3. Getting started
The ASUS WL-500W Wireless Router can meet various
working scenarios with proper configuration. The default
settings of the wireless router may change to meet your
individual needs. Thus, before using the wireless router,
check the basic settings to make sure they all work in your
environment.
ASUS provides a utility named EZSetup for fast wireless
configuration. If you would like to use EZSetup for your
router configuration, refer to chapter 6 of user manual in
support CD.
Note: Wired connection for initial configuration is
recommended to avoid possible setup problems
due to wireless uncertainty.
1) Wired connection
The WL-500W Wireless Router is supplied with an Ethernet
cable in the package. The wireless router has an integrated
auto-crossover function. Thus, you can either use a
straight-through or a crossover cable for wired connection.
Plug one end of the cable to the LAN port on the rear panel
of the router and the other end to the Ethernet port on your
PC.
2) Wireless Connection
For establishing wireless connection, you need an IEEE
802.11b/g compatible WLAN card. Refer to your wireless
adapter user manual for wireless connection procedures.
By default, the SSID of the wireless router is “default”
(in lower case), encryption is disabled and open system
authentication is used.
3) Setting IP address for wired or
wireless client
To access the WL-500W Wireless Router, you must have the
correct TCP/IP settings on your wired or wireless clients. Set
the IP addresses of the clients within the same subnet of WL500W.
Getting an IP address automatically
The WL-500W Wireless Router integrates DHCP server
functions, thus, your PC gets an IP address automatically.
Note: Before rebooting your PC, switch ON the
wireless router and make sure the router is ready.
WL-500W Wireless Router Quick Start Guide
Setting up the IP
address manually
To manually set the IP
address, you need to
know the default settings
of the wireless router:
• I P a d d r e s s
192.168.1.1
• S u b n e t M a s k
255.255.255.0
To set up the connection with a manually assigned IP
address, the address of
your PC and the wireless
router must be within the
same subnet:
• I P a d d r e s s :
192.168.1.xxx (xxx
can be any number
between 2 and 254.
Make sure the IP
address is not used by
other device)
• S u b n e t M a s k :
255.255.255.0 (same as WL-500W)
• Gateway: 192.168.1.1 (IP address of WL-500W)
• DNS: 192.168.1.1 (WL-500W), or assign a known DNS
server in your network.
4) Configuring the wireless router

PPPoE user
If you use PPPoE service, select ADSL connection
that requires username and password. It is known as
PPPoE. You need to input the username and password
provided by your ISP. Click Next to continue.

Static IP user
If you are using ADSL or other connection type that uses
static IP address, select ADSL or other connection type
that uses static IP address. Input the IP address, subnet
mask, and default gateway provided by your ISP. You can
specify DNS servers, or get DNS information automatically.
3. To set up your wireless interface, specify an SSID
(Service Set Identifier), which is a unique identifier
attached to packets sent over WLAN. This identifier
emulates a password when a device attempts to
communicate with your wireless router via WLAN.
WL-500W Wireless Router Quick Start Guide
If you want to protect transmitted data, select a Security
Level to enable encryption methods.
Medium: Only users with the same WEP key settings can
connect to your wireless router and transmit data using
64bits or 128bits WEP key encryption.
High: Only users with the same WPA pre-shared key
settings can connect to your wireless router and transmit
data using TKIP encryption.
4. Input four sets of WEP keys in the WEP Key fields (10
hexadecimal digits for WEP 64bits, 26 hexadecimal
digits for WEP 128bits). You can also let the system
generate the keys by inputting a Passphrase. Record the
Passphrase and the WEP keys in your notebook, then
click Finish.
For example, if we select WEP 64bits encryption mode
and input 11111 as the Passphrase, the WEP Keys are
generated automatically.
5. Click Save&Restart to restart the wireless router and
activate the new settings.
Note: We recommend using WL-100W wireless
adapters to connect WL-500W so as to achieve
high sped data transmission.
