Usually use CD to go through easy install. (Skipping)
PC Configuration as per Installation Guide: Explore Variables,
“What Can Go Wrong…”
1. Many APs create a lot of noise
2. Some APs can manage over the wireless out of box but should only manage
through hardwired connection; DO NOT connect wirelessly to manage the router!
3. SSIDs are the same on all Linksys; we want to change in the beginning of the lab
4. All routers use the 192.168.1.1 address; reassign IP address based on what
given by speaker
**After changing SSID and IP, disconnect and reconnect to router
5. As long as SSIDs are changed, overlapping DHCP scope should not be a
problem
6. Some Windows desktops loose their network connections and/or SSID broadcast;
this is a Windows issue
7. WUSB clients CD out of the box does not work with VISTA; CD setups do not
work with Macintosh
8. Internet Explorer should be used for all the management
