- Connect the wireless router and computer by a cable.
- In the URL field enter (without the quotes):*"192.168.1.1"*
In the graphical user interface (G.U.I.) there *should* be a section labeled
*"wireless security"* or something like it. What do you see there?

In the PCLinuxOS please check and see what the wireless security encryption
is set to. As a *temporary* work-around, I reccomend disabling the
encryption on the wireless router.
