Make sure that the blue light is on for the wireless connection! It should be near the top of the keyboard. It will have a symbol that looks like an upside down exclamation point surrounded by two sets of parentheses. Sorta like this: ((!)) only the exclamation point is upside down.

Hopefully you have set up the wireless network, the name of the wireless and any protection that is needed on it.
On the laptop make sure you can see the wireless router on list of wireless points.
Double click on that then type the correct password.
That should be connected to the router and that should be all.

Are you trying to connect a wireless capable device to a wireless connection?

If Yes of if unsure, to connect a WiFi capable device to a wireless connection you will need the following: a cable modem, a wireless router, Ethernet, a WiFi capable device.

Cannot complete setup

Did you set new admin password in your setup? If not, just type user: admin and 'blank' password (do not fill the password. If yes, and you can't log in using your new admin password, try to reset your router with push reset button (small black button in the back side of router). Follow the reset procedure that found in the manual.

Add additional laptop on wireless router

i assume that you want to connect the new laptop wirelessly to the router. if so, all you need to do is connect the new laptop to the wireless signal of your your router.
follow the steps below if you don't know your router's wireless settings.

- access the router's setup page by typing (which is the default ip address of the routre), then you will be prompted with a log in screen. leave the username blank and type "admin" on the password filed
- you will now be prompted with a linksys screen. if you are using the latest firmware of the router, there would be a "wireless" tab, click on that tab and it'll show you the wireless settings (i.e. ssid, wireless channel etc) and under the "wireless" tab is a subtab that'll say "wireless security" and it'll provide you your wireless password if you have enabled one. but if you are using the old firmware, the wireless settings would be located on the middle part of the setup tab
- if you have all the wireless settings needed, you just need to connect your laptop using those settings. you just need to make sure that the wireless capability of your laptop is enabled

hope this'll help you but if you still encounters any problem just ask me and kindly provide the wireless adapter being used and the OS of your laptop.

Does your wireless router supply DNS addresses via DHCP or are they configured into the wireless adapter on the other computer? If the DNS addresses are configured into the working laptop's wireless adapter and not the router -- they may need to be configured into the wireless adapter of the new laptop. Is there a proxy server configured into the browser of the new machine that should not be there or does not match the working machine? Is the new laptop statically configured to an inappropriate IP address or gateway or DNS servers for the network you are attempting to use it on.
