You should be able to get any software that you need from LinkSys.com but I have a couple of quick questions first:

1. Is the LinkSys unit you just purchased a router or modem?

If the unit is a router, you are still going to need a Cox compatible modem. If the unit is a modem, you will still need a router to complete the network setup unless LinkSys makes a combination cable router/modem, and I haven't been able to research one.

2. If it is a modem, is it a cable modem and, if it is, is it Cox compatible?

According to the Cox Web Site, the only models of LinkSys modems that are currently compatible with the Cox High Speed Cable Internet Service are:

BEFCMU10 v3
BEFCMU10 v4
WCG200
WCG200 v2
CM100

In this particular case, you may need to contact LinkSys and/or your Internet Service Provider. In most cases, they will not only tell you exactly what type of equipment you need, they will also talk you through setting up the network once you have the equipment - usually at no charge.

No software needed:
With the router powered on, press and hold the reset button located at the back for 10 - 15 seconds.
Connect the Computer to the Router using the ethernet cable to one of the four labeld ports.
On the computer, open Internet Explorer and at the address bar type : 192.168.1.1 and hit the Enter on the keyboard.
A pop-up asking for username / password, leave the username blank and key-in admin in the password field and click Login.
Since you're on COX, locate and click MAC Address Clone.
Next, press Clone Your PC's MAC button then click Save Settings button at the bottom.
Now connect the Cable Modem to the Router using another ethernet cable to the port labeled Internet (beside/near the power adaptor port).
Your'e all set.

Bought wireless router without software


ec1.images-amazon.com/media/i3d/01/.../MANUAL000000300.pdf

Yo do NOT need special software, you simply access the unit via the Ethernet port and a Browser. It is all shown how to do it in the manual above.
You log into the router by typing in it's address and a default log on and password, Then you setup your connection, as i said please use the manual.
You need your Logon details and your password for your INTERNET connection,

I need the software for my F5D7230-4 BELKIN


Are you trying to set up router ?
You can set up your router manually, without the
CD.
Make sure that your computer is able to go online
directly through the modem.
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.
open the set up page of the router and change the
settings of the router according to the ISP.

Slow or intermittent wireless/then disconnected


thats not enough info. it could be a dead router, too much interface, incorrect settings. try the router at your friend's house. if it works then its not your router. download a software called network stumbler, install it, to run it in vista right click it and click run as administrator. find the channels your router and other routers in the neighborhood are using. if they are the same then its an interference issue and if not then your router has incorrect settings.

Where does the phone line go in the lynksys box.


Phone Line?

You need a cable or dsl modem to connect to the internet. From the modem you run an ethernet cable to the "broadband" or "Internet" port of your router.
Also make sure your lynksys is a router, not a switch


Hope this helps

Lynksis wrt150n .. setting


Log in to your router and select the wireless tab. Then click on wireless security. Set your security mode, encryption type and create a key that will be needed to connect to the router wirelessly. Administration tab should be right next to status tab.

Wont connect and software cd


To connect a router or a dsl modem to a switch you either have to use port 4 or use a utp crossover cable. As you can see on the Netgear FS605 the modem/router has to be connected to port 4.

The correct way to connect these devices is:

Modem > Router > Switch > Computers
