Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54GS Router (e125894)
My CD drive on my PC is busted. Have been avoiding buying new PC = recession and all. I bought a router - linksys WRT54G2 - can I set up without the CD enclosed in the box. I do not want to get a new PC as yet, but need to set up router to set up other equipment I need to test for work.
You do not have to use the cd. Follow these instructions:
Shutdown your PC. Unplug the power from the router and the cable modem.
Wait 30 sec. then plug in the power to the cable modem, wait 30 sec. then plug the power to the router. Wait till you have "Internet" light then restart your PC. The PC should pick up an IP address and you should be able to get on-line. This is if you have a cable service provider. If you have DSL, the router needs to be configured with PPOe.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.

Tips for a great answer:
If the lights of the router are on (Power, DSL, Internet) are on, and on of them is blinking, you might need to rest the router. There is a recessed button on the back press it for at least 30 seconds and this will reset the router. Also, on your lower right hand corner of your computer look for an icon showing two monitors click it and see what the connection says.
