How can i use internet from wifi

Go to 'Start > Settings > Connections tab > Wi-Fi > Search for Networks'. You phone's Wi-Fi radio will be automatically turned on, and will search for available wireless networks. If, after a while, no network is found (e.g. the network you are trying to connect is hidden, i.e. doesn't broadcast its SSID), tap 'Menu > Add New...' You'll be prompted to fill in the Network name (SSID), and if the nettwork is hidden and/or ad-hoc (device to device). Tap 'Next', and fill in the authentication and encryption types, and the passphrase (if any). Tap 'Next' again, and fill in addtional data (if needed). Then, tap 'Finish'. Select the network you have just created and tap 'Menu > Turn On Wi-Fi'.
After finished, press 'Ok' as many times as needed to take you to the home screen. Launch IE and check if your internet connection is active.
Hope it works for you.
Anyway, please, let me know if you need further informations.
Regards, Carlos

I lost my password and lost the WGT624 installation CD, how can i get the router to work on a new laptop

If you have lost the password to access the router page then you have to reset the router

Ensure that you have all the details regarding your internet connection before resetting the router

If you reset the router you can run the smart setup wizard and get connected by entering correct information in all the pages of the wizard

If you are looking for the wireless password:
Access your router page ( Open Internet Explorer --> Type and enter it--> Login name(default)-admin, Password(default)-password) --> GO to wireless settings,under Wireless settings you will find the wireless password.
