    • 1). Set up the router near a computer with a wired network card. Plug the computer into one of the router's open ports with a network cable. Open a web browser and enter the router's IP address. When prompted enter the username and password. This information may be in the router paperwork or on the bottom of the router. Enter a name for the router and turn on any security under the wireless tab, such as WEP. You'll need to know the WEP key so the other computers can connect to the network.

    • 2). Find a central location in your house to keep the router. If you want to share Internet through the router, however, you are limited to having your router near the location of your broadband connection. For DSL you'll need your router near a phone line and for a cable modem connection you'll need it to be near a cable outlet. The DSL or cable modem will need to connect with a network cable from the modem to the router's "Internet" port.

    • 3). Set up your computer. Make sure your computer has a wireless network adapter. If it does not, you can purchase an external USB adapter. Click on the adapter in the task bar, select your router and click "Connect." Enter the WEP or security key if you set one up.
