The following instructions assume you are run-
ning Windows XP’s default interface. If you are
using the Classic interface (where the icons and
menus look like previous Windows versions),
please follow the instructions for Windows 2000.
In Step 2, you will configure each of your computers to communicate with the
Router.
To do this, you will need to configure your PC’s network settings to obtain an IP (or
TCP/IP) address automatically. Computers use IP addresses to communicate with
each other across a network or the Internet.
B. Select the Configuration tab and highlight the
TCP/IP line for the applicable Ethernet
adapter*. If the word TCP/IP appears by
itself, select that line**. Then, click the
Properties button.
B. Select the Local Area Connection icon for
the applicable Ethernet adapter (usually it is
the first Local Area Connection listed). Double-
click Local Area Connection and click the
Properties button.

Once you know which Windows operating system you are running,follow the directions in this
step for your computer’s operating system. You may need to do this for each computer you
are connecting to the Router.
The next few pages tell you, step by step, how to configure your TCP/IP settings
based on the type of Windows operating system you are using. Once you've config-
ured your computers, continue to Step 3: Configure the Router.
E. Click the OK button again. Windows may ask
you for the original Windows installation disk
or additional files. Supply them by pointing to
the correct file location, e.g., D:\win98,

I tried the suggestions above and still cannot get access to the Internet from my Router. What can I do?

You can refer to the Troubleshooting appendix of the User Guide on the Setup Wizard CD-ROM, or you can get additional assistance through one of the resources listed below.

Open your web browser and type http://192.168.1.1 into the "Address" field. In the "Enter Network Password" box, leave the "User Name" field blank and type admin as the password. Then, click OK. From the Setup tab, change the channel to 1. Click the Apply button followed by the Continue button to save the settings. Continue doing this until you find the channel that provides the best range.
