    Hardware Setup for Home:

    1. Make sure that all of your
      hardware is powered off, including the broadband modem and PCs.

    2. Connect your broadband
      modem’s Ethernet cable to the Router’s Internet port

    3. Connect
      one end of an Ethernet network cable to one of the numbered
      ports on the back of the Router

    4. Connect
      the other end to an Ethernet port on a network device, e.g.,
      a PC, print server, or switch{ Repeat this
      step to connect more PCs or other network devices to the Router

    5. Power on the
      broadband modem

    6. Connect
      the included power adapter to the Router’s Power port, and then plug the
      power adapter into an electrical outlet. The Power LED on the front panel
      will light up when the adapter is connected properly.

    7. Power on your PC(s).

    8. Locate
      an optimum location for the Router. The best place for the Router is
      usually at the center of your wireless network, with line of sight to all
      of your wireless devices

    Connection Picture Click..Enter in Browser User Name:Admin,Password:Admin...After Logged in Router .You can Set Security for your WIRELESS tab>wireless Security> Set as you Like for router..

    Linksys recommends using the Setup CD-ROM for
    first-time installation of the Router. You can enter in to Router Set up as I said
    in previous post.

Pls help me i need display driver of dell inspiron 1564 32 bit....thanks

The Dell site says that your Dell Inspiron 1564 is a Win 7 64 bit machine. Why should you want to install 32 bit drivers, beats me. Any way please visit the site
and after selecting the model, you can download the drivers (any). Please do that.
