I currently have my computer running on the internet via my Speedtouch 330 USB ADSL Modem or Router, i dont know what it is to be honest. Know I want to go wireless and use my D-Link DSL-G604T BUT HOW DO I CONNECT AND SET IT UP ? ? :)

Do I take out all the speedtouch ADSL filters I already have connected up, or do i keep them? PLEASE HELP ME! I'm Running Windows XP and my ISP is Tiscali. :)

Thanks,


Morgan

First, welcome to Geeks-To-Go :)

Secondly, all you should have to do is take out your old modem and pop in the new one. You will need to leave the filters on. Once you have the modem in place, you will need to go into the Administration menu and setup PPPoE so you will need your username and password for your ISP. Keep in mind that all of this should be done via a wired connection (Cat5 Ethernet Cable) hooked directly to the modem. Then, once you have that setup and working (you should have internet access at this point), you should go in and secure your wireless network. If you need help with that or if you have any questions or issues, let me know :)

Typically, you will open a web brower and type in something like 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1 . Check the documentation that came with the router, it should explain how to access it.

That should give you access to the administration console, yes. Make sure that you hook up to the router with a ethernet cable also.

It's no problem. Just make sure that you secure your wireless connection to at least WPA. If you need help with that, just let me know.

WEP is not secure unfortunately, I highly recommend that you use WPA-PSK. But the choice is yours :)
