Question about Hawking Wireless-G HWR54G (603992506064) 802.11b/g Wireless Access Point
I have Verizon DSL with a Westell 6100 modem (not wireless)
My Westell modem is connected to a wired Linksys 16 port switch
The Linksys switch provides my home with Ethernet connectivity
My Westell modem serves as my DHCP server assigning IP’s in the range 192.168.1.15 through 192.168.1.254
IP leases are good for 99 days
All computers/devices connected to the Linksys switch are successfully assigned an IP address and can access the internet
I wanted to add wireless functionality to my home network. I purchased the HWR54G for this purpose.
I would like to configure it so that machines connected to it are on the same network as those connected to the Linksys Switch.
My understanding is this is referred to as an Access Point.
I called Hawking Tech support and they advised me to do the following to allow my HWR54g to act as an access point:
Yes there is an easier way! Just setup the router as you would any normal setup. Follow the directions to set it up for the first time. What you want to do is have the put in all of your information that you need for it to communicate with your Modem. This will automatically place the router onto your network. Now the part that I believe you want is for this to be secure! Well setup either a WEP or WPA these are both encryption Protocols that will denie access to anyone other than you or someone you allow to access your network wirelessly.
You do not really have to go through all of the trouble of setting up specifics. As long as the two devices communicate the router and the modem will do the rest. I do this everyday in my daily work day! Anymore quesitons please feel free to ask!

At the back of your device next to the WAN Port (internet port) you will find a small hole with a button inside it, turn your device off then press and hold the small button in while switching on your device, keep pressing down on the button for about 5 seconds, that will reset your router to default settings.
Keep Moving Forward.
