Corporate mixing and mingling aboard the Captain Matthew Flinders

Corporate entertaining blurs the lines between 9-5 client relationships, and provides companies with a competitive advantage among competitors. When thinking about your providers – whether they be your accountant, friendly neighborhood delivery service or financial advisor, who stands out the most? Is it the one who sends you a card at Christmas, calls on your birthday and asks about your weekend? Many will answer yes to all of the above! Relationship building not only strengthens ties with family and friends, it allows you to create a trusting bond with your service providers as well! While small touches go a long way, they’re easily replicated, and quickly become the status quo. Are you looking to maintain your client relationships, or make new ones? Why not try a unique idea to really blow them out of the water? Why not bring them on board a Mariposa Cruise! (more…)

Netgear Router Login – How to Login Netgear Wireless Router ?

Netgear Router Login: Routers are very common today in households and office spaces, but sometimes it can get cumbersome to set up your new router and log in safely. It could also be that there are some login issues with your existing router which you look forward to curbing.

Sometimes, people do not follow the instructions diligently which may lead to errors. Hence, we request that you spend some quality time in the setup and mediacom router login as any glitch in the process can attract safety and security issues.

NETGEAR ROUTER LOGIN – HOW TO LOGIN TO NETGEAR ROUTER?

• Look for the sticker on the router which contains all the default login information. Almost all Netgear routers come with a label which includes default access address along with username and password.

• Then, open any internet browser (Firefox, Chrome, Explorer, etc.) on your computer and move

• If the above URL fails to pop up any field for login details, try and navigate to http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.1.1.

• If the problem is still unsolved, connect the router with the computer using an Ethernet cable which will establish a direct connection.

• For the username enter “admin” and for password enter “password” as the answers which are the default details for Netgear routers unless otherwise specified.

• Click OK and proceed, and your login is complete.

• After your login is successful, go for the “Smart Setup” option. The setup wizard shall ask for a confirmation, to which you need to select “yes” and then the “next” button. To save all these configurations for your Netgear router, click on save.

• To check the connectivity of your router, click on “maintenance” option and then “Router status”.

BUT, WHAT IF DEFAULT USERNAME AND PASSWORD DO NOT WORK? DON’T WORRY, JUST FOLLOW THE STEPS.

• Reset the router. This will bring back the router to original factory settings and also set it to the default username and password. First, switch on the router and find the rest factory settings button at the backside. Press that button for at least 7-10 seconds till the power light starts blinking. Release the button which will restart the router, and the power light will go from blinking state to full green or white state. Now, repeat the initial steps explained previously and login smoothly.

• Try using a different Ethernet port or cable on the if login still fails to work. A lot of the times, faulty Ethernet cables prevent changes in settings.

• If the problem still persists and you are not able to access the admin page, try and change the IP address of your computer. Sometimes acquiring a new IP address can help in establishing a proper connection between your computer and the router. There are various online guides available on how to change your IP address for Windows as well as Mac OS.

• If all of the above fail to work, disable the pop-up blockers and firewall issues. There are times when these can cause a nuisance while logging in to your router. The Netgear system uses JavaScript language in their web platforms, pop up blockers and firewalls can prevent on from accessing the login page. Again, there are many helpful guides available which explain in detail how to individually disable firewalls on a computer and disable pop up blockers on the computer for Netgear router login.

If you have properly followed the steps so far, we hope that your problem has been resolved. We have tried to cover as many extreme case scenarios to answer any doubts you may have in mind.
