Linksys Model WRG2 - Can't run installation CD


I just bought a wireless router and am trying to set it up. I put the CD in, double clicked on the icon and got the error message: runtime error object was unloaded. I also tried going to my "start" button, selecting "run" and typed in D:setup.exe and got the same error message. I am running Norton and am not sure if that is preventing me from setting up my wireless? Can you help me? Thanks.

How to install a wireless router without installation CD

To connect to your wireless router, the router's wirelesssettings needs to be configured with the SSID, encryption etc. and also thewireless cards in all the laptops/computers needs to be configured with theserouter's wireless settings. Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicatewith your wireless router.
Connect a LAN cable from the Linksys to the LAN port on your computer.
Open a browser and enter the Linksys configuration URL
The default login = admin

UNABLE TO GET SETUP WIZARD TO RUN, I get a prompt that says use win 2000 or win xp to run setup, everytime I try to run it the screens goes back to the same prompt

Are you trying to set up the router.
You can do it manually without the CD.
Make sure that your computer is able to go online through the modem.
If your computer is not able to go online through the modem then you will need to call ISP first.
If your computer is able to go online through the modem
then you need to connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router.

Wireless network using usb modem

First thing that you have to do is to check if the wireless light on your linksys wrt150N is lit. If it is, then that means that it is emitting wireless signal so you can connect wirelessly.

Then, install your verizon usb mobile broadband card on your desktop. When you plug it to the usb port, a pop up balloon would show on your page which would say FOUND NEW HARDWARE. you could click on it and choose the CD-drive to install OR you can run the cd and have it install on itself.

After installing the usb, try to connect to your wireless network. Start > Connect to > and then click on the name of your wireless network.
