HP Digital Home Networking - Setting Up and Installing the Wireless Gateway

Introduction
Follow the instructions in this document to set up the Wireless Gateway and install the software. The information in this document can also be found in a more condensed format in the "Quick Start Guide" which shipped with the Gateway.
Before you begin
  1. Verify that all of the box components are included.
    • One Wireless Gateway
    • One installation and documentation CD-ROM
    • One AC Power Adapter
    • One quick start guide
    • One warranty sheet
    • One Ethernet cable, if included (some models do not include the Ethernet cable. If yours did not ship with one, you will need to purchase one separately).
  2. Confirm that:
    • The computers you intend to connect to the Gateway are all either running Windows 98, 98SE, Me, 2000, or XP (Windows 2000 and XP Professional require administrative privileges to install this software -- see your user documentation for details).
    • Each computer has a CD-ROM drive.
    • Each computer to be wirelessly connected to your network has a wireless network adapter (internal or external) installed.
    • A broadband (DSL or cable) modem has been installed and is connected to one of the computers via an Ethernet cable.
  3. To avoid conflicts, uninstall or disable any connection-sharing software, such as 3COM HomeClick, Microsoft(R) Internet Connection Sharing (ICS), Intel Anypoint ISS, or proxy software such as WinGate, Sygate, or other similar applications. You no longer need this type of application when you install the Wireless Gateway.
    To uninstall a program:
    1. Select Start, Settings, then ControlPanel.
    2. Double-click Add/Remove Programs.
    3. Select the connection-sharing or proxy software application to be removed.
    4. Click Add/Remove, then click Yes.
