    Brandnewbian...easy ?

    I realize this a stupid question for you guys but I have to ask it.

    I have a desktop....

    w/Comcast cable modem

    I bought a wireless laptop ( Toshiba ) and router ( Linksys ) Wireless B

    What is the sequence that they should be connected?

    Does the Desktop need to be wireless as well?

    Should there be software with the router?


    Thanks in advance

    Find your model and read the manual


    It should tell you how to set it up

    Cable>cable modem>router>laptop

    Yes there is software that comes with the router but I never install it. If your laptop has wireless card and you are running Windows XP, Just allow XP to handle the wireless configuration. Sometimes you can get a conflict with the linksys software and XP software configuration. Read the manual and you will learn how to access the router from your IE browser.
