Hello I've given up on Belkin wireless networking products, as recommended by some people on here, and have moved onto NetGrear. Just received the: Netgear RangeMax NEXT Wireless ADSL2+ Modem Router: Model DG824N I've managed to set-up the basic - ie. get onto the net. I've looked under the Basic Settings - and the encapsulation (whatever that means) is to "PPPoA (PPP over ATM)" - Now in the past, I've been told by BT and by Belkin to set encapsulation as "PPPoE (PPP over Ethernet)" Does it matter which one i use? Also... Why is Netgear set to channel 6 and all the others i've had have been set to channel 11? - again, does it matter what channel? Finally - How to I set-up security on this modem router? In Belkin - it had WEP - which just didn't allow my Mac to join the network - but listed under the Wireless Tab > Wireless Settings > Security Options are two options: NONE or WPA-PSK[TKIP] + WPA2-PSK[AES]. Thanks in advance for helping a novice newbie. I really appreciate all the help given.
