    G is backward compatible, it should just work out of the box.

    RTFM?

    To network VersaLink to additional computers in your home or office using a wireless installation, you will need to confirm the following:
    1. Ensure that an 802.11b/g/g+ wireless network adapter has been installed in
    each PC on your wireless network.
    2. Install the appropriate drivers for your Wireless IEEE802.11b or
    IEEE802.11g adapter.

    As always, Google is your friend. Make use of it...

    I have never seen this type of router but it only took me a couple of minutes to find and read it's manual. Cemetric probably did the same...

    It probably took you a lot longer to post a message here and having to wait for the answer telling you to RTFM

    RTFM= Read the F***ing manual, when i first tried to learn this stuff people would tell me RTFM all the time, i didnt have a clue what it meant and wasnt about to ask.

    What i did learn was that if i checked google first and couldnt figure it out and listed what i tried to do this group of peeps would be a lot nicer

    what i did find though was if i couldnt find the answer elsewhere and i posted a question here i get an answer in a minute cause a of of people hang out here to learn and be helpful, what i finally leanred was i know little and less and less everyday
    the only way to fix it is to flush it all away-tool
