Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router
I am trying to set up wireless router, I do not get the wizzord. Also do I need a wireless Adapter to use with my desk top. I want to be able to run desk top and lap top
You don't need to have a WiFi adapter for the desktop. It can be connected using a LAN cable from the PC's Ethernet port to one of the routers Ethernet port. AS long as the desktop is set to "Auto obtain IP add" then it should work straight out.
If the LinkSys WRT54G did not came with a setup CD/Wizard, then you would need to reset it since I can only assume that it has been tried/used elsewhere before and the settings/configuration may not match your ISP and/or your network configuration. Reset involves pressing a small recessed button at the rear of the unit for about 10 seconds or more.
Once the reset was done and your router can connect to your ISP and therefore your desktop to the Internet, the laptop would also follow suit as long as the network settings is likewise set to Auto obtain.....
To verify if you can connect to the router, on your desktop, open a browser and log on to your router using 192.168.1.1,
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.
