Power on the computer. Plug in the Linksys Wireless G router to the power outlet.
Linksys routers are made by Cisco. These popular routers are often used to configure wireless Internet networks for the home and workplace. Before setting up the Linksys G wireless router, it is important to make sure your Internet connection is working properly. Plug the Ethernet cable directly into the computer and verify that you can access the Internet. To set up the network, you will have to access the Linksys G wireless setup page online.
Things You'll Need
- 2 Ethernet cables
Connect the modem to the Linksys router's "Internet" port using an Ethernet cable. The LED lights on the front of the router will be lit.
Connect the router to the computer. Insert another Ethernet cable into one of the Linksys router's "1 through 4" ports and into the Ethernet port on the computer.
Go online to the router's web-based setup page. Launch the web browser and enter "192.168.1.1" in the browser address field. Click the "Enter" key. Enter "admin" as the user name and password when prompted.
Select the "Setup" tab. Select "Basic Setup." Enter the numbers "192.168.2.1" in the Local IP address field on the Linksys setup page. You can also enter in a unique network name in the corresponding field. Click "Save Settings."
Hit the "Status" tab. Verify that the "Internet IP Address" has numbers and values. The router should now have Internet access. If the values displayed are all zeros, the router is not configured to the Internet because the ISP requires a user name and password.
Select "Setup" and click on "Internet Setup" in the left pane of the Linksys online setup page if you saw zeroes in the Internet IP Address display. Choose "PPPoE" from the Internet Connection Type menu. Enter the user name and password for your ISP. Hit "Save Settings." The Internet should now be accessible.
