The manual for your access point is here, and it provides a thorough explanation of setting it up: ftp://ftp.linksys.com/pdf/wap11ug.pdf Do you actually have a router? Some modems provide this function, but many don't. A wireless access point is usually connected to one of the router's ethernet ports, just like a PC, then you run the setup program to set wireless security. If there's only one port on your modem, and you don't have a router, you need to buy one, or swap your access point for a wireless router.

Don't forget to reboot the modem once you first put the router in line.

You have to go into the routers settings, by typing it's ip address (refer to manual) in your internet browser and look for DHCP and make sure that it is enabled to automatically assign both your pcs an ip address. This must be done using a lan RJ45 cable that was supplied; first before going wireless. Next go to each pc and either use the wireless network setup wizard or go to your wireless network connections (in control panel>network connections) and right click on the connection(this is not the lan connection icon, make sure you choose your wireless icon) and select properties, then click the internet protocol line TCP/IP and again click properties. make sure that 'Obtain IP address automatically is ticked and click ok. Your pcs may need a restart and should find the router will be seen in your found connections, click connect and your away

Wanting wireless hookup


1)Prepare your modem. Unplug the modem's power cord and place the wireless router unit next to the modem. If the router has antennas, make sure they are raised to their full upright position.
2)Reassign your networking cable. Unplug the cable currently connected from your computer to your modem and plug it into the port located in the wireless router. This port is usually colored blue.
3)Connect the router and the modem. Use the networking cable that came with your wireless router to connect the modem and router unit. The router port is typically colored in green.
4)Start up your modem. Plug in the modem's power cord and wait 1-2 minutes while it configures its settings and prepares to connect to the Internet.5
5)Start up the wireless router. Plug the wireless router's power cord into an outlet and wait 1-2 minutes to get it started. The router is ready when the 'wired computers' and 'modem' icons light up. These logos or icons vary by make and model of your router so consult the owner's manual if needed.6
6)Insert your installation CD. Use the wizard or assistant to check the configurations of your computer settings and launch your wirelessnetwork clip_image001.gif
Things You’ll Need:
  • Wireless Router unit
  • Networking cable (comes with router unit)
  • Installation CD
  • Modem
  • Modem power cord

NETGEAR wgr614 cable wireless router


Hello,
have you tried to follow the manual chapter 3, page 3-1 ?
If you lost your manual you can find one here:
http://kbserver.netgear.com/pdf/wgr614v6_ref_man_20Apr05.pdf

One of your computers can go online because its using a wired connection to the router, but the wireless clients cannot access the connection - is this right?

Then you only need to setup the wireless part in the router.

To bring up the blue screen you need to open internet explorer (or whatever) and type the ip address given. In my book it says 192.168.1.1 after that you should get the blue screen. You can set up the connection then.
