Basic Setup

3Com OfficeConnect ADSL 11g - Quick Setup Guide

This Article has been written to assist users configuring a 3Com OfficeConnect for the first time, this is the most basic of configurations to allow access to the Internet.

This router automatically detects whether to connect using ADSL or ADSL2+, there is no option to override this.

 

 

Once you have connected the device to the telephone line and your local network via an ethernet cable browse to http://192.168.1.1/

You will be prompted for the System Password. The default is admin, if this is your first time visiting this screen.

 

Once logged in to the router, click the Wizard tab to start the setup process.

 

You are first asked to change the router's admin password from the default of admin. This is highly recommended as default passwords can easily be found on the Internet. Once changed to something you can remember, click Next.

 

Entering the above values will ensure router logs always have the correct date and time.

sahara Internet uses PPPoE for it's ADSL connections. Choose this then click Next.

 

Enter:
Username - username@speed.sahara.net.sa
Password - *********
VPI/VCI - 0 / 38
Encapsulation - VC MUX

then click Next once more.

Wireless Configuration for Linksys WAG54G Routers

This guide is suitable for Linksys WAG54G routers.

What we'll cover:

  • logging into your router
  • turning your router's wireless settings on (or off)
  • securing your wireless network so only people you allow may connect

You will need to connect your computer to your Linksys WAG54G with an Ethernet cable to complete the wireless setup.

Logging into the Linksys WAG54G router

Step 1

  • Ensure that your computer is connected to your Linksys WAG54G with an Ethernet cable.
  • Open your preferred web browser, e.g., Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, etc.
  • Enter the following number into the address bar and then hit Enter on your keyboard:
    • 192.168.1.1 (this is known as an IP Address)
Entering an IP Address into the address bar

Figure 1: Entering the IP address to access the router

Step 2

  • The modem Log In page will open. You will be prompted for a username and password.
Username: admin
Password: admin
This is the router's default username and password.
We recommend that you change the password for security reasons.
  • Click OK to log in to the router.

Configuring your Wireless Connection

Step 1

The Linksys WAG54G Menu

Figure 2: The Linksys WAG54G Menu

Step 2

  • The Basic Wireless Settings page should be displayed. If not, select the Basic Wireless Settings tab from the submenu at the top of the page.
  • Enter the following information into their corresponding fields:
Wireless Network Mode: Mixed
Wireless Channel: 11 - 2.462GHz
Wireless SSID Broadcast: Enable

Step 3

  • Create a name for your wireless network and enter this into the field labelled Wireless Network Name (SSID). Do not leave "Linksys" as the Wireless Network Name.

Creating a network name (SSID)

Your network name is used to identify your wireless network. This is particularly useful if there are other wireless networks nearby.

Because your network name will be visible outside of your home or office, the name should be recognisable but should not use any personal or service details.

  • Bad Network Names: 
    BloggsFamily, JoeBloggs, 123JamesStreet, Internode, default, your Internode username, your router's name.
  • Good Network Names: 
    MyNetwork, HomeWireless, Homestead, Cookie Monster (be creative!)
  • Once you have chosen a network name, click Save Settings to save the settings, then clickContinue to return to the setup page.
The Linksys Basic Wireless Settings screen

Step 4

  • Click the Wireless Security tab from the submenu at the top of the page to set your security settings.
  • Set the Security Mode to WPA Pre-Shared Key.
  • Do not change the Group Key Renewal information.
  • Create a password that will be used to access your wireless network. This needs to be entered into the field marked WPA Shared Key.

Creating a Pre-shared Key (Wireless Password)

A Pre-shared key prevents people you don't know from accessing your wireless network. When you connect your computers to your wireless network, you will be asked for the pre-shared key. If someone tries to connect without the pre-shared key, they will be unable to connect.

Your pre-shared key:

  • must have a minimum of 8 alphanumeric characters
  • is case sensitive
  • should never be the same as your Internode password

We recommend you create a complex password for your pre-shared key.

  • Once you have entered a password (pre-shared key), click Save Settings to save the settings.

How to set up a wired connection to your Netgear DGN1000 router

 

 

 

step 1 – connect the router to the Internet

 

At this point during the installation you’ve established that your computer is speaking to the router and that the router can detect a broadband signal through your telephone line.

 

You now need to get your router to connect to the broadband signal that is being sent to your telephone line.

