    hi i just got a wireless router and i sorted my modem out, anyway , i do exactly what netgear say when i put in the installation disk , and with my modem plugged into the wan port and then it linked to my laptop i can get on the internet , but ofcourse i want it wireless , so once the built in wizard ends it just ends saying succesful , then thats it , my wireless isnt working or nothing.

    i went on the settings of the router but i dont really understand it ,so if you understand what im saying here , is there something i have to do after ive run through the netgear installation wizard to make it wireless?

    connect by cable and post an iPCONFIG /ALL - see later

    then download this program and run it

    Free software to check signal strength of wireless is netstumbler 0.4.0 available for download from http://www.stumbler.net/


    ipconfig /all

    TWO Methods to do that - some people have problems with ONE----

    ONE ---------------------------------
    start
    run
    cmd
    ipconfig /all

    rightclick in the box
    select all
    enter
    control key + C key - to copy
    then reply here and
    control key + V to paste

    TWO -----------------------------------------------

    Start, Run, CMD to open a DOS window and type:

    IPCONFIG /ALL >C:\RESULT.TXT

    Open C:\RESULT.TXT with Notepad and copy/paste the entire results here.

    Read through the manual to find out how to enable wireless on the router. If you don't have a manual, you can download one from Netgear's web site.
