiFi, the easiest way to fix this would be to do a factory reset on your router. You can easily do this by pressing and holding the reset button on the back of the device for 30 seconds and then allowing 2-3 minutes for your router to reboot. After the wireless lights come back on, you can then try again with the default WiFi password.
