Answers :


You haven't provided much detail, I'll have to guess alot.

What you need to do is to connect the wireless router to your dls modem, there should be a internet or unplink named port in the back of the router separate from the other ones. probably has a diffrent color also. Plug a wire from the uplink / internet to the dsl modem's port.

now that is connected. plug it into the power adapter and turn it on. Now take a wire from the wireless to your desktop or any other computers that won't be using wireless. (if possible Wire is better than wireless)

then the computers that are supposed to be connected with wireless, should see the wireless network when you open the wireless networks from the bottom right corner of your screen you should have a wireless disconnected icon or a connection icon down there, and it should open the wireless network list. you will have to connect to your network.

I really need to know the brand and model of the wireless router to help you.

heres a more detailed guide with pictures.

Note that since the guide is done with xp it will look somewhat diffrent but is basically the same.

Also please watch this video for some more information about the wireless and you should also set up security. Or its basically like leaving your front door open.

The video has alot of good info for you on how to set it up. Please use the user manual that came with the router to find out how to do these things. Also the network name will read in the user manual - incase your not sure what it is by default.

Thanks and good luck
