Hi,

I have a wireless home network, I have already set up the wireless router successfully. I have used both the utility cd and the router's web page, to make sure everything is properly configured. and so far there are no problems.

when I open "network" window. I can see my router, all the devices connected to it, and "BELKIN WIRELESS ROUTER(WFA)". when I click it, it tells me to set up WCN.

so my question is do I still have to configure WCN?(windows connect now)

I use belkin wireless n router, and i connect my main desktop through wired.

thanks in advance.

Hi Cavedweller2,

I have two desktops. both running windows vista SP2.
the main desktop is wired to the router and the other desktop wirelessly, through a wireless usb adapter.

the laptops, running windows vista and other devices can connect to it with no problems.

i just need clarifications, whether I have to configure WCN. or it's not necessary because i already have set the router using it's web page and the utility cd that came with it.
