Creating a new Verizon MI424WR wireless network
The process for creating a wireless home network can be completed in less than 10 minutes. These simplified directions make the following assumptions:
Your Verizon MI424WR router has been installed and you can access the Internet.
You have a wireless network adapter installed in the computer you’re connecting to the wireless network. You can use Device Manager if you’re unsure whether you have a wireless adapter installed.
To create your Verizon MI424WR wireless home network:
Click the wireless connection icon () in the right Taskbar next to your clock information.
Select the wireless network you want to join when the list of available wireless networks displays.
Select Connect automatically to connect to this network each time you log in to your computer.
Click Connect to join the selected wireless network. The status will change to “Connected.” [Show Me]
Entering the network security information
Enter your network's security encryption key in the Security key field. Your router was configured by the manufacturer to use WEP encryption and includes the WEP key on a label affixed to the bottom or side of your Verizon MI424WR router.
If you have improved your network encryption by upgrading to WPA2 or WPA encryption, enter your updated encryption key.
