I am not sure as to where you see the error 311 at but the setup of a Linksys
wireless router is fairly easy.
If the router is new out of the box there is little be done for initial connection. If you purchased the router from a friend or it is used, you might want to reset the router configuration to factory defaults.
- Reset the router by unplugging the power from the back, press and hold the reset button with a paper clip or small narrow object.
-Plug the power back into the router while holding the reset button.
-Wait 5 secs before you release pressure from the reset button.
Make sure you have the cable from your DSL
modem plugged into the "Internet" port on the back of the router. (Almost all models will use DHCP
to get an IP address from the modem, some times you must unplug the power from your cable modem and router. Next plug the power back into your cable modem and wait until all the lights on your modem on light up as normal operating. Next plug the power back into your Linksys
router. This forces your modem and router to refresh communication with one another.)
To connect your pc to the wireless router it will be different depending on your Operating System (i.e. Windows 98, 2000, ME, XP, Vista, 7). There should be a wireless adapter down in the system tray either managed by windows or if you have a dell, hp, compaq, they each have their own wireless management software that has an icon down in the system tray ( Far bottom right corner). For most you can double click on the icon or right click and choose options or properties. This would allow you to maneuver to a "View Wireless Networks" button / tab. From the wireless tab you should see a unsecured wireless network called "Linksys" This should be yours depending on if you live close to neighbors that have out of the box setups as well. Just choose the wireless network with the best signal ( similar to cell phone signal bars), this will most likely be yours. You can double click the wireless network, or click once to highlight then click the connect button. Your operating system may prompt you that your are connecting to an unsecured wireless network, just tell it ok and it will connect.
Once you are connected this link can go into further detail as to how to secure your wireless network.
Please let me know if that solved your problem or if you need more help.
