This video is part of a broader set of videos that cover all aspects of home network setup and configuration. This particular lesson comes from section 2, which covers Home Networking Hardware Installation.

The lessons in this section are:
*Installing the Router - this lesson
*Installing the USB Adapter -
*Installing the PCI Card Adapter -
*Installing the PC Card Adapter -

In this lesson, we connect the router to the modem, reset the modem so it can see the router and they can connect to each other. We connect our home office computer to the router using an ethernet cable. We'll use this computer in Section 3 to configure the router.

This video goes on to cover:
*Placement of the router for best wireless signal reception throughout the house
*Connecting the router to the computer and modem

In section 3 we will configure the router using this desktop computer, but first lets get all the other computers ready for the network by installing the wireless network adapters.
