Where do I start with this wireless lan?

By johndoe2 ·
I'm new to the wireless world and I'm about to embark on setting up a wireless lan to share resorces and dsl service in my house. I have no clue where to start other than buying a linksys router with some usb adapters. How do I set it up, admin. it etc. etc. Any help would be appreciated!!!

3 things to remember

Wireless is just like a normal lan, so treat it like such. But you will need encryption (but that will be obvious later)

Usign DHCP will make it a breeze

And you wont need more than P2P networking structure unless dealing with a few comps.

XP makes this easier, but I would reccomend looking on Altavista or Google for a good how to manual

If you are looking into the Linksys cable/dsl routers, the tutorial that comes with it is pretty easy to understand as far as setting it up and administration. The admin tools that you access through a browser are fairly simple. For further help try these links:
