    Great wireless On line Networking Guides requested


    Hello,

    I'm trying to set up a wireless router, so instead of bugging everyone with endless questions I was hoping to find a decent online guide/links.



    Please share any links that you think will help a wireless noob.



    Thanks.

    Well in order for anyone to help you we need more information:

    1. What wireless router is it? Every manufacturer has their own ways of doing things so 1 generic tutorial won't really help you much.

    2. Does your ISP require any specifics? (Ex. DSL ISP requires PPPoe username/password?) Static IP Address?

    3. What exactly do you want to do with it?

    Its actually easier if you bug us with questions. Thats the purpose of a forum, for others to help people in need. If someone doesn't want to help then they should either not respond and/or not participate in a forum.

    Well, I appreciate your generous spirit.

    The router is a D- link WBR 1310
    I have cable internet
    I have a mac mini (no airport card)
    I am running Tiger 10.4.8
    I currently have a Linksys BEFSR41

    I am trying to get ready for Christmas- I bought a Nintendo Wii for my daughter.
    I want things ready to roll in advance.

    Any information regarding OSX system prefs needing attention would also be nice.

    I will search the forum for relevant information.

    Thanks

    I'll check out port forward.
