    Someone just gave me a router and booster. The model numbers are WS 824 for the booster, and WAP11 for the router. The problem is that that's all I got. No power cords, or anything else. What would it take to get this system up and running?

    Is the WS824 a Linksys product?

    You will need at least a power adapter for each device and a network cable for the WAP11 to connect to a switch/hub. However, it is not a router - it's an Access Point.

    power cords for the devices and thats pretty much it.

    Cords are pretty useless on their own without the corresponding power adapters :biggrin:

    Yes they are both Linksys products. Where do I get the cords or whatever they are? Yes it does say that it's an access point. I don't claim to know a lot about this sort of thing.

    It's not WS824, but WSB24 :sad:

    You should be able to purchase power adapters for either device from Linksys - the cords are standard 2-wires AC cables that you can get from some computer stores. Failing that, get 2 universal power adapters and set them according to the output power rating and polarity shown on each device.

    By the way, more info about WSB24 and the cables you need to hook up to the WAP11 can be found here:
