Connect the WAX204 Sample connections WiFi client Internet Modem 1. Unplug the modem’s power, leaving the modem connected to the wall jack for your Internet service. (If the modem uses a battery backup, remove the battery.) 2. Connect the Ethernet cable to the yellow Internet port on the WAX204. 3. Connect the other end of the cable to a LAN port on your modem. 4. Plug in and turn on the modem. (If the modem uses a battery backup, put the battery back in before you turn on the modem.) 5. Power on the WAX204 and check that the LEDs are lit. Step 2. Join the default WiFi network The default WiFi network name (SSID) is “NETGEARXXXXXX”, where XXXXXX represents the last 6 characters of the device’s MAC Address, as printed on the WAX204 label. By default, the WAX204’s WiFi network provides WPA2 security. A randomly generated unique WiFi password is printed on a label on the device. We recommend that you change the WiFi password to a more secure password for the default SSID and for the two other SSIDs. For more information, see the user manual. To connect your WiFi device to the WAX204’s WiFi network, you can use either the manual method or the Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) method. Join the WiFi network using the manual method 1. Open the software utility that manages your WiFi connections on the WiFi device that you want to connect to the WAX204. This utility scans for all WiFi networks in your area. 2. Find and select the WAX204’s WiFi network name (SSID) and connect to its WiFi network. The default WiFi network name (SSID) is “NETGEARXXXXXX”, where XXXXXX represents the last 6 characters of the device’s MAC Address. Enter the default passphrase printed on the WAX204 label. Join the WiFi network using the WPS method The WAX204’s WPS button is on the back panel. If your computer or mobile device supports WPS, you can use WPS to join the WAX204’s WiFi network. See the instructions or online help for your computer or mobile device. Step 3. Log in to the WAX204 1. Launch a web browser and enter routerlogin.net in the address field. The Smart Setup Wizard starts. 2. Follow the Smart Setup Wizard prompts. 3. During the setup process, you are required to set a new admin password for local login.
