How do I set up my Netduma router and quickly access it?

You can access your routers interface via any device that has a web browser. The default address is ‘’

See our Quickstart guide: You will also receive a printed quick start guide in the box.

Ideally, your Netduma router is plugged into your current modem or modem / router combo that your internet service provider (ISP) gave you.

The setup is therefore:

Wall – ISP modem / router – Netduma R1

With ALL devices connected to the Netduma R1.

If you have a router that you want / need to continue to use, then the best setup is:

Wall – ISP modem – Netduma R1 – secondary router

If every device is then connected to the Netduma R1 or the secondary router then you will be maximising its potential – which is great. We would recommend putting your secondary router in AP mode (access point) if it has it, you could then use this router exclusively for WiFi devices.

If you instead have the Netduma R1 setup like this:

Wall – ISP modem  – secondary router – Netduma R1

Then not every device will be connected to the Netduma R1 and you will not be maximising its congestion control features. We would not recommend this setup.
