did you get issued an IP address from the Wifi Router?

Open CMD and type ipconfig to find out, look for the default gateway, this will be your wifi router... open IE and put in the this IP address to configure the router...

IIRC, the wireless access point is not turned on when you initially turn the router on. You'll need to actually plug into it with an ethernet cable to be able to set it up and turn the wireless access point on.

Remember that 192.168.1.1 is not a site on the Internet. It is the IP address that your router assumes on your home network.

Plug a cable into it, then direct a browser to http://192.168.1.1, then follow directions. Ask specific questions, please.

No offense, but most manuals have quite specific and easy to follow directions...

True. And Linksys has pretty good tech support, I've dealt with them in the past and had no problems.

Just don't ask them the meaning of life.

unless you want to use a Packetshapper or some Nbar on a router (cisco) you will find it difficult giving one PC morebandwith than the other, typically any PC behind a NAT device will share the bandwidth at the NAT device...
