Re: Wireless router confuss here..
to set up the router you need to be on the same subnet as the router
what I would do is take one pc and take the wirelwsss router over to the pc with a patch cable. connect the cable to the router, go to network connections in control panel, right click your network interface card, then click properties, then highlight TCP IP and click properties ,if you have static ip addresses write them down and the other info too.. If the radio button is already on obtain ip automatically ok , if not set it now, then close back out to windows desk top.
Make sure the router is connected to the pc, power on to the router, press the router reset switch. may need a thin wire, like unfolded paper clip. At the windows desktop click start , then in run type cmd press enter
type ipconfig /releas this will release your old ip address and obtain an ip address from the routers DHCP. Then you should be able to click on IE and it will open up and click on the stop or the document with the red x on it directly to the right of the right go back arrow, this will stop the browser from loading. Then you type in the ip address of the routers embeded web page, should be in the instructions. It is best to get everybody connected ( same SSID / CHANNEL also set to 802.11 B or G or both, depending on what is connecting....then the second wave is security, if you do not get this right you will open a gigantic hole in your network security. Set the encryption, change the ssid , change your log on password, If you will not have guests turn off ssid broadcast.
