Setup

There are two ways you can setup the WNCE2001. The first is through the use of WPS (Wireless Protected Setup). If you have that option already enabled in your home network then things are pretty simple. You push the WPS button on the WNCE2001 until the light blinks amber and green. Then you push the WPS button on your router. From there it should automatically set itself up and you are off and running.

The second way is a little more involved, but still pretty simple. With this method you need to connect it to a PC. Once the drivers are installed then you open up a browser. Once you open the browser it is going to ask you a couple of questions about language preference and location.

After that it saves that information for later and you get into the meat of the setup. Again, it is pretty simple as it walks you through connecting the WNCE2001 to an existing wireless network.

The next thing you are greeted with is a survey of nearby wireless access points. It is up to you to pick the one you want.

The next page is where you put in the security key, if there is one.

After another few minutes of viewing a progress bar you are given a recap of what you put in. I was a little disappointed to see the WPA password in plain text on the screen. This raises some concerns about the security of the WNCE2001.
