Question about Routers
I am having Data One connection, I am not able to enter in (192.168.1.1) in order to set up my wireless connection
Need more info. How are you connected to the router? If you are using ethernet without a router you have to use a crossover cable. Also you have to make sure the IP on your computer is set to the same range as the router. (ex. 192.168.1.2) with the 192.168.1.1 router address and make sure your subnet mask is 255.255.255.0

Tips for a great answer:
wireless network is comprised of a wireless router, a computer (or
other wireless-enabled devices), a high-speed modem, and a subscription
to an Internet Service Provider (ISP). Netgear is a popular
manufacturer of wireless networking hardware that allows users to set
up a secured wireless network. In order to prevent unauthorized users
from logging onto your wireless network to gain access the Internet,
and in order to protect the data you transmit and receive online, you
should change your wireless router's security settings to create a
secured wireless network.
1 Install the router. To install a Netgear wireless router, use an Ethernet cable to connect the router to the cable/DSL modem and use another Ethernet cable to connect the router to your computer. Make sure all of these devices are powered off as you connect them. Once connected, turn on the cable/DSL modem, the router, then the computer, in that order. Allow at least two minutes to pass after turning on each device to give the devices time to recognize one another
2 Log in to the router. Open a web browser and type in the router's address to load the router's settings page. The router's address can be found in the user guide or setup CD that came with your router, or you can download a user guide from Netgear's technical support page (see Resources). Most Netgear routers use one of the following addresses: http://192.168.1.1; http://www.routerlogin.net; or http://www.routerlogin.com. Press "Enter" or click "Go" in your web browser after you have entered the address.
3 Enter the router's username and password. A prompt will appear on the screen when you enter your router's address, requiring you to enter a username and password before you can access the router's settings page. The default username for Netgear routers is "username" and the password is "password." Because the textboxes are case-sensitive, you must enter both of these using all lowercase letters. Press "Enter" to log in to the router and begin changing its security settings.
4 Open the security settings menu. The router's home page has multiple links for changing settings. Find and click the "Security Settings" link to change the router's security settings.
5 Change the SSID, choose an encryption setting and create a password. The default name (or "SSID") of your wireless network will be "NETGEAR." Enter a new, memorable name for your wireless network to help detract would-be hackers from trying to access your router, as most novice computer users with unsecure networks do not know how to change the default network name or institute any other security features. Newer Netgear routers offer WPA or WPA-PSK encryption to secure your network, both of which provide high levels of security. Select either of these. encryption types and create a unique password. This will require all users to enter the password before they can log in to your wireless network. It is important that you create a complex password that has several characters, including numbers. Once you have created a password, click "Confirm Password" to save it. To exit the security settings menu and log off of the router, click "Save" or "Apply" to save the changes you made, then click "Logout" to exit the route

* Netgear wireless router

I would recommend that you connect to the router via a cable
to complete the following set up, otherwise you will lose wireless connection
during the process and this complicates things and takes longer.
1 Open a web Browser and type 192.168.2.1 in the web address
bar and press "Enter".
2 In the newly opened Authentication box type in the user
name and password. The default is Username admin Password 1234. Click the OK
3 Click the General Setup Button.
4 Click the Wireless Button.
5 Ensure that wireless is enabled at the top of the box and select
the security settings option and click next.
6 In the WDS security settings Box set the dropdown to WPA pre-share
7 Select WPA (TKIP) and Passphrase
8 enter your phrase in the pre-share key box and click apply
9 when connecting wirelessly you will be asked for your
passphrase in order to connect.
You are now secure.
