I would like to set up wireless router with above firewall.  How can I configure it? I have no problem to configure wireless router at home but with the firewall. I don't know how to do that....:-)

I need step by step instruction. Now I am able to login as admin. and  I have full permission to do that

Thanks

Connect the wireless router to your PC only.  Do not plug anything into the WAN/Internet port.
In the wireless router:
1) Setup the wireless SSID and security -> Save the changes
2) Set the router's ip to one compatible with the FVS318 and out of the way of the other LAN devices (i.e. 192.168.0.250)
3) Turn off DHCP ->Save the Changes
4) Connect one of the wireless' lan ports to the FVS318 and reboot your PC.

The FVS318 will act as the DHCP and any PC's connected to the wireless (wired or not) will be on the same network; but, you won't ever be using the WAN/Internet port on it.

Davis: This is really smart way to do.  And have some questions.

1. Set the router's ip to one compatible with the FVS318 and out of the way of the other LAN devices (i.e. 192.168.0.250) - I don't know what you mean.

it will be better to make me understand if you can send me screenshot. And I really appreciate your helps.

I've told you what to do and how to do it is in the manual I also gave you a link to.  The only thing you need is the ip address range of the router you want to plug it into.
