Setup for linksys wireless-G router: WRT54G2


When you are starting the setup for the router do you HAVE to use the computer the internet access is coming from or can you do setup from the computer you want to link to the internet through a home network?

for instance:

  1. here’s my sisters laptop with a wireless network adapter i want to link to my computer.

  2. here’s my computer. it’s the one with the broadband modem(internet access).

can i use the installation disk on #1 or do i HAVE to use #2?


Either way, you’re gonna have to hook up your modem to the router instead of the computer. For the actual setup, you can use any computer, you just have to configure it properly.

The install disk has a wizard that sets everything up for you. I’d just follow the instructions exactly.
