1 - Connect your router to your modem.
2 - Connect your notebook to the router. This is temporary, until you get wi-fi set up in the router.
3 - Start up a web browser, and type in the address 192.168.1.1 - this will access the web setup interface of the unit. Leave the name field blank, and type "admin" for the password (you should change this, once you have it configured).
4 - Setup the internet, etc, and make sure it's working.
5 - Go into wi-fi settings, and create an SSID (essentially, this is what the unit will be called). It probably already says "linksys" in that field. Change it, then create a key (it's a password) for your wireless network.
6 - Save your settings, then disconnect your notebook from the router. Reboot the router.
7 - Make sure you have wi-fi activated on your notebook. Some do this automatically, some don't. It should "see" your network, with the name you gave it during setup. Click on it to connect, and you'll be prompted to enter the password you assigned during setup.
8 - Go surf wirelessly.

Cheers

Our access point linksys model wrt350nver2 doesnt connect with our loptops


Make sure that you have all the correct wireless settings of your network.
You can also try creating a new wireless network and then connect to the new wireless network.
Connect the computer to the router and open the setup page. Change the wireless network name and then connect to the new wireless network on your laptop.

If that is also not working then you can try to reset linksys router and reconfigure it.

Linksys wireless router isn't working


What is the Operating system on the laptop ?
If it is XP then in the bottom right hand corner you will find Wireless network connection ( looks like 1 computer monitor). Use that icon to connect to the wireless network.
If it is windows Vista, then in the bottom right hand corner you will find 2 computer monitor icon. Use that icon to connect to the wireless network.
If it is Windows 98/ME/2000 then use the adapter utility to connect to the wireless network.
For MAC you will see the AIRPORT icon at the top.

Check the wireless settings of the router first . Make sure that you have all the wireless settings of the router. If you are not sure about the settings, then open the router set up and check the settings.

Hey, need help here. Got linksys wireless-g


the great thing about the linksys brand is that they are owned by cisco and they will walk you thru the set up no matter when and where you bought that thing and they will spend all the time it takes to make you happy with the product. although the person you speak to will be in "new deli" india so they may need to repeat them selves many times.
have you tried access the router interface page with the computer hook directly to the router NOT wirelessly.???
I think I remember the linksys access page is at 10.10.10.100 in your internet explorer tool bar.
