Well, it would help a lot if you told us what kind of wireless router you have.  But I will assume it's a Linksys or something like it.

You open a browser, put in the default IP address of the inside interface of the router (probably 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1) and you should get the logon screen.  Login to the router - if it's a Linksys it will be admin as the username and no password, I believe.

Go to the interfaces screen and set the outside interface, or the WAN interface, to be whatever your static IP is from your ISP.  Make sure you also set the gateway address also.  You may have to enter in some DNS information if you have that too.  Also the subnet mask.

After setting the IP address and other information, it should work.  You should be able to get an IP address and the SSID will probably be "Linksys" and it will probably be channel 1.  Your wireless should detect it.

Note, there's a couple of other things you'll want to do - change the Username, password, SSID, and enable WEP if you want to.

Hope this helps - post what type of router you have and what difficulty you have if you need more help.

It is available on my NetGear wireless router.  It would be strange if it wasn't.
