NOTE:If the Linksys router replaced an existing router and you lose wireless Internet connection at any time after you set up this equipment, disconnect the power cord from the back of your cable or DSL modem. Do not unplug the router. Wait 60 seconds, reconnect the power cord to the modem, and then wait for the modem to reinitialize. If the wireless Internet connection does not return, you might need to contact your Internet Service Provider to restore the wireless settings.

  2. Open the router box, and then unpack the router.
  3. Follow the on-screen instructions to set up the router.

NOTE:If you want to set up the product on a computer other than the Pavilion notebook computer that came with the bundle, use the setup CD that shipped with the product. When the setup completes, continue with 'Step four: Set up the wireless connection manually.'
  1. When the on-screen instructions prompt you to start the product setup, open the product box, and then unpack the product.

    The router and the product use Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS), which allows the product to gather the wireless settings automatically. During the install, the setup program might prompt you to press the WPS button () on your router. This allows the router to connect to the product.
    NOTE:You can also make a wireless connection without using WPS. To set up the wireless connection manually, continue with 'Step four: Set up the wireless connection manually.'
    The light next to the WPS button () flashes blue for about two minutes during setup. If the light turns amber or yellow, wait until the light turns off, and then continue with 'Step four: Set up the wireless connection manually.'
