I'll happily bow to your experience, Lance. I've always been told to set up the wireless side with a cable connection, so always have done. I'm good like that.  ;)

I'm going to differ Rik. If the router is defaulted with no security, you can connect to it, set up the security and reboot. At this point you will lose the wireless connection. Put the security settings onto the computer and then you will be able to reconnect.

Should the router have security on as default, you should be able to find these settings in the manual.

This is certainly how I set up my old linksys router, and my 2700HGV too!

That's exactly what happened.  Than I had to get the PC to look for the router again.
