Question about Computers & Internet
To turn on your wireless on the PK 5000.
If the PK5000 was setup with the default settings follow these steps to turn on the wireless.
1.) Open up an internet browser such as Internet Explorer or Firefox.
2.) Delete the info in the address bar at the top where it has your homepage the http://www.myhomepage.com, then type in the numbers 192.168.0.1 then press enter. This should take you to the modem configuration page. If not, you may have another address for your modem such as 192.168.1.1
3.) On the Modem Configuration page there are 5 options. Choose the Wireless Setup option.
4.) In the middle of the page there are 4 steps.
5.) On step one turn the wireless to On by selecting the small circle button next to On.
6.) On step two this is your wireless name that will appear when connect from your laptop, you can change this name to something you would like or you can keep the default name.
7.) On step three it is already selected the default passphrase/password that will be required when you attempt to connect to the wireless network from your laptop. The default password is in green. I recommend keeping the default Key/passphrase: you will notice the default key/passphrase is also on the modem itself near the barcode under key/passphrase so if you ever forget it you can look on the modem.
8.) On step 5 click on apply, your PK 5000 will reboot itself and the light on the modem next to wireless will turn green when the power light is a steady green.
9.) On your laptop search for wireless networks then select the network name you chose, then enter the key/passphrase from the back of the modem next to key/passphrase.
10.) That should do it, good luck.
