What brand/model is it?
Generally, you should hook up the power, then have a Ethernet cable. hook the cable to the AP, then to the computer.
On the computer, type 192.168.1.1 on the address bar (recommend on Internet Explorer since many dont support Firefox)

from here on out, it will vary a lot.
for linksys, click on the "wireless" tab
look for the "ssid" and write that down.
now look for the wireless security option and set it to none or disabled. Click Save. on the wireless device, scan for networks.
Connect to the network that you wrote down.

For 2Wire, click on "Home Network".
In the box named "Status at a Glance" write the "Network name".
then click on "wrieless settings".
enter your password (the default is 123456)
on "wireless security" remove the check on "Wireless Network Security"
click save.

Thats the most i can help with this info. If you want to set a password, use the previous steps and create a password for the wireless network. You must also set this password on all your wireless devices.

Unplug router for 10 seconds and reconnect. This will stop the static charge buildup that happens frequently with routers. If needed, set up a wireless network using the network wizard and set all settings to automatic.

Are you trying to set up router ?
You can set up your router manually, without the CD.
Make sure that your computer is able to go online directly through the modem.
If your computer is able to go online through the modem, that means the modem is working fine.
You will need to connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router.
open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.

Wireless


what ever the password is for the wireless router when it was set up for 'wireless'. If you are using the wirless router you need to choose which network you are logging onto and then put in the password to get access to it. If you do not know it ask the person who set up the router what password they used.

Wirless router


The last thing you want to do is get rid of the password - operating an unsecured WiFi network can be very hazardous to your privacy & finances! You need to set the WEP password in the PC's. If you install the 3Com router software and use that to set things up, it will guide you through doing the job.

Also, it's better to use WPA encryption rather than WEP which is now regarded as insecure and little better than nothing at all. If you can get it working OK on WEP, it'd be easy enough to change it to WPA in the router & then change the setup on the PC's.

Unless you live in the back of beyond, this really is necessary I'm afraid :{

How to connect to the internet with a PSP


To connect your modem to a wirless router. Then make sure when you set up the wireless router that you remember the settings (mainly the password) and what kind of security you set, WAP, WEP AES or TKTP. Also make sure the wirless connector is enabled on your PSP (basically a switch on top of your hand held system).
