I am trying to set up a wireless network, but my router does not have a USB port to use the thumb drive option in the XP wireless network wizard.  Instructions say Ithe unrecommended option is to manually enter the wireless network settings for each device, whic hI cannot find out how to do.

Don't know where to begin.

Pleae advise.

Thank you.

    There is a link to a video on the right side of the webpage under related documents that shows how to get started.  It usually is not that difficult.  There should be a wizard as well.  Give it a go and let us know if you run into trouble.

    Once the wireless network is created and you try to join clients to the network it will ask for the key.  you ahve the option of putting it on a usb key or manually typing it in, but it is that simple.  Write the key down from the router.  Find the network on the client computer, Join the network and then provide the key when asked.  As long as router does DHCP and is all setup the clients will start to comunicate.

    Routers are usually configured by using Internet explorer.
    So in your internet explorer  click Open and type :
    Then you will access all the settings.
    If you are promptet for a password do not type anything.
