Connect phone line (through ADSL filter) to new router and then connect router to PC network connector using a network (ethernet) cable. If you are going to use router by wireless connection it is still preferable to perform initial set up using wired connection.

Use the Set Up guide and Smart Wizard CD that should have come with product. These contain full instructions and are more comprehensive than can be covered in response here to your question.

Link to Set Up Guide click here

If you intend to use wireless connection to router you are very strongly advised to set up wireless security to WPA-PSK.

If there are things not understood or problems, then post back for further help.

What O/S are you using?

Have you checked that any firewall is not preventing internet connection?

Lights look okay. Possibly have to use router software control panel to switch on wireless.

Can you connect to software control panel by entering into your browser address line?

I'm using window XP Home Edition,
I have checked and switched off fire wall,
I'have tried this cannot connect all this way,

Some time I get through by using smart wizard [ But not all way ],up to where it gets the server address all that .

But then when you start to think I'have done it,
You trie to connect to internet, No it will not connect to internet, keep say no dail up tune

Where is this router software , How do I get into it to switch the wireless on ?

There is one other thing that you can do, look at the paperwork that came along with your router and find the phone number to their support help- line. They have a 24/7 operation 365 days a year and they will guide you through the installation. They are very good. If buy chance you don't have the number here it is for the U.K. 0870 112 1206 or you can call 01344 458 200 and select option 1 for tech support. Hope this helps. J.B.

Sounds like you have a problem with the connection from PC to router, if the address http: // (without the space)cannot find the control panel in the router when you enter it in your browser address field. Need to resolve this first.

The control software runs only on the router and is not installed on your PC. Can you check that you have the cable connected correctly between PC and router, preferably using a known working cable. It has been known for cables to be non-functional.

Try to check connection by folowing
Select "Start" then "Run"
Type cmd into box and select OK.
Black box will appear type the following
then hit Enter key. Should get report back giving details of connection timing. If you get Time Out message connection is not working.
