My 8021.11g Wireless LAN ADSL router. I bought today and dont no how to set the thing up, well i had a rough idea but not much is happening. The make is cable and wirless and these are the steps i took
Connect the aerial securly to the back of the router. (check)
Make the following conections to that back of the router (check i think i conected the "ethernet port" to the router and to the back of my PC.
Power on the router then wait for the WAN/ADSL lights to stop flashing.(they did but some other lights flashed)
Insert Cd click install router .... now i do that and it brings up an internet page that cant be displayed
(" The page cannot be displayed

That as far as i get
But i have some other questions besides What do i do next, I bought this so i can have my broadband connection on my laptop. But if this router is conected to the phoneline how do i put my broadband filter on the phoneline as well. I tried putting them both on but broadband wouldnt work. Thanks for your time
this darn thing is driving me insane Lol!!! Really its begining too. I have been googling trying to find out how to do it. I came up with a few diagrams showing you have to have a modem connected to the router. It says nothing about that in the instructions. and when i rang cable and wireless helpline they said i no longer needed the NTL modem. SO what i have now is
Ethernet cable (connected to back of PC)
ADSL (going straight to the filter and phone line)
The darn thing wont setup. According to the next step i would be able to enter a user name and password. but when i click on Setup (on the instllation CD) It tries to open a webpage but cant askes me to connect to the internet (but how can i i no longer have the modem from NTL attatched, and this Router hasnt beeninstalled yet. So i click work offline and it says page cannot be diplayed.
the page it wast to connect to is http://10.0.0.2
I was also wondering i bought this so i could share it woth my brothers Laptop i bout a network card for his, from other diagrams it looked like i needed to buy a USB adapter. Is this correct or not, because i thought that i could use the internet through the the Ethernet cable thats connected to the router??? Sorry if this is going on. Thanks for reading. Can anyone help??
