You should be able to go to your web browser on your PC and type in 192.268.0.1 (that works for Linksys I think) and get to the router configuration screen.


It's 192.168.0.1


Thanks! Sorry about that.

Yes you can get to the configuration page without having run the setup disk.

Another really stupid question and I'm just gonna throw it out there.
Since the Wii is wireless, you need a wireless router to send the internet signal to the Wii, correct?

You can buy a wired connection if you like.

With wireless routers, can you use wired connections and wireless connections at the same time? Or is it one or the other?

Problem with that scenario is I only have one 50ft ethernet available running from the router to the Xbox 360. I wouldn't want to run another 50ft ethernet cable to my console station.

Hence the "Wireless". Convenient isn't it.
