    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

I cannot connect my hg532 wifi range extender to my Echolife wn3000rp router


The HG532 is a broadband router, not wireless range extender.

So it will not connect up with another router.

You need to buy a range extender.

I am trying to connect an ASUS F5VL laptop with a Huawei EchoLife HG520b router but the Atheros AR5007EG adapter is not recognising any wireless networks. I was previously able to install the network...


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.

See the link below.
You should find this page on your router configuration where you can configure which port is open for which computer.
Its virtual server for your router. Look for NAT under Basic settings.
