    Connect one end of an Ethernet cable to any of the numbered ports on the rear of the router. Connect the remaining end to the Ethernet port on your computer. Connect a second Ethernet cable to the port on the router labeled "Internet." Connect the other end of the cable to your high-speed modem.

    Power on your high-speed modem. Plug the router's power supply into any available electrical outlet; connect the power supply to the appropriate port on the rear of your router. Examine the LCD lights located on the front of your router. Wait for the LCD light labeled "Diag" to stop displaying a bright red light, and then turn on your computer.

    Open the network management control panel for your operating system (in Windows, open the "Start" menu, select "Control Panel" and double-click on the "Network Connections" icon; in OS X, open the "Apple" menu, select "System Preference" and click on the icon labeled "Network").

Locate the wireless mode menu and select the appropriate option, based on the types of devices you wish to connect to your network (if uncertain, select "Mixed"). Choose a unique SSID name and enter it in the appropriate field; click "Apply."

    Click on the button labeled "Enable" next to the option labeled "WEP." Click on the button labeled "Edit WEP Settings" and enter your desired security information. Make a note of these settings; then click "Apply."

    Requiring password

    If your wireless access suddenly requires a password, one of two things has happened...
    either you are inadvertently trying to connect to a neighbor's wireless router, or someone has modified your router.
    If you are certain it is your router you are attempting to connect to, and it is requiring a password you did not setup, your best bet is to perform a hard reset. There should be a reset button on the back of your router. You should press and hold this button for a few seconds. This will clear all setup information and return the router to factory setup.
    In order to setup your router from this point, you will need to connect directly to the router, perform whatever setup options you prefer, and then you should be able to connect wirelessly.
    It is highly recommended that you setup a password for wireless access. It is also recommended you change the admin password to prevent someone else from making unwanted modifications.
