					  How to configure the wireless Internet on
         your Clearaccess modem
Before setting up the wireless on this modem the
WLAN light on the modem needs to be lit solid. If
the WLAN light is not solid please contact your
local telephone office to activate the wireless
service on your modem.

For this setup your computer cannot be connected to the
modem with a network cable it needs to be wireless. If
your computer does not have wireless network support
built in, plug your network adapter into your USB port,
and place the antenna on top of your computer (in the
case of a desktop computer), or insert the network
adapter into an empty PC card slot (in the case of a
laptop). Windows XP will automatically detect the new
adapter, and may prompt you to insert the CD that came
with your adapter. The on-screen instructions will guide
you through the configuration process.
Note: The steps in the guide only apply if you're using Windows
XP Service Pack 2. If you're running Windows XP and you don't
have Service Pack 2 yet, plug your computer into your
ClearAccess wireless modem and download and install Windows
XP Service Pack 2. Go to the following web address to proceed
with downloading Service Pack 2 if required.

Follow these steps to connect your computer to your
wireless network:


1. Right-click the wireless network icon in the lower-right
   corner of your screen, and then click View Available
   Wireless Networks. If you run into any problems,
   consult the documentation that came with your network
   adapter. Don't be afraid to call their tech support.
   Note: If the manufacture of your wireless card is not set to be
   configured by windows and uses its own software contact the
   manufacture of the wireless adapter or laptop. Try to have set to let
   windows manage wireless network.
2. Wireless Network Connection window should appear
   and you should see your wireless network listed with
   the network name of ClearAccess. If you don't see your
   network, click Refresh network list in the upper-left
   corner. Click your network, and then click Connect in
   the lower-right corner.
3. Windows XP will show its progress as it
   connects to your network. After you're
   connected, you can now close the Wireless
   Network Connection window. Note: If it prompts
   you about connecting click connect anyway for right now.
4. Open your Web Browser (Windows products have
   Internet Explorer installed by default, and you can
   open this by double clicking on the big blue “e” on
   your desktop), and type “clearview” in the address
   bar, and hit enter or click “go”. If this does not work
   try 192.168.50.1 in the address bar this is the IP
   address of the modem.

5. You will be directed to the page viewed below. To
   retrieve your clearview user name and password
   locate the MACID on the bottom of the Clearaccess
   modem.
