Question about U.S. Robotics MAXg USR5461 (738168036790) Wireless Router

USB Wireless Network Setup Values

Am trying to set up my US Robotics MAXg wireless USB adapter. Using the SureStart Installer I get to a screen that says my selected router or access point has security enabled. Enter the appropriate values. (WPA2, WPA,WEP Open, WEP Shared, or other). I have a Westfall Model 327W Gateway from Verizon. Which value do I select?

After this screen it asks to enter the passphrase or encryption key for the router. Is this the password for the gateway unit?

The value it s asking for is the password you'll need to enter on all your authorized machines to use when asked.

Most common is WEP-Open. It's a 10 character password you can use. You can use the numbers 0-9 and the letters A-F. For example 39cca8f1a4 could be your 'key' or passphrase.

Again, any key you "make up" will have to be known to other computers trying to use that point to access the network and the Internet.

How do i find my network key or create one for security?


Login to your router and check to see if wireless security is setup:
Use Internet Explorer and type 192.168.2.1 in the address bar.
Login using the password you created when you setup the router.

You can view the wireless security settings and retrieve the key.
If security is not setup you can enable it....directions here:

How to connect maxg with a my netgear broadband router


Try to turn off the DHCP server in the secound router, that way it'll be a swich technically, and set the secound router's fix ip address to something different, because I'm quite sure that both routers have the same 192.168.0.1 IP address and that's nogood.
Set it to anyting from 192.168.0.2 to 192.168.0.254

Wireless security to xbox


assuming you mean xbox360, there should be a seperate menu for wireless connections in the network settings, as when it finds the signal it then asks for the keycode security number, but as far as i know the old xbox doesnt support wireless.

Unable to open internet page


let you router allocate the ip addresses manually by enabling DHCP and restart the router,and remove the usb adapter from the usb port and reconnect it, but when you right click on the taskbar on the little pc icons for your connection click enable WZC windows wireless Zero configuration as this will dissable the software you got with the usb adapter and hopefully make the connection more stable, but ensure you have a strong signal.
