I am helping a friend setup their netgear wgr614 router to their laptop but I am not sure how to get it working without it having to be connected to the laptop. I have the same router myself but I also have a desktop so I didn't have a problem with mine. So is their a way to setup their router so that they can use the laptop without it needing to be connected? The laptop is an HP with Vista as the OS.

You mean connected with a cable? Connect wirelessly and configure it.

That's what I want to know how to do. The instructions with the router only tell you how to set it up with the cable connected. It won't show any other way. I don't know how to set it up wirelessly without another computer.

Turn your Router On, search for available wireless networks, connect to your router, then open your configuration page just like you were cabled to it.
