- Connecting a Wireless-B Game Adapter to a Non-Linksys Router
NOTE: Before connecting your Wireless-B Game Adapter to a non-Linksys wireless router, please determine the SSID and the Wireless Security and/or Network Key. If you do not have these settings, consult your wireless router’s user guide or contact the manufacturer for assistance.
Setting-Up the Wireless-B Game Adapter
Connect the Wireless Game Adapter to your router using an Ethernet cable. For instructions, click here.
Insert the Setup CD to your CD-ROM drive and run the Setup Wizard. A screen similar to Step 3 should appear.
Click Setup to begin the set up process.
The Setup Wizard will then search for the game adapter. If it cannot detect the presence of the game adapter, check the connections then click Continue.
When the next screen shows the current settings of the game adapter, click Next to continue.
When the game adapter is located, enter “admin” on the Password field and click Enter.
Make sure Obtain IP Address automatically is selected then, click Next.
Under Mode, select Internet then enter your wireless network’s SSID on the SSIDfield.
Select the correct encryption set on the wireless network.
If WEP is set to Disabled, it means there’s no security enabled on the wireless network. Click No and proceed to Step 11 for the next instruction.
If WEP is enabled, select the same WEP encryption level either 64 bit or 128 bit.
NOTE: In this example 128 bit was selected.
Enter a unique word under Passphrase or manually enter a WEP key and leave the Passphrase option blank. In this example “MySecretKey” is used as the Passphrase. You may click No to finish the configuration or Yes if you want to configure another profile.
