To restart your home router, here are the step-by-step guidelines that you need to follow:

  • Power off your device after unplugging it from the wall socket.
  • Let your Netgear WiFi router take a nap for a minute or so.

Have you been using a WiFi source to connect your Netgear N600 router and modem. Perhaps, that’s where you went through. Surely, there isn’t anything wrong with connecting your devices with a WiFi source. 

However, using a cable is considered a more friendly option when it comes to creating a connection between devices. Thus, make use of a cable to connect your N600 router with the existing modem. 

  1. Try to Log into the Router in the Incognito Window
