How to Configure the LinkSys WAP54G Access Point 1. For this device you initially start with both your computer and the access point connected to the network. If you have 2 data ports in your room you should have your PC connected to one and the access point connected to the other. Insert the setup CD that came with your LinkSys access point and follow the prompts until you reach the following screen. Make sure you select the access point on the left hand side that matches the 12 digit MAC address on the right. The MAC address will be printed on the bottom of your access point. 2. On the Basic Settings screen please give your device name a descriptive name such as Belk_rm123. MAKE CERTAIN you have Automatic-DHCP selected in the Network drop-down. 3. Set the SSID to the same device name you set in the previous step. 4. Wireless security is recommended. In this example we will configure WEP security. 5. Enter a security passphrase. This will then generate the WEP key which you will use to make your wireless connection later. 6. Now open up your Windows Wireless Network Settings and click on View Wireless Networks. 7. Locate your wireless device name in the list and highlight it. You can either double- click on it or click the Connect button. You will then be prompted to enter the WEP Key you generated earlier. 8. Now you’re connected to your wireless access point!
