In my mind, which caused my confusion over the Aztech Wireless Router Easy Start Guide, the web browser only works when the computer is connected to the internet. Without installing & using my new wireless router, how was I supposed to go on the internet? I thought it was some kind of advanced instructions. Little did I know that going to 192.168.1.1 on the web browser without being connected to the internet is part of the wireless router installation process! Hence, I waited for the next day to speak to the Aztech technician named Craven about how to install the wireless router. Below I shall include my experience of installing the Aztech Wireless Router with his help for your convenience.
Installing the Wireless Broadband Router WL830RT4
• Open your web browser
• Type in 192.168.1.1 as the url address on the blank space top of the browser
• You will then see a password request.
• Key in User Name: admin
• Key in Password: admin
• The IP address in the WAN section under Status page should be showing some numbers other than all zeroes or else some cables are loose between your router & modem or not switched on.
• Once done, you can key in the 10 alpha numeric password to secure your wireless home network by going to the wireless setting. Note: use the 64 bit key type for a 10 alpha numeric password, 128 bit for a 32 alpha numeric password, & 152 bit for a 72 alpha numeric password. I suggest for you to go with 64 bit because it will be easier to key-in the password into other computers in your wireless network in the future.
Thereafter, other laptops to be included in your wireless network are easy work & should be as easy as switching on the wireless & key-in the password. The range indoors using 802.11b/g Dell laptops (Dell offer the best wireless feature as compared to Compaq & IBM) are excellent within about 30m radius, maintaining the maximum speed of the 54mbps connection. It's just as fast as using an ADSL direct connection to my Tmnet Streamyx ISP!
Note* It is recommended that you use a surge protector & unplug your electronic equipment from the power socket (including phone lines) during a thunderstorm.*
I would certainly recommend the Aztech 802.11b/g Wireless Broadband Router WL830RT4 for you folks who need a wireless network at home & do not want to use the pricey 802.11n compatible equipment just yet. Its only about $45 (RM 143) including courier within West Malaysia. You can try FMC technologies on 3rd floor of Ampang Point as surely they can give you a cheaper price because you do not need to pay for courier which costs RM 8. The Aztech 802.11b/g Wireless Broadband Router WL830RT4 is by far among the cheapest & splendid performing Wireless Broadband Router you can find in the market!
