Summary

Here are the key points to remember from this chapter:

  • Most of the time getting a Wi-Fi network going is really easy.

  • You need to have a working Internet connection with a computer connected to a broadband modem before you start.

  • You must know the settings your ISP requires before you can set up your Wi-Fi network.

  • The Wi-Fi access point is connected to the Internet modem, and your wired computer or network is also plugged in to the access point.

  • Most Wi-Fi access points are administered using a Web browser and Web administration utility.

  • You should change the default network name and enable WPA or WEP encryption for security reasons.

  • After the Wi-Fi access point has been configured, you'll need to set up your computers for access to the Wi-Fi network.

  • If the Wi-Fi unit doesn't work, and you think you are doing everything right, check the manufacturer's website for known service issues and consider the possibility that the unit might be defective.
