2. check lights.
3. on your laptop go to the command prompt. (type cmd on the run window)
4. type ipconfig/all on the black screen

6. open your internet explorer browser then type http://192.168.0.1
7. type admin on the username then password or 1234 on the password box.
8. configure the router for dsl or cable connection. don't forget to save

Loss the setup CD-ROM


A setup CD isn't needed to setup the linksys wireless router.
To connect to your wireless router, the router's wireless settings needs to be configured with the SSID, encryption etc. and also the wireless cards in all the laptops/computers needs to be configured with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.
Connect a LAN cable from the Linksys to the LAN port on your computer.
Open a browser and enter the Linksys configuration URL
http://192.168.1.1
The default login = admin
The default PW = admin
You can protect your router by changing the default admin PW (write it down and put it in a safe place)
Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2 encryption to protect your wireless network and Internet from unauthorized access.
Now apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.

Can I Put my Lynksis Wireless-G 2.4 in my Laptop? Also does anyone know how to fix the back light in this computer?


Routers do not operate on the same frequencies as the old tv bands. So no. To the other questions you won't put a router in a laptop you would use a wireless adapter which 99% of laptops already have. Last question if the back light is out it is most likely the inverter board is bad. These run $40-120 and are fairly high degree of difficult to replace.

Wifi getting connected with new linksys


You need to call Linksys again for them to help you setup the other computer. For the none-working computer, you don't need to run the setup CD for the router. All you need to do is connect to wireless network like what you did on the working laptop.

Wireless - G router


If the Linksys is not yet configured use the desktop to put the CD in and follow instructions to add the Linksys Router to your existing network setup.

Once inside there are a few more steps to getting a desktop PC to see & network with a laptop PC within a router/wireless environment. Once the Linksys is setup you may want to repost something to get the computers talking to each other.

Take care...
