How do I set up a wireless network where I don't plan to have a direct ethernet cable connected to the router from a computer? Do I have to setup the router with a direct connection to a computer first? How do I avoid conflicts during log on once the router is set up and I am communicating via a wireless PCI card to the router?

sounds like routing issue. this may help, quoted from http://www.chicagotech.net/routing.htm

Routing order

If you have two NICs in the same subnet on one w2k/xp computer, you wonder which NIC is been used as primary NIC to access the Internet. In most cases, when adding the second NIC on a w2k/xp computer, the first one is the primary NIC. You may change the order by going to Advanced menu of the Network Connection>Advanced Settings>Adapter and Bindings. If the settings doesn't work (by default, the faster NIC will be chooses as primary NIC) or if you want to override the settings, you can assign metric # manually by going to the Properties of the Network Connection>the Properties of the Network Connection>Advanced.

Hi, a common problem that many face when setting up wireless systems.

1. Make sure the your modem ( Cable or DSL) is connected to your router.

2. You wireless card should see your router in the scan section of the options.

3. Access the setup menu by using the standard ip or

4. Follow the screen prompt to set up the router to recognize your systems ONLY.

P.S. Make sure your card and your wireless router operate on the same frequency. IE 802 A,B, or G.

Good luck
