Creating an Actiontec MI424WR wireless network with a FiOS connection



Before you can connect a computer to your home network, you must configure Windows to automatically obtain an IP address for the Actiontec router.

Although you can set up a home network in Windows 98 SE, Me and 2000, you will find it significantly easier if the computer connected to the router is running Windows XP. Windows XP was designed with features and installation wizards specifically for home networking.

Note: The instructions for installing a home network in the earlier versions of Windows will be released in the future. Until these instructions are released, you can find information on the Microsoft Web site.
