Re: 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).

I need to reset the password on my linksys Wireless GBroadband router WRT 54G without ruining my wireless set up in my house!

Use an Ethernet cable to connect your computer directly to the router.
Access the web-server "inside" the router.
Login to the router, with the current ID/password.
View the wireless settings:
* encryption-level ('WPA' or better, please)
* network password

and change it, if you need to.

But if you have already configured the modem and it does work.
All you need to do is plug an ether net cable from that to the 'Uplink' port on the back of the WRT router.

After that it should serve that conection out to the machines that are cabled to it. The other machines that you will connect wirelessly can be done through the web interface to the WRT. Which will appear at
