Setting up a Router


Chapter 1: Connecting the Wireless-G Broadband Router

Hardware Installation

1. Locate an optimum location for the Broadband Router. The best place for the Broadband Router is usually at the center of your wireless network, with line of sight to all of your mobile stations.

2. Fix the direction of the antenna. Try to place it in a position that will best cover your wireless network. Normally, the higher you place the antenna, the better the performance will be. The antenna's position
enhances the receiving sensitivity.

3. Connect a standard Ethernet network cable to the Broadband Router’s Internet port. Then, connect the other end of the Ethernet cable to your Cable or DSL Broadband modem.

4. Connect your network PCs or Ethernet devices to one of the Broadband Router’s numbered ports with a standard Ethernet network cable.

5. Connect the AC Power Adapter to the Broadband Router's Power Socket and the other end into an electrical outlet. Only use the power adapter supplied with the Broadband Router. Use of a different adapter may result in product damage.

Chapter 2: Configuring the PCs

Overview

The instructions in this chapter will help you configure each of your computers to be able to communicate with the Router.

To do this, you need to configure your PC’s network settings to obtain an IP (or TCP/ IP) address automatically, so your PC can function as a DHCP client. Computers use IP addresses to communicate with the Router and each other across a network, such as the Internet.

First, find out which Windows operating system your computer is running.

You can find out by clicking the Start button. Read the side panel of the Start menu to find out which operating system your PC is running.

You may need to do this for each computer you are connecting to the Router. The next few pages tell you, step by step, how to configure your network settings based on the type of Windows operating system you are using. Make sure that an Ethernet or wireless adapter (also known as a network adapter) has been successfully installed in each PC you will configure.

Configuring Windows 98 and Millennium PCs

1. Click the Start button. Select Settings and click the Control Panel icon. Double-click the Network icon.

2. On the Configuration tab, select the TCP/ IP line for the applicable Ethernet adapter. Do not choose a TCP/ IP entry whose name mentions DUN, PPPoE, VPN, or AOL. If the word TCP/ IP appears by itself, select that line. Click the Properties button.

3. Click the IP Address tab. Select Obtain an IP address automatically.

4. Now click the Gateway tab, and verify that the Installed Gateway field is blank. Click the OK button.

5. Click the OK button again. Windows may ask you for the original Windows installation disk or additional files. Check for the files at c:windowsoptionscabs, or insert your Windows CD-ROM into your CD-ROM drive and check the correct file location, e.g., D:win98, D:win9x, etc. (if “D” is the letter of your CD-ROM drive).

6. Windows may ask you to restart your PC. Click the Yes button. If Windows does not ask you to restart, restart your computer anyway.

Configuring Windows 2000 PCs

1. Click the Start button. Select Settings and click the Control Panel icon. Double-click the Network and Dial-up Connections icon.

2. Select the Local Area Connection icon for the applicable Ethernet adapter (usually it is the first Local Area Connection listed). Double-click the Local Area Connection. Click the Properties button.

3. Make sure the box next to Internet Protocol (TCP/ IP) is checked. Highlight Internet Protocol (TCP/ IP), and click the Properties button.

4. Select Obtain an IP address automatically. Once the new window appears, click the OK button. Click the OK button again to complete the PC configuration.

5. Restart your computer.

Configuring Windows XP PCs

The following instructions assume you are running Windows XP with the default interface. If you are using the Classic interface (where the icons and menus look like previous Windows versions), please follow the instructions for Windows 2000.

1. Click the Start button and then the Control Panel icon. Click the Network and Internet Connections icon. Then click the Network Connections icon.

2. Select the Local Area Connection icon for the applicable Ethernet adapter (usually it is the first Local Area Connection listed). Double-click the Local Area Connection. Click the Properties button.

3. Make sure the box next to Internet Protocol (TCP/ IP) is checked. Highlight Internet Protocol (TCP/ IP), and click the Properties button.

4. Select Obtain an IP address automatically. Once the new window appears, click the OK button. Click the OK button again to complete the PC configuration.

If you would like more information on setting up your connection, please post your questions and I will surely respond.

Also for any clarification, you can email me at titilayosodipe@live.com

Best regards.

