Question about Computers & Internet
Here are the steps :
1.Attach the antennas to the Linksys wireless router.
2.Place the router in a central location, making sure it's not surrounded by metal. (A signal can't be obtained through metal.) The router should be located so that the distance between clients (computers) is somewhat equal. This will create a better connection.
3.Plug the Ethernet cable into the "Internet" port on the back of the Linksys router.
4.Connect a computer to the router by plugging another Ethernet cable into the Ethernet port on your computer and attaching the other end to one of the available ports on the back of the router. You can choose any port except the one labeled "WAN."
5.Plug the router into an electrical outlet.
6.Wait for the power light to stop flashing, at which time the router is finished booting up. While the router is booting, the power light will be blinking. This process may take a few minutes to complete.
7.Reboot your computer so it can access a new IP address from the router through the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP).
Configure the Router procedure.
1.Open your web browser, type " http://192.168.1.1/ " into the address bar and hit "Enter."
2.Use "Admin" as the username in the pop-up box and leave the password blank.
3.Connect to the Internet and click on "Internet Setup."
4.Select your connection type from the drop-down menu. Choose "DHCP" for cable modems or "PPPoE" for most DSL modems. If you are unsure of these options, check with your ISP.
5.Set a service set identifier (SSID) to identify the router and change the password.
6.Encrypt your wireless connection using a Wireless Encryption Protocol (WEP) key. Under the "Wireless Security" option, enter a passphrase and click "Generate." This will generate a password which will need to be used by any client connecting to your router.

If you are experiencing frequent disconnection from the wireless network, it helps if you check the following factors, all of which can greatly affect your wireless signals:
your cordless telephone system (or even your neighbors'), or other nearby equipment. Try to change your router's channel to 1 or 11 (the default channel is 6) and restart the wireless computers.
Physical obstructions: Your router or wireless computers may be losing connectivity because of physical obstacles such as walls and floors. Try to move the equipment to different locations to find a better link.
