    Wireless Adapter?

    Okay the User Guide for my Wireless Router has this in the instructions and I'm sorta confused. "For initial access to the Router through a wireless connection, make sure the PCís wireless adapter has its SSID set to

    linksys (the Routerís default setting), and its WEP encryption is disabled. After you have accessed the Router, you can change the Router and this PCís adapter settings to match the your usual network settings."




    My questions is do all computers come with a wireless adapter or is this something extra I also have to buy? And which one do I install/setup on the PC first? The Adapter or the Router?

    They are talking about when you connect wirelessly. Usually you use a LAN cable to connect your PC directly to the router. Laptops and the Wii you would usually connect wirelessly.

    That doesn't really answer my question but okay. I know I'm connecting my PC to the router wirelessly. I'm asking if there is something additional I need. (ie the Wireless Adapter). And if thats the case which should I install on the computer first? The Wireless Router or the Adapter?

    If you want to connect your PC wirelessly then you need a wireless card for you PC. You can't install a wireless router onto your pc since it is just a piece of hardware that doesn't need a PC to operate.

    So you're trying to setup a wireless router on one computer and an adapter on another? Or the wireless router is already setup and you're trying to install an adapter on a new computer?

    I'm trying to create a wireless network for my house. I've pretty much figured out most of the issues. It turns out that the computer modem had a Wireless A+G PCI Card so I can connect the router to the computer. My only other issue is that it says in the instructions to, "For initial access to the Router through a wireless connection, make sure the PCís wireless adapter has its SSID set to linksys (the Routerís default setting), and its WEP encryption is disabled. After you have accessed the Router, you can change the Router and this PCís adapter settings to match your usual network settings."

    Now how do I go about doing that if the Wireless Card is already inside the computer?

    Whats the point of even saying that? I've already BOUGHT everything smart one. I'm not going to just go give up and not install everything. IF you have nothing good or productive to say that might help me then stay out of it...

    If the router is hooked up and the wireless adapter installed into your PC then all you should have to do is tell your PC to connect to the "linksys" network.
