WL-520g Quick Start Guide

3. Configuring the Wireless Router

Note: 1) Before you start, we recommend using a wired connection for initial
configuration, which will avoid possible setup problem due to wireless uncertainty.
2) ASUS also provides an EZSetup button for fast wireless configuration. If you
prefer EZSetup to arrange for your wireless network configuration, please refer to
chapter 6 of WL520g user's manual included in the support CD.
The ASUS Wireless Router can be configured to meet various usage scenarios. Some
of the factory default settings may suit your usage; however, others may need changing.
Prior to using the ASUS Wireless Router, you must check the basic settings to guarantee
it will work in your environment. Configuring the ASUS Wireless Router is done through a
web browser. You need a Notebook PC or desktop PC connected to the ASUS Wireless
Router (either directly or through a hub) and running a web browser as a configuration
terminal. The connection can be wired or wireless. For the wireless connection, you need
an IEEE 802.11g/b compatible device, e.g. ASUS WLAN Card, installed in your Notebook
PC. You should also disable WEP and set the SSID to "default" for your wireless LAN
device. If you want to configure the ASUS Wireless Router or want to access the Internet
through the ASUS Wireless Router, TCP/IP settings must be correct. Normally, the TCP/
IP setting should be on the IP subnet of the ASUS Wireless Router.
Note: Before rebooting your computer, the ASUS Wireless Router should be
switched ON and in ready state.

1) ASUS Wireless Router Wired Connection

One RJ-45 cable is supplied with the ASUS Wireless Router. Auto crossover function is
designed into the ASUS Wireless Router so you can use either straight-through or crossover
Ethernet cable. Plug one end of the cable into the WAN port on the rear of the ASUS
Wireless Router and the other end into the Ethernet port of your ADSL or Cable modem.
Note: If configuration is done via wired connection, ignore this.
Refer to your wireless adapter user's manual on associating with the ASUS Wireless
Router. The default SSID of the ASUS Wireless Router is "default" (lower case),
encryption is disabled and open system authentication is used.
2) Setting IP address for Wired or
Wireless Connection
Get IP Automatically
The ASUS Wireless Router incorporates a
DHCP server so the easiest method is to set
your PC to get its IP address automatically and
reboot your computer. So the correct IP address,
gateway, DNS (Domain Name System Server)
can be obtained from the ASUS Wireless Router.
