Setting up your wireless connection in your router.
*** Step #5 = you can choose the type of encryption that fits your set-up, the example I give is: WPA/TKIP+AES
***Also Pay close attention to the security and security key information and make sure it matches. (What is entered in the router must be entered in the computer.
1.Open Internet Explorer and type 192.168.1.1 into the address bar.
2.You will now get a sign-in box, User Name = (Leave Blank)
3.Once the set-up page opens, click on the Wireless Tab as youwill need to change the settings. A) Wireless Network Mode = Mixed
B) Wireless Network Name (SSID) = Choose any name and do not use Linksys.
C) Wireless Channel = 1, 6 or 11 is best, so see which work best for you.
D) Wireless SSID Broadcast = Enabled.
4. Now go to the bottom of the page and click on save settings.
5. Click on the Wireless Security Sub tab.
A) Security Mode: WPA
B) WPA Algorithms: TKIP + AES
C) WPA Shared Key: Type 24 letters, and numbers using lower and upper case letters
D) Group Key Renewal: 3600
6. Once again go to the bottom of the page and click on Save Settings.
7. Now you can close out of this page.
8. You will now need to enter the security info into your computer. I will now give you 2 links, depending which operating system you have, Vista or XP you will follow the one you have.
Now try to make a wireless connection.

Ok, I need you to open the command prompt. (This step is important as we need to access the linksys set-up page to enter/obtain certain info to enter into the wireless laptop)
Go to start>>run>> type: cmd and click Ok>> the command prompt box will open>> type: ipconfig /all >>scroll down to you see the default gateway and let me know what that number is, also that is the number you should type into the address bar. It should look like: 192.168.x .x (x.x will be numbers on your machine).
