- Setting up the X2000 gateway on a Mac® computer
Setting up your Linksys X-series gateway as a modem-router will make your device work as a DSL modem and a router at the same time. If you have a DSL Internet Service Provider (ISP), this option provides Internet access and networking connectivity to your home’s computers, without the need for a separate modem and router.
This article will guide you on how to set up your modem-router using the setup wizard on a Mac® computer.
NOTE: To download the Linksys Connect software of X2000, click here.
Insert the Setup CD into the DVD drive of your computer.
NOTE: The Setup Wizard is compatible with Windows XP or higher and Mac OS X 10.5 or higher. To setup the gateway using a Windows computer, click here.
Go over the License Agreement, tick the checkbox then click Next >.
At the How will you be using your X2000 screen, select Modem-router then click Next >.
Connect the power cable. If your router has a Power button, switch the device ON.
If you have a DSL Internet connection, plug one end of the gray cable to the modem-router’s DSL port and connect the other end to the telephone jack on your wall. If you have Cable Internet connection, connect the cable to the modem-router’s Cable port.
NOTE: For DSL connection, you will be asked to enter your ISP information. Select your region, ISP, and the DSL settings your ISP has provided.
Connect one end of an Ethernet cable to a yellow port at the back of the router and then connect the other end to your computer. Click Next >.
Wait for the Linksys Connect software to configure the router.
Change the Router name (SSID) and Password and then click Next >.
NOTE: Take note of the Router name (SSID) and the Password. You will need these pieces of information when you connect additional wireless devices to the network.
Your Linksys X-Series gateway should now be set up.
