Hello Matthew, tks for your prompt response. In my hurry I overlooked the last item on the double folded Cisco quick installation guide: Linksys Wireless Router.which gives t: he following instruction "Wireless Connection to your PC: The setup wizard will guide you through the steps to install Cisco Network Magic on your computer. When the Network Tasks screen appears, click Go Wireless, and cisco Network Magic will help you create a wireless connection between the Router and your computer. Then follow the on-screen instructions. My dilemma now is to find out if I am going to ruin the router if I repeat the entire installation without deleting what is already in the system. So much for a question from a voluable novice. Regards, Ruth
