Creating a wireless network with an Actiontec GT704WG gateway in Windows XP

When you configured the computer attached to your router, you saved your Windows home networking information to a flash drive or to a removable media like a floppy disc. In this step, you will use this saved information to configure the computers you're connecting to your home network.

Note: If you are connecting computers running Windows 98 SE or Windows Me to your home network, you must use the flash drive or removable media to start the Network Setup Wizard.

To configure Windows for home networking:
  1. Insert the removable media into the appropriate type of drive on your computer. If you saved the information to a flash drive, insert the flash drive into an available USB port.
