    These instructions are spot on and should work.

    But be warned I've had a HG520b that worked fine with wireless for just under a month then it died!! Surfed the forums, but for some reason the "Wireless Lan" option under basic has disappear altogether from the router settings? Hence the reason my wireless died. Now I need to speak with Talk Talk to organise a replacement...?!

You need to follow the below steps to enable you to go wireless, connect your PC and Router via the Ethernet cable.

1. Open any web browser and in the address bar type 192.168.1.1 and press Enter.
2. You will now get a login screen appear, the username and password to access the router is " admin "
3. Click on Basic then Wireless LAN.
4. Make sure Access Point is set to enable.
5. SSID is your Network name and can be changed to anything you like.
6. Make sure Broadcast SSID is enabled.
7. Set Authentication type to WPA
8. Set a password in the Pre-Shared key section between 8-64 letters/numbers long-this is your wireless password, keep this safe as only you have access to this password.
9. Click submit at the bottom of the page.

Your router has now been setup for wireless and is protected by WPA security.

To Allow your PC to connect wireless:

1. Remove your ethernet cable and turn on your wireless on your PC.
2. In the bottom right hand corner of your PC right click on your wireless icon and select "view wireless networks in range"
3. You should see your wireless connection because the SSID should be displayed.
4. Right click on your network and enter the wireless password and then click connect (If right clicking brings up no options then double left click).
5. You should now be connected in a wireless state.

To Allow your MAC to connect wireless:

Please first update the MAC, click the apple top right and update software.

1. Remove your ethernet cable and turn on your wireless on your MAC.
2. Top right click on the airport icon.
3. You should see your wireless connection because the SSID should be displayed.
4. Click on your network and enter the WPA password and then click connect.
5. You should now be connected in a wireless state and the airport icon will turn black.

If you have not yet entered your ppp details (username and password for internet connection) select basic and then wan settings you can change all the settings for your connection here

Hope this helps

Cycle both, meaning turn both wireless radios off then on, which might mean unplug the router and reboot the laptop. Try again. If nothing, make sure the router is set to broadcast the SSID by going to 192.168.1.1 and using the web interface to the router. Check those other settings and make sure your wireless is enabled and all. Also, Vista likes to corrupt wireless settings, so if the connection is already saved, remove it from Vista's wireless list of preferred networks and start again from scratch.

We have BT broadband. When we occasionally have to reset the router, everything except the 2 Dell Dimension 5150 desktops works via wireless. They refuse to reconnect. All the other Desktops / laptops work...


Not sure exactly what your hardware setup is, but I would reboot the broadband router, then reboot the wireless router. Everything should come up clean, but give it at least 5 min. To help connect after reboots, you can choose "repair" from the wireless icon in the system tray (XP?) or renew your IP address. Start --> Run... and type ipconfig /renew

Hope this helps!
If so, please leave a rating!

You have to setup your router for wireless access. Then setup your laptop to find your router and connect. Refer to your router manual and it will tell you how to do this. It's pretty easy just diff for each router.

Have you accessed and setup your wireless part of the modem?

To access the router settings menu, you will first need to log into the Wireless router following the steps below:

You will be prompted to enter a Username and Password to access the interface, please use the following default details:
Username: This can be found on the bottom of the router
Password: This can be found on the bottom of the router

From the list on the left hand side, click on ‘Router Status’.
Within the Router Status section there are two areas you will be able to access:

Show Statistics
Connection Status

The Router Status page gives you a detailed status overview of the connection configured on the Wireless router.
Click ‘Connection Status’ to see more information on the broadband connection.
If you have already configured your broadband, you are able to establish/terminate the connection by clicking Connect/Disconnect.
You can also click ‘Show Statistics’ to show you current connection speed and more information on your Broadband connection.
Clicking on Basic Settings enables you to check all the Internet settings of your Broadband connection. Including the Login name (username) and password, IP address and type of connection.
Clicking on ‘Test’ will perform a standard check of your Internet connection and settings.
ADSL SETTINGS
The ‘ADSL Settings’ section provides you with some more information about your Internet connection. These are:

Region Europe(default)
Channel 11(default)
Mode g&b(default)
Enable Wireless Access point
