    Hi All,

    Just got myself a wireless router and I'm having problems setting this up as wired. I going to be running my PC and PS3 from the router (already getting help in another forum regarding the PS3 side of things) but would rather have the systems connected with cable rather than wireless.

    The router I bought is a TP-Link 54M Wireless Router (model No. TL-WR340G if that's any help).

    I'm having problems setting this up as wired to my PC as there seems to be no instructions regarding this option (or no way to enable/disable).

    Should I go though the installation process of setting this up as wireless first then just connect the router with cable afterwards?

    Hope you can help.

    Cheers,

    C h r e d g e.

    Just connect the cables correctly, and everything should connect without any configuring.

    Hi,

    Thanks for the reply.

    OK - it must be something I'm doing then! I'll give it another shot this afternoon.

    Cheers again,

    Hi,

    Resolved now.

    Turned everything off and waited a while. Afterwards, turned everything back on and problem solved!

    Cheers for all your help!
