Question about Computers & Internet
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:
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.
