How to Install a Wireless Network

As more and more people move on from Dial up to broadband and connection to the information super highway there are new things like routers, modems that need to be setup in order to get online and start browsing. This guide is very basic and not too technical and hopefully it is helpful to those with little to no background in setting up wireless networks.

Cable companies tend to not give cable modems with wireless built in. Therefore you have to go find a good wireless router that works well. But which one? 

I personally use the Linksys 2.4 Ghz wireless G router. This router gets approximately 54 Mbits/Second. This varies depending on the type of router you get. B is one of the first wireless types to come out. They get approximately 11 MBits/second, Wireless G gets approximately 54 Mbits/second and Wireless N gets approximately 74 MBits/second. The range of your wireless network also depends on the type of router you decide to get. I would recommend getting a Wireless G for an apartment and a wireless N for a huge mansion.

After you bring your router home, installation is pretty straight forward for the most part, follow the steps below for easy installation:

  1. Plug your wireless router as close as possible to your DSL or Cable modem. 
  2. Your Wireless modem should be accompanied with a RJ45 cable, plug in one of the cable to a port in back of DSL modem and port most likely labeled "Internet" or "Uplink" of your Wireless router.
  3. Now both are connected, however setup is not complete. You will need another RJ45 cable connect it from any open port from back of your wireless router to the your laptop or desktop. The port should light up in front of your wireless router to indicate that a device is connected directly to your router.
  4. Depending on the device you get, you will need to go to one of the following IP addresses in order to setup security and configure your wireless network so that it is not used for free by your neighbors. Http:// or Here you will be required to first setup a user name and password to enter the settings. Please note it down so you do not forget in case you need ever need to come back. We are not done just yet, this does not secure your wireless network from your free loading neighbors.
  5. Go to the wireless tab and setup your SSID it will need to be set to broadcast so when you have multiple devices that need to connect. Name it something simple and easy for you remember.
  6. Enter encryption code, this is very important, this will be the password you will need to know whenever you decide to connect a new device to your wireless network. Only devices that have the WEP key entered correctly will be able to connect to your network and use it to connect to the Internet. I would recommend using WPA Personal as your WEP Security Mode. 
  7. Once you have your wireless device connected to your network you should be able to connect using wireless and will not be need to be stationary or confined to just one room of your apartment or home.
