SmartRG SR501: Setup

WHAT YOU NEED BEFORE YOU BEGIN:

  • Your SmartRG SR501 modem and your router (if you are using one), plugged in and powered on
  • A computer or other device with internet browsing software installed – Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, and Safari, are typical examples.
  • A connection between your device and the SmartRG SR501 - We recommend doing this by connecting an Ethernet cord from your device to the LAN port on the back of the SmartRG SR501, but you can also do this using the WiFi of your router if you have no other options.
