A Guide to Linksys Wireless Router Setup
Setting up a Linksys Wireless Router needn't be a difficult task, especially with the newer Linksys router models becoming easier to setup than ever before. With that being said if you follow this guide you should have your wireless network setup in no time!
First things first let's take a look at the back of the router. Whilst the different models will vary there are usually the following ports:
The WAN port might vary depending what model you have but will either be an Ethernet port or a DSL port. Most people will use cable and therefore have the model with the DSL port. If you happen to live in an area that provides the other form of cable using Coaxial then you might have a model with a WAN Ethernet port.
You are going to want to get the router powered up first and then plug in the WAN port. If you're on DSL then you will need to plug in a micro filter into your phone socket and then an rj11 cable from the micro filter to the DSL port. To setup the router you can either follow the steps on the setup CD or do it manually.
Normally the setup CD will be able to guide you through the entire process and is the best way to do it. However if you don't have a setup guide then manual process is easy enough. Firstly plug an Ethernet cable into the router and then the other end in your computer. Depending on the router you might be automatically assigned an ip address. Check the icon in the bottom right to see if your connected. If you have limited or no connectivity then you need to set yourself an IP.
The default range for Linksys routers is usually 192.168.1.x but check the documentation to make sure. Give yourself an ip address of 192.168.1.50 (You might have to change that depending what the default range is). Access the router config webpage, this will be the http:// followed by the IP address of the router (again, check the documentation provided).
From the webpage you should be able to setup the wireless network with a name and key of your choice. Just look for the wireless menu. Finally you should find the 'WAN' or 'Internet' tab and setup the internet connection. You might need to enter the username and password your ISP gives you.
Once you've done this you should be ready to roll! Browse your wireless networks on your computer and you should see yours listed there, pop the key in and connect and you should have internet access!
