Steps to create an Actiontec MI424WR wireless network in Windows XP

If you have additional computers you want to connect to your wireless network, please follow the directions below. If you have no additional computers to connect, you can skip to Step 6.

 

The instructions for adding a computer to your wireless network depends on whether the computer you're adding has a wireless network adapter already installed.

If your computer has a wireless adapter built in or you have previously installed a wireless network adapter, you only need to set up the connection to the wireless network. The directions are much simpler and generally take less than five minutes to complete. If you're unsure about whether you have a wireless network adapter, you can use Windows Device Manager to determine whether you have one installed.

If you don't have a wireless network adapter installed, connecting an additional computer will require two major steps:

  1. Configure Windows on the computers you are adding to the network so they have the correct components for home networking installed.


  2. Connect the other computers to your home network using Ethernet cable or wireless network adapters.


Note: If you're creating a wireless network for a single laptop computer, you can skip this step and continue with Step 6.
