If you have DHCP installed in automatic mode just connect to router and everything will work.

If you use manual configuration then make sure that all your PC(s) in the same sub-network. Address should like that: 192.168.(same number for all PCs).xxx (192.168.1.xxx, xxx can be from 1 up to 254, and this number should be different for all PCs).

Also make sure that you PCs are in the same workgroup (win+Pause->Computer Name->Change). If you have to change the workgroup name you will have to restart your PC(s) after that.

After that press Start->Run. In run print "cmd". In cmd ping and (ans so on). It will check connection with itself and with another PC.

How do you install and configure Ethernet adapters in the computers of testing team?

Just like you would if you were configuring a laptop or desktop computer with an internal wireless card. Don't use the "Install" disk as 98 percent of consumer wireless Routers, adapters, etc, don't need it to "set it up". It just to use the extras they have. Just get the IP number and password from the manual to access the Adapter. Any web browser should work. Configure the computer as using Ethernet and then configure the Adapter. Just hook the Ethernet cable between the Adapter and computer and just configure it like you would any other wireless computer. If you already have a wireless computer it would be easier to use that one and just copy the settings over to it. Or just look at the router settings. Follow the manual instructions as each one is different. Basially, make sure DHCP is on and you spell the the "Network Name"(SSID), "Security/Encryption" (WPA/WPA2, etc) and "Password" EXACTLY. It is case sensitive.
