In simple terms yes !

You just need to type in the address of the router into your web browser eg. 192.168.1.1 or whatever.

How to install a wireless router without installation CD


To connect to your wireless router, the router's wirelesssettings needs to be configured with the SSID, encryption etc. and also thewireless cards in all the laptops/computers needs to be configured with theserouter's wireless settings. Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicatewith your wireless router.
Connect a LAN cable from the Linksys to the LAN port on your computer.
Open a browser and enter the Linksys configuration URL
http://192.168.1.1
The default login = admin

You can protect your router by changing the default admin PW (write it down andput it in a safe place)

If you have not yet installed the wireless card driver then install it.
To connect to your wireless router then -
Theencryption key secures your data from unauthorized access. The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key.

The routers not finding the laptop.i turn the router on the same time as the laptop but its not even indicating that the router exists


You need to install the driver for the router on your laptop in order for you to set up a network on your device. If it has been already installed, you need to refresh (reset) your router to be able to notice your laptop or you will have to manually add your laptop to your network.

Buffalo G45S router


make sure that there's a wireless card installed in the laptop. if it has, check that it's installed properly on device manager. if it's installed properly check if the wireless capability of the router is enabled. you can access the router's web user interface for you wireless settings. if you have done evrything but your laptop won't still connect, try to isolate the problem by connecting another laptop to your router wirelessly, if another will connect porperly to the router, it means that there's somethign wrong with your laptop or the other way around

hope this'll help you and just ask me if you have other concern

ciao!
