Attach an ethernet cable from your wireless router to an adapter that has a phone line in-take. Plug a phone cord into the adapter and into a wall phone jack. Go to your control panel and click network and shareing center. Click manage network connections. Right click your wireless network card and click enable. Note: if when you right click, it has an option to "disable", your wireless network card is already enabled, dont do anything. Now click connect to a network. Your wireless connection should automatically come up. Click it and click connect. Create a connection name. Click Next. Create a passphrase. You're all set

Hi licking;
what type of wireless router are you using? a linksys? or a dlink?
do you have color coded cables?

try this:
from your modem(the box given to you by your isp), connect a cable from your modem LAN port to the WAN port of your wireless router.

If your going to connect a pc wired to your wireless router, you can connect a cable from your wireless router LAN port to your lan card of your PC.

give more details and ill be happy to help you. :)

NEED TO HOOK UP MY IPAD AND HAVE FOROTTEN MY PASSWORD AND USER NAME THAT I USED WHEN HOOKING UP MY LAPTOP. PLEASE HELP THANKS MAUREEN NICKS


Warning, you will lose all settings and will have to re-setup your router and it's security settings etc.

On your router there should be a tiny little button that says "reset" you usually need to use a paper clip or something similar to press it.

Hold that button down for a few seconds (usually till lights start blinking) and it should restore the router to the factory settings. You can then login with the default user name and password that the router ships with (check your user manual for this info).

Looking to hook up wirelees router


You should have one plug that is marked WAN - this connects to your modem with a standard Ethernet cable. If you cannot read the labels, it will be the plug, slightly removed from the other four plugs.

You need to connect the power adapter to a power strip to avoid unnecessary power entering your network and to protect the router.

You should be able to start the router without a PC attached. Just look for Dynex being broadcast wirelessly. Your network is not secure wirelessly until you add a password to the network.

See if you can get to fixya.com from your laptop. If so, things are going pretty well. You now want to add security to the wireless network.

Write back if you need help.

Set up difficulties


You sure can. Start w/ the Comcast modem as long as it is NOT a USB type and hooks using a CAT-5 cable (regular network cable). Hook the comcast modem to the WAN port of the wireless router. On the back of the wireless router use the normal 1-4 extra LAN ports to hook other computers or the SD208 switch to it and other computers from there.

Word of advise if using Wireless Router, be sure to read manual and set a KEY for your network to secure it from unwanted outside use.

Computer wont recognize cable hookup


You will have to start the configuration from the wired network rather than the wireless network. Connect the computer directly to the router. I am assuming you might be trying to configure the router from the wireless network. Then use the installation CD to configure the router

Other computer won't connect wirelessly


Comcast is apparently weeding out multiple connections through routers. They want you to pay extra for their wireless router and pay an extra $5 a month too.

Hooking up my gaming router


There is a 90 % possibility that the wireless settings on the gaming adapter and the router are not the same. Try to reconfigure this again. Remember that the gaming adapter's wireless settings needs to synchronize with that of the router to make the gaming adpater works. Call netgear and verify the settings on your wireless connection and reverify the settings you have on the adapter. For manual instructions, see user guide at www.linksys.com/download
