I've recently purchased a Netgear wireless router and would like to set it up at home to connect my computers via wireless with each other. When I access the wireless router the first time to configure it, it tries to establish an internet connection with the modem first before it allows me to interact with it. I don't have an active internet connection at the moment.
Is there any way that I can still set up my wireless home network?
I did connect to the router via 192.168.1.1 as the manual suggested and via wire. The setup then proceeds to looking for an active internet connection and won't let me do anything else until a connection is found (except for abort. Thank you, Netgear.) I'm on a Windows (7/XP) environment. The router is a Netgear WGR614GR Wireless Cabel/DSL Router.
