Hi there,
I want to create a wireless network so I can access the internet on my laptop. I have BT Broadband which I usually have to dial into through a USB ADSL modem (BT Voyager 105).

I bought a HiPoint Wireless Firewall ADSL2 4 Port Router (AWR-2440). So far the installation manual hasnt been any help.

The set-up I tried was plugging the line from the telephone socket directly into the Router, then connecting my PC to the router with an ethernet cable (RJ-45) from my PC's on-board network adapter.

So...I have no idea what to do now...

Here's my network Connections:

How do I set up a wireless connection?

Any Help is greatly appreciated :whistling:

Go into the router's configuration pages, you set up wireless in there.

Hi Adzi,

with the router connected to the PC go to start /control panel / network connections (classic view). Double click on the Local Area Connection. this should bring up a Status window. Click on support. note the default gateway. This is the address to the router interface. It will probably need a log in that is usually a default set and specific to the manufacturer of the router. You should be able to Google the log in.

Once inside the interface you'll have to find the configuration settings. Some firmware has a setup wizard built in.
