Installing a wireless adapter
Connecting additional computers to a Verizon MI424WR wireless network in Windows XP
When adding computers to a wireless home network that includes a Verizon MI424WR router, you must have a wireless network adapter installed for each computer you're connecting to your home network.These network adapters receive and transmit the radio waves used to send and receive data.
If you purchased the wireless network adapters when you ordered your router, you may have received either D-Link or Westell adapters. You may use either of these adapters if you plan to use WEP encryption.
However, Verizon recommends using the strongest network encryption that is compatible with the devices connected to your network. In most cases that is WPA2 encryption. To use WPA2 or WPA encryption, you must upgrade your wireless network adapters to the ZyXEL G-220 or N-220.
