With the help of Remote Access, a user can access his Netgear router remotely over the Internet to view or bring changes in the settings of the router. To remotely access the Netgear router, a user must know the WAN IP address of the device. During the configuration of the Remote Access, make sure to change the admin password to secure the password. The password you assign must contain a lowercase, uppercase, numbers, symbols, and 30 characters. You can enable and configure the Remote Access using the web interface of the routerlogin.net window.
A user can directly block services from the Internet using the Block services option of the routerlogin.net interface. It will automatically turn off the network usage and will not allow any nearby devices within the range of a network to access the Internet from it. For example- If a user is going out of town for a couple of days, he can activate the block services option to save the Internet bandwidth from usage. You also have the option of blocking the services of the Internet either for “Always” or “per schedule” option.

It enables your router to use the same wireless settings including the Network name and Wi-fi password to your main network.
