Wireless Setup Guide

Note: When setting up or changing your wireless settings it is a good idea to be plugged into the router with your network cable and not your wireless connection.
          If you are using your wireless connection and make any changes you will lose you wireless connection.

Step 1.

Open your favorite web browser and input your routers ip address in the address bar.
Please note that you must have the http:// in order to connect to your router/modem properly.

If you don't know it you can check our list of default router and modem password list here.

If you have changed it and don't remember it you may have to reset your device to factory default using the reset button on most routers.

Step 3.

Click "Wireless"

By default 'Setup' should be chosen, if not click it now.

Put a check on "Enable AP:"

For 'SSID' set a name you would like to call your wireless.
What you put here is what will show up when you are searching for a wireless connection.

For ' Hidden SSID' normally you will have this unchecked.
This will broadcast your wireless connection to be detected by your wireless card.
This is a good way for a standard user to find the network, but also why it is important to have wireless security in place.

For 'Channel B/G' choose a number between 1 to 11 (11 is a good default).

For '802.11 Mode' set to 'Mixed'.

Once all information is set click on 'Apply'

Step 4.

Now click on 'Security'

For 'Wireless Security Level' you will have multiple options, for the sake of keeping this guide simple I recommend you choose WPA.
WPA is widely supported by wireless cards and allows you to set your own password.

Choose 'PSK String'

For setting your wireless password you will enter it into the 'String' box.

Once you have your setting all set click 'Apply'
