    how do I set up a wireless connection to my Netgear wireless router when using XP (Service Pack 2/3)

    • Answer
    • To set up a wireless connection to the Netgear DGN1000 router, firstly ensure that you have set up a wired connection and that you have your wireless security details (the router name and security key) to hand. These are the details that you chose when you set up the wired connection.

       If you have the Pre-configured Netgear DGN 1000 router you will see a wireless settings sticker at bottom of the router. WiFi security key and SSID is printed on this sticker. WiFi security on this router is enabled by default and the mode is Mixed WPA/WPA2.

       

      1. Click Start, select Connect to and click Wireless Network Connection.

      2. Locate the Netgear router using the details you have set up during a wired connection 

         

          If you can't see your network name, click Refresh network list.

      3. Click on the 'Network key' field, and type the security key that you chose during initial set up into the field.

      4. Click on the 'Confirm Network key' field, and type the security key into the field.

      5. Click Connect:

         

      6. The computer will 'acquire a network address' from the router, and display 'Connected'
