The news about Harry Potter‘s actor Daniel Radcliffe getting admission to Princeton University majoring in magic has been widely spread through The Daily Princetonian. I’ve been also looking forward to having such an opportunity to study magic with Harry, and lots of people will have fun studying in this prestigious magic school. Don’t you think so? 🙂

Set Up Wireless Router at Home

August 12, 2007 Leave a comment

This basic instruction is only for setting up a wireless network at apartment using TRENDnet wireless router. Actually, I didn’t know what other options really mean while setting up wireless network by myself because it’s really little time consuming. Anyway, it should be enough for a beginner (hope so 🙂 ).

Here is the PDF file showing the settings for an invisible mode. The router’s model is DIR-615 Wireless N 300.

  1. Install the required software from the CD in the package of wireless router.
  2. Use Internet Browser to log on to set up everything about router. Usually wireless can be accessible when the router is connected with cable directly. If wireless isn’t connected, then also connect the computer with the router using another cable.
  3. The default administrator’s login name and password are: “admin”, password: “admin”. Similarly, the default user’s name is “user”.
  4. The password for administrator who controls the wireless router’s settings can be changed at “Main –> Password”. (Remark: This password is the not for other people who can see this wireless signal to get access to internet).
  5. The name appeared on the list of wireless signals (which is SSID) can be changed at “Wireless –> Basic”.
  6. The password for accessing this wireless signal you just set up can be changed at “Wireless –> Security”. Then, choose the “Authentication Type” to be “WPA2” or “WPA”, and “Passphrase” is the the password for other people to surf Internet using the wireless network you set up. (Of course, one can also change the authentication type there)
