You have briefed about the hardware or physical connections but not the configuration of the wireless router. On the hardwired computer go RUN, type http://192.168.1.1 (best guess for Linksys' LAN url), then use 'Linksys' as the user name, 'admin' as the password and a web page will appear showing the configuration of wired, wireless, security, status, etc. Make sure that DHCP is selected if you are using cable, PPPoE for DSL or STATIC if you are connected to NORAD and know the IP address :). Regardless of the Layer 1 media you select you can select the STATUS tab, select DHCP then at the bottom of the screen click on the RELEASE button and watch the IP lists go to all zeros. Then click on the RENEW button and when you see real IP adresses appear (sometimes requires a second click) then open a browser. This should enable you to view wireless networks and associated signal strength. Other considerations are in Network settings for the particular NIC where you must ensure that the radio is enabled and that you have A, B, G or N enabled. Also in your firewall settings look at the LAN settings and a bunch of check boxes will be displayed -check them all as well as in the ICMP settings where a bunch more boxes will be displayed and check those. No OS was specified but many parameters can also be determined by going to RUN, type cmd, type ipconfig /all or ipconfig /? for command options. Well there's some food for thought. Enjoy!

The 802.11g is one of the standards for wireless local area network or the WLAN communication. It was ratified in 2003 as the latest in the series of IEEE 802.11 standards. The newest version is an improvement of the 802.11b standard. The 802.11g can handle a maximum capacity of 54 Mbps. This is in comparison to 11 Mbps of the earlier 802.11b. For compatibility with earlier standards, the 802.11g also uses the frequency range of 2.4 GHz. The latest standard is also supporting Ethernet networking exclusively.<br /> Wireless broadband routers 802.11g technologies have higher speed. It is capable of quicker file sharing and printing than the older 802.11b wireless broadband router. The 802.11g router has more computer capacity than the other router technology. Bogging down of the network or the router is avoided even when more computers are loaded to the network.<br /> There is still a newer wireless broadband router technology. The newer version is the 802.11n router standard. This particular wireless broadband router is speedier and has more features than the 802.11g. The most appropriate wireless broadband router for home use is the 802.11g. The reasons for the choice are solid performance, overall capability and affordability of the 802.11g wireless broadband router.<br /> There are several wireless broadband routers available in the market. These routers are sold through the traditional stores located in strategic areas. Purchase of wireless broadband routers can also be done through the online stores easily accessible.<br /> Among the leading brands of wireless broadband routers are the following:<br /> D-Link DI-624 AirPlus Xtreme G - is a device which encompasses the elements of other similar gadgets. It is stated that the router is easy to install and reliable in usage. The WEP and WPA security are supported. The wireless router is functional at 100m signal range.<br /> D-Link is proud in its router because of the five hardware compression technologies. The DI-624 has a three-year limited warranty in the USA.<br /> Netgear WGR614 - is a wireless broadband router representing a tradition in home products.

Customer assistance is available. The owners of the wireless broadband router must be aware of the updates in the routers versions.<br /> Apple M8799LL/A Airport Extreme Base Station - this wireless router is more expensive than its competitors. Macintosh and Windows computers are operational with this router.<br /> SMC SMC2804WBR Barricade - is competitive in terms of features and overall quality. Macintosh, Linux and Windows users are compatible with this router brand. It has two detachable antennas, strong firewall and good signal strength.

Its Easy Install Wizard enables the router to be interconnected with the internet wirelessly in a couple of minutes. The warranty accompanying the product is lifetime.<br /> Buffalo G54 AirStation - is not a well known brand of wireless router in the USA. Difficulties are experienced in its setup interface.

If you have wireless N router. You should install wireless N adapter on your children's computers as well. That way, they are compatible with each other coz I guess your children's PC has wireless G adapters. You wont be able to utilize the N signal of the router if your using wireless adapters..

Wireless Connection


You didn't specify if you're using DSL or Cable internet.

With DSL, keep in mind the software on the PC is what "dials out" to the ISP with your name / password, and you MUST set the name and password in the router. Otherwise, ONLY the computer1.gif that has the software installed (verizon1.gif, etc) will be able to connect.

If you're using a cable connection, you don't have to do this, however, most newer Linksys routers come with a 'setup' disk, which MUST be used regardless of connection type.