  1. Open a browser, eg Internet Explorer  Safari  or Firefox .

  2. In the address bar, type http://192.168.0.1 or http://www.routerlogin.com.

 

 

 

3.A log in window (similar to the one below) will prompt you to log into the router’s admin pages – enter the details below:user name: adminpassword: password

 

 

 

The Netgear SMARTWIZARD admin pages will open:

 

 

 

 

  1. Every time you log into the admin pages the Firmware Upgrade assistant will check for a new version of Firmware

  2. We recommend you allow this check to take place as it may help reduce potential problems at a later date.

  3. Or if you wish to do this at a later date press skip.

  4. Click Basic Settings under the ‘Setup’ menu

 

 

 

 

  1. In the Login field, enter the broadband username – letters should be entered in lower case, and remember to add @fs at the end.

 If you have the Pre-configured Netg

  1. You will have chosen these details at registration and we will have confirmed them by email – if you’re unsure of these details contact our Customer Support department

  2. In the password field, enter the broadband password.



    


 

Click Apply and wait for the page to refresh.

 

Step 4  - set up wireless security

 

You now need to set up the wireless security settings on the router. Ensure you make a note of the details you choose as you will need these to set up the wireless connection or connect wirelessly to your router.

  1. Select Wireless Settings from the Setup menu:

 

 

 

 

  1. In the ‘Wireless Network’ field:

  2. change the SSID name to something other than NETGEAR, and unique i.e. Orange58647 or your preferred option of 32 alphanumeric characters

  3. set the region to Europe

  4. set the channel to Auto

  5. set ‘Mode’ to Up to 150Mbps

 

 

 

 


 

  1. In the Wireless Access Point field:

  • ensure that ‘Enable Wireless Access Point’ is checked (unless the customer doesn’t want a wireless connection)

  • ensure that ‘Allow Broadcast of Name (SSID) is check

  • ensure that ‘Wireless Isolation’ is not checked

 

 

In the ‘Security Options’ field, select the option ‘Mixed WPA-PSK+WPA2-PSK:

 

 

In the ‘Network Key’ field, enter a security key for the connection – this should be over 8 characters and can be made up of upper and lower case letters from a-z and numbers 0-9.

Secure Your Wireless Network: WPA/WPA2 (Recommended)

This article explains how to configure WPA/WPA2 encrypted security on NETGEAR wireless routers.  It can also be applied to NETGEAR access points.

Configuring WPA/WPA2:

  1. Use an Ethernet cable to connect a computer to any one of the four LAN ports of the NETGEAR router.
  2. In a web browser, enter the router's IP address - either http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.1.1 by default.
  3. When prompted for a Username and Password, enter the default username and password (adminpassword) unless you have already changed it.  NETGEAR recommends changing the default password to increase the security of your network.

    For Steps 4-9, refer to Figure A below.
  4. Select Wireless Settings from the Setup menu in the left-hand navigation bar. 
  5. Under Wireless Network, enter your desired network name in the Name (SSID) box.
  6. Under Security Options, select WPA-PSK [TKIP] + WPA2-PSK [AES]
  7. Under Security Options (WPA-PSK + WPA2-PSK), enter your desired network password into the Passphrasebox.
    • WRITE DOWN or KEEP NOTE of your network name, security option and passphrase - you will require them to connect wireless computers and devices to your network.
  8. Click Apply to save the settings.

 

Note:

  • Once your network is secure, you can further protect your network by restricting access to a set of devices through the Wireless Card Access List (aka, Access Control List).  With the Access Control List, devices that are not on the list are not allowed to connect to your network.

The quick setup feature is a simple way to configure the gateway with the most important settings. If you did not configure the gateway in EasyConfigurator, the following window appears automatically the first time you open the gateway's Web user interface (by opening the address 192.168.1.1). It also appears if you reset the gateway to its factory defaults:

To begin the quick setup, click Start.

Step 1. Configuring the Internet Connection

This is the first quick setup page:

  

In this page, you can set up the gateway's connection to the Internet. The most important settings are the connection protocol PPPoE, VPI:0/VCI:35 values, and various parameters specific to the connection protocol, such as a login user name and password. Your Internet Service Provider should be able to supply you with most of this information.

 

 

When you are done entering data in this page, click on Next.

Step 2. Wireless Network Name and Security Settings

This is the second quick setup page:

        

The gateway can be configured to continuously transmit the network name, so setting a meaningful name will helps you configure wireless communications with your computers. You will probably want to replace the default network name that appears in the top half of this page.

U.S. Robotics strongly urges you to select the Secure the gateway... checkbox. The Pass phrase is text you will need to enter if you wish to further configure your gateway's security. It's similar to a password, and you should enter a phrase that would not be easy to guess but that you will be able to remember.

Click Next to continue.

Step 3. Gateway Login

When you open the gateway's Web User Interface to work with the gateway settings, you will need to log in with a user name of admin. In this page, enter the password you want to use with this admin account..

           

Enter a password and click Next.

Step 4. Wrapping Up

You are now nearly done with the quick setup process. Click Finish to save your configuration to the gateway.
