Creating a wireless network with a Verizon MI424WR router in Windows XP

  1. If you are creating a new home network, it's recommended that you use the default WEP 64/40 bit encryption assigned by Verizon and displayed in the Key Code field. This simplifies network installation and makes troubleshooting easier.
    • The default WEP encryption key is displayed on the label attached to the bottom of your router for easy reference.
    • All hardware attached to your home network must use the same WEP key.

  2. If you're replacing the router on an established home network, you may want to change the default WEP key to that of your previous network. This eliminates the need to change the WEP key on all the wireless network adapters used to connect additional computers.

  1. Review your wireless security settings in the "Current Wireless Status" section. If they are correct, write them down for future reference. [Show Me]

  2. Click Apply.
