I have just bought an n wireless router to take to spain with me however i only have a lap top and your instructions seem to say to connect to a computer tower.can i do it directly to lap top


Yes, your laptop PC will work fine. Normally you need to be sure the laptop is on the same network as the router and connect to its Ethernet (LAN) port via the built in wired network adapter on your laptop to configure.

Pam;
If your laptop does not have a built in wireless adapter, you cannot use the router wireless. There are ports on the back of the router that you can connect your router to the laptop. The image below shows ports numbered 1-4. These are for the cable to your computer. The other port needs to be connected to the modem from your Internet service provider.

You will need a length of RJ45 Cat 5 cable from a local Best Buy or computer store. This may be difficult since you live in a more rural area. The cable can be purchase online from Frys.com. Measure the distance you want to use the laptop from the router and buy the length cable you need.

Buying a wireless notebook adapter will allow you to connect to the router without this cable, but the costs are higher. If you decide to buy one, get a USB modelmoz-screenshot-1.png.

it will be easier to use and choose. The router will also have to be setup to allow the connection to be made wirelessly. This can be found in the manual online at linksys.com.

Got the router without instructions. How do I set it up to work with my lab top and desk top?


first thing you need to know is the default ip/password is 192.168.1.1 with the password being "admin" that will get you into the router im assuming your going wired to the desktop and wireless for the laptop, so first you'll need to hook the router up to the desktop using a cat5 wire from your network card to one of the numbered ports on the back of the router, ok now that you have a connection to the router open up a web browser and in the address bar type in 192.168.1.1, no user name and a password = admin, once your in there click under the wireless settings and enable the wireless network, change the ssid to something you like and can remember, then under the wireless security tab enable the wpa2 security encryption personal works fine then enter a nice password that you can remeber but isnt too easy to guesse, once you have that set up use the laptop to see if you can now see your new network and once you can try and connect to it using the password you just made up, now then if your going wireless all the way your still going to have to wire your desktop to the router for these initial steps once the changes are made then if you have a wireless card for your desktop then you can disconnect the wire and use your wireless card to find the new network and connect to it :) hope this is helpfull
