All you got to do is first to connect the router to the modem with an Ethernet cable...then connect the router to the computer wirelessly

And in order to connect it to computer you got to make sure that you have a wireless adapter on to the computer if not you will have to buy and install one (All Laptops have inbuilt wireless adapter however desktop does not have in general)

Then once you have the wireless adapter installed on the system

Simply click on the computer icon on the bottom right corner of your screen (if using windows ) or If you are using a Mac machine then you got to click on the Airport icon on the top right corner

Upon clicking on the icon you would be able to view the available wireless router/access point in range of your computer

Identify your router (SSID and wireless Key would be printer on a sticker on the router) and click on it to connect...if it prompts you for Key/password simply type in the Key printed on the sticker on your router (Either on the back or on the bottom of the router)

That's it you configured it

Any further questions or difficulty let me know

Thanks

Tip

Setting up Wireless on router and wireless security


For setting up any router you can follow the below simple steps

  1. Connect the router with a power cable and switch on the poser, reset the router with its reset button normally you can find the reset button on the rear side of the router for 30 seconds and then switch off and on the power
  2. After reset conenct the router to any laptop or desktop with a cable and also connect the router to the modem or the internet service provider cable
  3. after all connection lights will come on go to right hand side corner of the computer and check if the network connection is showing connected
  4. Once you are connected with a wired connection open a page of internet explorer and type in router addess normally it will be http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 and then type the username and password default usernames and passwords can be found in router manual.
  5. Once the router setup page is open you can confugure the router easily without the CD setup.
  6. The advantage is you do not have to run the setup CD and you can also do wirless settings for your wireless laptops or devices
  7. Go to the wirless settings page and you can select the wireless on and off or you can setup a wireless security to avoide your router with unauthorized acess
  8. I would recomend always keep the wireless network secured if you are using the router for a home or small office as there can be people who will be using your bandwidth for free without your permission
  9. one more tip i would like to give whenever any kind of setup is required on the router do it by a wired connection only and not thought a wireless pc or laptop as it can disconnect you from the router in between of your setup
  10. WEP is the kind of wireless security which is easy to setup and remember and most wireless cards of laptops and computers support it
All the best with your wireless router configuration and security setup

Connecting a brother hl2170 wirless printer to a linksys wrt54g


Take note all the wireless settings of the router first. Now go to the printer and Press Menu/Settings, look for wireless setup wizard. It should find the network, highlight it and connect. If it asks you for the network key, type your wireless network key. It only allows WPA-Personal(TKIP) and WEP. If you have WPA2 or AES, it will not connect

I WANT TO SETUP MY ROUTER TO WIRLESS


Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} Go to START and find RUN, then type in CMD and hit ENTER, should throw up a black box (Dos window) you will type IPCONFIG and it should give you an adapter gateway ip address like 192.168.0.1 or something like that, from there close out that box and launch internet explorer or firefox or netscape or whatever browser you use. Type in the ip address where you would normally type www.google.com. Hit ENTER, this will interface you with the router. It might be password protected. Usually the username and password are both the word admin. If not look at the bottom of router for password. Look for wireless tab once in router and select network type as wep. Look for the key that the router automatically generates. This will be your wep key. Now your wireless connection will be secure. Hope this helps...Tennis123

Reconfiguring rouer


If you have the setup CD you can just run it to your computer and let it reconfigure the router for you, but if you don't have the setup CD you need to manually configure the router by accessing its IP address using the computer that is wired directly to the router....
