\015\012\015\012\015\012Connect your wireless router
\015\012Since you'll be temporarily disconnected from the Internet, print these instructions before you go any further.
\015\012First, locate your cable modem or DSL modem and unplug it to turn it off.
\015\012Next, connect your wireless router to your modem. Your modem should stay connected directly to the Internet. Later, after you've hooked everything up, your computer will wirelessly connect to your router, and the router will send communications through your modem to the Internet.

\015\012
\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012•\015\012\015\012If you currently have your computer connected directly to your modem: Unplug the network cable from the back of your computer, and plug it into the port labeled Internet, WAN, or WLAN on the back of your router.
\015\012\015\012•\015\012\015\012If you do not currently have a computer connected to the Internet: Plug one end of a network cable (included with your router) into your modem, and plug the other end of the network cable into the Internet, WAN, or WLAN port on your wireless router.
\015\012\015\012•\015\012\015\012If you currently have your computer connected to a router: Unplug the network cable connected to the Internet, WAN, or WLAN port from your current router, and plug this end of the cable into the Internet, WAN, or WLAN port on your wireless router. Then, unplug any other network cables, and plug them into the available ports on your wireless router. You no longer need your original router, because your new wireless router replaces it.

After a minute, the Internet, WAN, or WLAN light on your wireless router should light up, indicating that it has successfully connected to your modem.

\015\012\015\012\015\012Configure your wireless router
8d8f1b2.jpg \015\012Using the network cable that came with your wireless router, you should temporarily connect your computer to one of the open network ports on your wireless router (any port that isn't labeled Internet, WAN, or WLAN). If you need to, turn your computer on. It should automatically connect to your router.
\015\012Next, open Internet Explorer and type in the address to configure your router.
\015\012You might be prompted for a password. The address and password you use will vary depending on what type of router you have, so refer to the instructions included with your router.
\015\012As a quick reference, this table shows the default addresses, usernames, and passwords for some common router manufacturers.

\015\012\015\012Internet Explorer will show your router's configuration page. Most of the default settings should be fine, but you should configure three things:
\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\0121.
\015\012\015\012Your wireless network name, known as the SSID. This name identifies your network. You should choose something unique that none of your neighbors will be using.
\015\012\015\012\015\0122.
\015\012\015\012Wireless encryption (WEP) or Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA), which help protect your wireless network. For most routers, you will provide a passphrase that your router uses to generate several keys. Make sure your passphrase is unique and long (you don't need to memorize it).
\015\012\015\012\015\0123.
\015\012\015\012Your administrative password, which controls your wireless network. Just like any other password, it should not be a word that you can find in the dictionary, and it should be a combination of letters, numbers, and symbols. Be sure you can remember this password, because you'll need it if you ever have to change your router's settings.
\015\012The exact steps you follow to configure these settings will vary depending on the type of router you have. After each configuration setting, be sure to click Save Settings, Apply, or OK to save your changes.
\015\012Now, you should disconnect the network cable from your computer.
\015\012\015\012\015\0124.
\015\012\015\012\015\012Connect your computers
\015\012If your computer does not have wireless network support built in, plug your network adapter into your USB port, and place the antenna on top of your computer (in the case of a desktop computer), or insert the network adapter into an empty PC card slot (in the case of a laptop). Windows XP will automatically detect the new adapter, and may prompt you to insert the CD that came with your adapter. The on-screen instructions will guide you through the configuration process.
\015\012Note: The steps below only apply if you're using Windows XP Service Pack 2. If you're running Windows XP and you don't have Service Pack 2 yet, plug your computer into your wireless router and download and install Windows XP Service Pack 2.
\015\012Windows XP should show an icon with a notification that says it has found a wireless network.
5118333.gif \015\012Follow these steps to connect your computer to your wireless network:
\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\0121.
\015\012\015\012Right-click the wireless network icon in the lower-right corner of your screen, and then click View Available Wireless Networks. If you run into any problems, consult the documentation that came with your network adapter. Don't be afraid to call their tech support.
\015\012\015\012\015\0122.
\015\012\015\012The Wireless Network Connection window should appear and you should see your wireless network listed with the network name you chose. If you don't see your network, click Refresh network list in the upper-left corner. Click your network, and then click Connect in the lower-right corner.5914228.gif\015\012\015\012\015\0123.
\015\012\015\012Windows XP prompts you to enter a key. Type the encryption key that you wrote down earlier in both the Network key and Confirm network key boxes, and then click Connect.
\015\012\015\012\015\0124.
\015\012\015\012Windows XP will show its progress as it connects to your network. After you're connected, you can now close the Wireless Network Connection window. You're done.
\015\012Note: If the Wireless Network Connection window continues to show Acquiring Network Address, you may have mistyped the encryption key.
