- Connecting a Wireless A/G Game Adapter to a Non-Linksys Router
NOTE: Before trying to connect your Wireless A/G 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 A/G Game Adapter
Connect the Wireless Game Adapter to your router using an Ethernet cable. For instructions, click here.
Access the Wireless A/G Game Adapter’s web-based setup page.
When the Game Adapter’s setup page appears, look for the SSID field and enter the wireless network’s SSID.
Look for Network Type and select Infrastructure.
If WEP is not enabled on the wireless router, look under Security and select Disabled then proceed to Step 10.
If WEP is enabled, look under Security and select Enabled. Click Edit Wireless Security then proceed to the steps below.
When the WEP Encryption window appears, select the same Default Transmit Key as your router’s. In this example, we selected 1.
Select the same WEP Encryption level either 64Bit(10 hex digits) or 128Bit(26 hex digits). In this example we selected 64Bit(10 hex digits).
Enter the wireless network’s WEP Key based on the Default Transmit Key selected. Since we selected Key 1, we’ll enter the WEP Key in the Key 1field.
When the Setup page appears, scroll down then click Refresh and select your wireless network’s SSID.
Once your SSID is selected, click Connect.
Click Apply and you’re done setting-up the Game Adapter with your non-Linksys router.
