how to setup wlan

1.Connect your wireless router with your DSL modem with the Ethernet cable.
2.Configure your wireless router. Open internet explorer and type the IP address of your router in the address bar. Different vendors have different specifications and different login/passwords details. After providing the login/password details, you will be provided with a router configuration page. Most of the settings are okay and you need to set up the following things.
?Wireless network name (SSID)
?Wireless encryption such as WEP or WPA
?Administrative password.
3.Install wireless LAN card on each computer in your network. You can find the installation instructions in the manual, which is provided by the manufacture. Insert network adapter in the empty PCI slot. Windows XP automatically detects the card and will prompt you to insert the installation CD. Follow the on screen instructions and install the LAN card. After the installation is successful, Windows XP should show an icon at the status bar. Also a notification message appears that says it has found a wireless network.
4.Right click the wireless icon and click ?View available wireless networks?.
5.In the Wireless network connection window, you will find your network with the same name as you chose before while setting up the wireless router.
6.If you don?t see your network then click the ?Refresh network list? in the upper left corner.
7.After you find your network, click it and press ?connect? in the lower right corner.
8.Next, you will be prompted to enter the encryption key. Type your encryption key in the network key and confirm key boxes. Make sure that you have to enter the exact encryption key.
9.Windows XP will show you the progress as you are connected with your network.

I agree 100% here but I cannot understand why other members such as Piconet Tetokoneet whatever his name is has been doing this for a long time and no one seems to mind - it drives me mad!!
