    Follow the 'quick start' instructions that you got with it!

    Briefly, the cable from your modem should be removed from the PC and placed instead, in the router. Another cable then links the router with the PC. That's if you want to hard wire it.

    If you want that PC to be wireless then there is obviously no need to link the router to the PC.

    It's that simple really.

    Once the router is running, click on 'view available wireless connections.

    DON'T FORGET TO ENCRYPT THOUGH

    @angus999: pfft, encryption does almost nothing!

    @kawsar: take my advice, keep your router on only when you need it. iam not saying dont encrypt it, its just that they are to easily hacked, even when encrypted!

    yeah its possible. but its rare. lets face facts shall we? somebaody's not gonna be bothered trying to find stealth networks when the could just drive around to another open network. now the only real reason somebody would hack a stealth network is because they want to do it from their house or they have a grudge against you.
