As the name suggests the wireless router is device used for networking purposes functioning also as a network access point. The speciality about routers is that they are operational in wireless local area networks, wired local area networks and also when there is the possibility of the existence of both kinds of networks.
Routers have a unique operating system and are designed basically for the transfer of information. The basic step to set up a wireless router is to get the right kind of equipment. The three wireless technologies the router should support are the 802.11a, 902.11b and 802.11g. Other essentials are a networking adaptor and a built in networking support system for the proper installation the wireless router. Not to forget the main component of wireless router is the internet. The modem should be directly connected to the internet. One main thing to keep in mind is that all the interconnections should be made perfectly. Inspite of the fact that all the components are well labelled, the functions of the devices connected to the router are of utmost importance.
The configuration will start now. The internet acts as the medium of configuration between the router and the personal computer. Once the configuration is in the process a page will appear in which you’ll have to feed three inputs: the username 9which by default appear to be SSID), the password and the network protection (which can also be in the form of a wireless encryption). After all these procedures have been dealt with it is important to connect the PC to the wireless router either by a USB port or wireless network port.
It is important to note that your computer and the router have to necessarily be in the same network zone; otherwise it will fail to operate properly.
