Steps to connect additional computers to a wireless network with a Verizon MI424WR Router


When you add computers to an FiOS wireless home network, you must install a wireless network adapter for each computer you are connecting to your home network. These network adapters receive and transmit the radio waves used to send and receive data.

Desktop Computers

Install a Westell wireless USB network adapter in each desktop computer you're connecting to your home network. A USB cable connects the wireless adapter to an available USB port on your computer.
  • Note: The Westell wireless USB adapters are not compatible with WPA2 or WPA encryption. If you want to use WPA2 or WPA encryption with a wireless USB adapter, you must upgrade to the ZyXEL G-220 wireless adapter.

Notebook ComputersIf you're connecting a laptop computer to your home network, you have two options for wireless network adapters.
  • Install a Westell wireless USB network adapter into an available USB port.
    • Note: The Westell wireless USB adapters are not compatible with WPA2 or WPA encryption. If you want to use WPA2 or WPA encryption with a wireless USB adapter, you must upgrade to the ZyXEL G-220 wireless adapter.

  • Install a Westell wireless notebook adapter into an available slot on the side panel of your notebook computer.
Note: Many of the new notebook computers are manufactured with wireless network cards installed. Use Windows Device Manager in Windows XP to check whether you have a wireless network adapter installed.
