The basic settings for wireless networking are set on this screen.
Wireless Network Mode. From this drop-down menu, you can select the wireless standards running on your
network. If you have both 802.11g and 802.11b devices in your network, keep the default setting, Mixed. If you
have only 802.11g devices, select G-Only. If you have only 802.11b devices, select B-Only. If you do not have any
802.11g and 802.11b devices in your network, select Disable.
Wireless Network Name (SSID). The SSID is the network name shared among all devices in a wireless network.
The SSID must be identical for all devices in the wireless network. It is case-sensitive and must not exceed 32
characters (use any of the characters on the keyboard). Make sure this setting is the same for all devices in your
wireless network. For added security, you should change the default SSID (linksys) to a unique name.
Wireless Channel. Select the appropriate channel from the list provided to correspond with your network
settings. All devices in your wireless network must be broadcast on the same channel in order to function
Wireless SSID Broadcast. When wireless clients survey the local area for wireless networks to associate with,
they will detect the SSID broadcast by the Router. To broadcast the Router's SSID, keep the default setting,
Enable. If you do not want to broadcast the Router's SSID, then select Disable.
