    Using Linksys WRT54G Wireless-G Router or WRT54GS Wireless-G Router

    for Secure Setup for 2 or more systems.

    Basic Diagram:

    +--------+

    |High |

    |Speed |

    |Modem|

    +--------+

    +----------+

    |Linksys | +------+

    |WRT54G|->|PC-A|

    |Router | +------+

    +----------+

    +------+

    |PC-B |

    +------+

    Setup Procedures:

    Before you start you will need some important information!!!

    If you are already connected, go to the command line

    Start-->Run-->cmd

    Type ipconfig /all

    You should see something like this:

    Windows IP Configuration

    Host Name . . . . . . . . . . . .... : MyComputerName

    Primary Dns Suffix . . . . . . . :

    Node Type . . . . . . . . . ..... . . : Hybrid

    IP Routing Enabled. . . . . . . . : No

    WINS Proxy Enabled. . . . . . : No

    DNS Suffix Search List. . . . . : MyDomainname.com

    Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:

    Connection-specific DNS Suffix . : MyDomainname.com

    Description . . . . . . . . . . ............... : My NIC

    Physical Address. . . . . . .......... . . : Unique MAC Address

    Dhcp Enabled. . . . . . . . . . ........... : Yes

    Autoconfiguration Enabled . . . ..... : Yes

    IP Address. . . . . . . . . . .............. . : 192.168.1.42

    Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . ............ : 255.255.255.0

    Default Gateway . . . . . . .......... . . : 192.168.1.1

    DHCP Server . . . . . . . ........... . . . : 192.168.1.1

    DNS Servers . . . . . . . . ............ . . : Unique IP Address

    Primary WINS Server . . . ....... . . . : Unique IP Address

    Write these down or save them someplace for future reference.

    If you don't see anything like this you will need to get from

    your ISP.

    After you have all this information and have all your hardware

    connected similar to the basic diagram above you will need to

    configure your Router.

    Open broswer like Internet Explorer, Firefox or some such.

    In the Address box type:

    http://192.168.1.1/

    If you get prompted for a Username and Password type these,

    ADMIN/ADMIN

    We will change these later.

    You should be take to the Setup window for the router. Use

    all of the recommended settings below. They will help you

    configure your router for safe wireless use and wired use in

    your home.

    Whereever you see something in angle brackets <...> you must

    supply. When you create a new password use both upper/lower

    case letters and numbers. Write it down, memorize it, eat the

    paper you wrote it on and never share with anyone. Just kidding

    but you should not take this lightly. Anyone who know this

    information could make it so they could hijack your Internet

    connection. This could have sever legal consequences or imbaracing

    at the least.
