If you have a router that needs the WiFi setup and don’t have a computer than there are other options.
Any mobile device such as a smartphone or tablet can be used to setup a router.
Be sure to have your router default system admin login information.
Every router has a default username and password to log into the admin panel. It will be in the manual it came with.
If you don’t have the username and password Google the model number of the router for it, as it will be needed.
