You get an ethernet cable, its usually bright yellow or blue, and connect one end into the netopia where it says 1, 2, 3 or 4 (these are your 4 ports, you can hook up to 4 computers individually from here).

Put the DSL line into where it says DSL in the back and make sure you have a filter on the phone line, and any other phone or fax line in the house thats on that same number.

Make sure the power is plugged in and turn it on.

The lights blink for a few minutes until the router, the netopia, syncronizes.

You can access the router by opening internet explorer. It will say page cannot be displayed. Go up to the address bar where you type www stuff and type 192.168.1.254 and hit enter.

You get a little pop up window asking you for username and password. The username is admin. The password is the serial number off the bottom on the netopia.

Once you're in, click on configure at the top, then quickstart.

Put in your user id like spincycleus@sbcglobal.net and your password to your member ID.

click submit at the bottom, then the yellow triangle dealie at the top right. Then click on save and restart the database. When you get the pop up window again, it means you can sign in or just go to yahoo to see of you're online, you should be online.

To connect, you just need to have a crossover cable with RJ-45 at the end.

How to install router from one computer to another?


Once the router is configured properly for internet connection and one computer can get online, then all you have to do is to connect the other computer to the router. No need to make other configurations for the second computer unless the other computer is going to connect wirelessly.

If you need assistance regarding connecting the second computer wirelessly, just let me know. Indicate the brand and model of the router, operating system of the computer and wireless adapter.

Adding a wired computer or device to the network.

If you router is already set up and you want to add a new computer, you don't need to run the set up CD for the router again.
If you are adding a desktop or any other device to the router which will always be connected to the router with the Ethernet cable, then in this case you don't need to do anything.
You can just connect the Ethernet cable between the router and the computer and it should work.
If you are not able to go online even when it is connected properly then check IP address of the computer.

Adding a wireless computer or device to the network.

If you router is already set up and you want to add a new computer, you don't need to run the set up CD for the router again.
If you want to add a new wireless device ( laptop or any other wireless device) to the network, then you should know all the wireless settings of the router. What wireless settings do you need to know ?
You should know the wireless network name ( SSID ), wireless channel and the wireless security password
( network key ). Once you get all the wireless settings of the router , you will need to connect to the wireless network on the computer. when you try to connect to the network , you will see your wireless network in the list. You just need to select your network and connect to it. If it is secured then you will need to enter the network key and you will be able to go online.
To check the wireless settings of the router , you will need to access the router set up page. On the set up page you will find all the wireless settings of the router.

Set up


No. You do not need to have a computer connected via a CAT5 (Ethernet) cable to the router for a laptop to access the wireless signal.

However, to set up the router to broadcast that wireless signal or to alter some of the wireless security settings you will have to connect directly to the router with a CAT5 (Ethernet) cable.

If you need assistance connecting to that wireless connection, let me know. I have some instructions which can help retrieve the security information from the router so you can connect to the Internet via the wireless signal.

Wireless Router Configuration


Double check that your modem has more than just a usb port on it. There should be a network port on it too. Simply connect a network cable for the modem to the WAN port on the router and then from the router to the computer.

I have never seen a modem with only usb on it. Let me know if this helps.
