1. Disconnect power from your modem and router
2. Connect an ethernet cord from your modem's ethernet port to your router's Internet or WAN port.
3. Connect another ethernet cord from a port on your router (labeled with a "1" above it).
4. Connect power to your modem and router.
5. I'm a little unsure about how you plan to connect your wireless computer to the router. The router you selected when you created this question is not wireless-capable.

If your router is wireless-capable, go to the wireless computer. Follow the instructions for your operating system below.

Windows XP

1. Right-click on the My Network Places icon on your desktop, and select Properties.
2. Right-click on Wireless Network Connection.
3. Right-click on View Available Wireless Networks.
4. Double-click on your network from the list that appears (it should be called "linksys" if you didn't change the name).


Windows Vista

1. Click on the network icon on the lower-right of your screen (it should look like two computers with one behind another. It might have a red "X" over it.)
2. Click "Connect to a network" (it also might be labeled "Connect or disconnect")
3. Double-click on your network from the list (it should be called "linksys" if you didn't change the name.

Mac OS X

1. Click on the AirPort menu in the upper right of your screen (it looks like "("s turned on their side).
2. Click on your network in the list that appears (it should be called "linksys" if you didn't change the name).

Order NoVAB46113535 Ref Serial No VJDFRRC2C4YQ Dear Sir. My Subscriptions to Norton Internet Security [3 user] was renewed on February 22nd 2010. Can you please inform me of the 3 user statement does this...


As i researched the 3 user subscription refers to max 3 pcs per house. There shouldn't be extra payment and I strongly suggest to contact Norton directly and ask for refund or explanation. I also suggest that you must not let anyone link automatically to your bank account and charge you. Do your purchases one by one. I hope you are not scammed through email! Hope that helped!!

Can't get internet connection to my lap top.ps i have a desk top.


Is your laptop wireless adapter correctly configured? It may be set to only recieve certain types of signals (802.11b, when you may beed 802.11g etc), so check if the configuration of the laptop matches the configuration of the router.

To test if the laptop can get internet at all, try to get to a wired internet line (your wireless router may have some Ethernet ports on the back; laptops usually have Ethernet connectivity), just incase your laptop is set to block all internet signals coming in.

Hope this helps!

Capture portal software


What you are discussing here is called a "WiFi Hotspot" and isn't platform specific for people wishing to connect (so from the point of view of people connecting to your wireless network, it doesn't matter if you're running Windows or Linux).

A quick google search reveals a number of vendors, including http://www.hotspotsystem.com/ who have a variety of types of software for creating wifi hotspots.
