Suggest Edits
  1. Prepare the Network
  • Purchase and setup a wireless broadband router by interfacing it with your wired computer. Choose a router that is compatible with your broadband modem and that supports the wireless network type you desire.
  • Enable WPA or WPA-2 security, and change your router's default password. Give your SSID or wireless network a memorable name.
  • Connect your modem to the WAN (wide area network) port on your router.

  1. Install an Internal Card
  • Purchase a wireless network card that is compatible with the router you purchased and with your computer. For example, if you bought a 802.11 b/g router, do not purchase an 802.11 n adapter.
  • Shut down your computer. Remove all cables and peripheral devices.
  • Remove the left side panel while facing the front of the case. You may need to remove screws or to manipulate latches and notches. Consult your case or computer manufacturer's documentation if you are unsure of how to remove the panel.
  • Clip the metal part of the anti-static wrist bracelet to a metal object, and ******** the bracelet.
  • Locate an available PCI or PCI-Express slot. Unscrew the screw that secures the slot cover that corresponds with the slot, then remove the slot cover.
  • Line up the wireless adapter's pins with the slot. Insert the card until it clicks into place. Do not force the card into the slot, or you may damage the card's connectors. If you feel resistance, remove the card, line up the card with the slot again, and reinsert.
  • Secure the card with the slot cover screw. Reattach the side panel, and replace any screws you removed earlier.
  • Reinsert all cables, and plug in all peripherals. Boot the computer.
  • Allow Windows the opportunity to detect the card. It should automatically install the drivers for the card. If you have updated drivers, insert the disk and install according to on-screen instructions.
  1. Install an External Card
  • Boot up your computer.
  • Insert your external wireless adapter into the appropriate slot. For example, if you purchased a USB slot, insert it into a USB port.
  • Allow Windows the opportunity to detect the card. It should automatically install the drivers for the card. If you have updated drivers, insert the disk and install according to on-screen instructions
  • Complete Setup
  • Double-click the network icon in the task bar.
  • Highlight your wireless network. Windows will display the name you entered when setting up your router
  • Click the "Connect" button.
  • Enter and verify the security key you created when setting up the router. Click on "Connect."
If you have further query then try to let me know. Thanks for using FixYa.

I've had a new laptop but require my security key, model WBMR-G54 to access the security enabled network, from my old laptop.

If you've forgotten the wireless security key you entered when you set up the router you can reset it by connecting to the router directly with an ethernet cable instead of the wi-fi. Plug a cable into the router and then laptop and access the setup page for the router. See the manual (or download one from the buffalo site) for setup instructions.

Can only get a 10 meg when connected via cable to srx 200

The speed of your wireless adapter maybe up to 54 Mpbs only, check the wireless adapter that you have if it is 802.11 G its set to 54 Mbps only however if your using 802.11 N the speed of the adapter is around 300 mbps of connection.

There's a settings on the router that you can lock WAN port speed to around 10/100/1000

Note: To have a 300 Mbps of connection you should set the wireless settings of the router to WPA2 and AES with bandwidth of auto 20/40

Wireless router

hi frank its a new thing to have to go out and decide what router to purchase and install i use a linksys and have had good luck with the wireless connection quality . does his laptop have a wireless lan card installed most new laptops do have one but its worth a look to make shure it does. depending on how much you want to spend how far away does his laptop sit from location of router ? if not more than 10 ft go ahead and purchase a cheaper one 60.00 now if you want a better quality one go with the twin antenna linksys for about 130,00 and please make shure that he installs the security software that comes with the router and make a password and secure it for shure .i hope ive helped you decide on what router to purchase they all work fairley good .
as far as how they work they are all plug and play install the cd software first then follow instructions carefully and set up is 10 minutes away good luck by for now

Wireless router installation

Please see my response to this question. Your university's connection is most probably a LAN connection, so you'd need to follow the instructions as if you had a cable internet connection (unlike DSL, a LAN connection and cable internet connection don't require authentication with the ISP).
