Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Need to set up wirless router - PC Desktops


Answers :

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.
Could you please provide the model of your router and your Internet Provider (Cable/DSL) so I could help you set it up.
