click here Some of the menu items that you see may be slightly different, as the 7632 has a couple of different versions, one of which received a firmware update fairly recently. But that gives you a pretty good description of what you need to do.

Something that I haven't as yet added to that guide (it's due for an update) is my advice about creating your encryption key:

Open Notepad and create your key in there. Save it and copy it to your other PCs (put it on a flash drive or something). Copy and paste the key into the router's interface, then do the same when logging into your network wirelessly. This saves a lot of typing and avoids crucial mistakes.