Chapter 1: Connecting the Wireless-G Broadband Router

Hardware Installation

1. Locate an optimum location for the Broadband Router. The best place for the Broadband Router is usually at
the center of your wireless network, with line of sight to all of your mobile stations.
2. Fix the direction of the antenna. Try to place it in a position that will best cover your wireless network.
Normally, the higher you place the antenna, the better the performance will be. The antenna's position
enhances the receiving sensitivity.
3. Connect a standard Ethernet network cable to the Broadband Router’s Internet port. Then, connect the other
end of the Ethernet cable to your Cable or DSL Broadband modem.

4. Connect your network PCs or Ethernet devices to one of the Broadband Router’s numbered ports with a
standard Ethernet network cable.

5. Connect the AC Power Adapter to the Broadband Router's Power Socket and the other end into an electrical
outlet. Only use the power adapter supplied with the Broadband Router. Use of a different adapter may result
in product damage.

Chapter 2: Configuring the PCs

Overview
The instructions in this chapter will help you configure each of your computers to be able to communicate with
the Router.
To do this, you need to configure your PC’s network settings to obtain an IP (or TCP/IP) address automatically, so
your PC can function as a DHCP client. Computers use IP addresses to communicate with the Router and each
other across a network, such as the Internet.
First, find out which Windows operating system your computer is running. You can find out by clicking the Start
button. Read the side panel of the Start menu to find out which operating system your PC is running.
You may need to do this for each computer you are connecting to the Router.
The next few pages tell you, step by step, how to configure your network settings based on the type of Windows
operating system you are using. Make sure that an Ethernet or wireless adapter (also known as a network
adapter) has been successfully installed in each PC you will configure.

Configuring Windows 98 and Millennium PCs

1. Click the Start button. Select Settings and click the Control Panel icon. Double-click the Network icon.
2. On the Configuration tab, select the TCP/IP line for the applicable Ethernet adapter.9641e30.jpg
Do not choose a TCP/IP entry whose name mentions DUN, PPPoE, VPN, or AOL. If the word TCP/IP appears by
itself, select that line. Click the Properties button.
3. Click the IP Address tab. Select Obtain an IP address automatically.a443500.jpg
4. Now click the Gateway tab, and verify that the Installed Gateway field is blank. Click the OK button.
5. Click the OK button again. Windows may ask you for the original Windows installation disk or additional files.
Check for the files at c:\windows\options\cabs, or insert your Windows CD-ROM into your CD-ROM drive and
check the correct file location, e.g., D:\win98, D:\win9x, etc. (if “D” is the letter of your CD-ROM drive).
6. Windows may ask you to restart your PC. Click the Yes button. If Windows does not ask you to restart, restart
your computer anyway.

Configuring Windows 2000 PCs

1. Click the Start button. Select Settings and click the Control Panel icon. Double-click the Network and Dialup
Connections icon.
2. Select the Local Area Connection icon for the applicable Ethernet adapter (usually it is the first Local Area
Connection listed). Double-click the Local Area Connection. Click the Properties button.ea4fa3a.jpg
3. Make sure the box next to Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) is checked. Highlight Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), and click
the Properties button.6cbaf1a.jpg
4. Select Obtain an IP address automatically. Once the new window appears, click the OK button. Click the
OK button again to complete the PC configuration.9297bc0.jpg
5. Restart your computer.

Configuring Windows XP PCs
The following instructions assume you are running Windows XP with the default interface. If you are using the
Classic interface (where the icons and menus look like previous Windows versions), please follow the
instructions for Windows 2000.
1. Click the Start button and then the Control Panel icon. Click the Network and Internet Connections icon.
Then click the Network Connections icon.
2. Select the Local Area Connection icon for the applicable Ethernet adapter (usually it is the first Local Area
Connection listed). Double-click the Local Area Connection. Click the Properties button.f2e300e.jpg
3. Make sure the box next to Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) is checked. Highlight Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), and
click the Properties button.dad0f1c.jpg
4. Select Obtain an IP address automatically.076b379.jpg
Once the new window appears, click the OK
button. Click the OK button again to complete the PC configuration.
