Should be able to set all computers to default to Brother printer in the preferences section of the printer control panel ( look in 'control panel' of computer). You ca n also download manual from Brother website. Just type make and model + word Manual into search engine, and it should throw up the appropriate link.

NEED TO INSTALL MY ROUTER TO A NEW COMPUTER, LOST CD TO INSTALL CAN I DO IT IN INTERNET???? AND HOW PLEASE


Are you trying to add a new computer to the existing network ?
I assume you have the router working.
is it a wireless computer or the wired computer?
I believe the main computer is online.
Check the settings on the router.
You will need to open the router set up page.
here you will see the settings of the router.
If you are trying to connect to the wireless network then make sure that you are typing the correct network key.

No Internet via zoom X6 wireless router to desk top, lap top ok.


Access your zoom router by using the laptop which still has access to the router.

Your going to have to open your Wireless Network Connection Status window located under your network settings.

If you see this window your going to left click the (details) button


Now you should see a IP DNS server address
for example: 192.168.1.xxx

Type that address onto the address bar of your web browser.

it should take you to your router setup page.

There you will need to check if the lan port is enabled

How to install and will this box allow my desktops(2 of them ) to both be connected to a wireless network?


There are 2 ways to setup Netgear
1. Setup Wizard (which guides you through a setup wizard)
2. Manual Configuration (you need to put all values in router manually)

Here we are not discussing Setup Wizard as Manual configuration is far much easier then auto configuration

To configure (config) Netgear we need to get into router page
To open router config page
1. Open Internet Explorer (Start>>all prog>>Internet Explorer)
2. Type in address bar 192.168.0.1
3. In username box type admin (where it says gateway 192.168.0.1 requires username & password)
4. In password box type password (word password itself)
After this you will find Netgear ADSL Wireless Router Setup page

Here we need to select Basic Settings (as shown below)
basicsettings.jpg


after this you will find next page as

basicsettingsscreen.jpg

Here in this page (Basic Settings Page)

Does your internet connection requires login, Select Yes
Select Encapculation as PPPoE
Login is Username as provided by your ISP
Password is your password for broadband connection as provided by your ISP
Keep Idle timeout as 0

after this simply press apply without changing anything else


Now We Need to click on ADSL Settings Page
adslsettings.jpg


Now on ADSL Setting Page We got only 3 options

adslsettingsscreen.jpg
Multiplexing Method Should be LLC-Based
VPI 0
VCI 35

now just press apply again

By this time your router should be only (you can check it by opening any website on Internet Explorer or by router status option on netgear page)


To Config Wireless

Click on Wireless Option (on left hand side blue panel)

wirelesssettings.jpg


It should display next page as

wirelesssettingsscreen.jpg

Here in this page

Wireless Network Name (SSID) Alpha-Numeric name which would be displayed as your wireless network name

Region Here Select Your Region

Channel: Select whichever channel give you best sighal (9, 11, 13 are recommended)

Keep the TIck on Enable Wireless Access Point

Keep the Tick on Allow Broadcast of Name (SSID)

Can Untick Wireless Isolation

Then Jump to Security Options

Select WPA-PSK (Wi-Fi Protected Access Pre Shared Key)

then in WPA-PSK Security Encryption type in anything of your own choice but alphabets and numbers both should be there and make it between 8 to 63 characters long.
WPA-PSK Security Encryption Key is your password for wireless network

Now Press Apply and your router is ready for wireless too

After doing this you can change MTU (Maximum Transmit Unit) size to 1400 from WAN Setup Option

You can find WAN Setup Option in same blue panel on left hand side of screen

wansetup.jpg

Here you just need to change MTU to 1400 and need not to change any other setting

wansetupscreen.jpg

Now its all done and router is ready to send wireless signal to your system/laptop

Question on setting up two computers


Yes, I have pretty much the same setup at home. Wired desktop and wireless laptop. On the back of your wireless router, there should be 4 or 5 wired connections which you can use. You will only have to use the setup disk on one computer. Basically, the setup disk is for the router, not the computers, it simply guides you through the router configuration process. You can also do this manually, the manual for the router will give those instructions as well.
