To set up a wireless network you will first need to install a router. There are two main types of routers available today. They are either managed or unmanaged. Managed routers are easier to setup than unmanaged ones. In order to set up a managed router you just plug it into an electrical outlet and follow the instructions provided by the manufacturer. Unmanaged routers require more technical knowledge and skills. You will need to configure the settings manually. See also other issues here as well as here.
