Hi there, and welcome to FixYa 
Connect the pc with a cable to any of the four LAN connections on the back of the router.
DO SET THE ADMIN password as the first thing you do.
goto -> administration -> management, fill out the router password and reenter it to confirm.
Give your network a name (SSID) so that you can find yours if there is more around you. Network name are called SSID, short for service set identifier
goto -> wireless -> basic wireless settingsWireless Network Mode : set to mixed,  
Wireless Network Name (SSID), set a name well known to you, NOT your address :-)
now set the  Wireless Channel :  to any other than channel 6, which is the one everybody use. Too much electrical noise might interfere with your transmitting. 
Now, go to Wireless -> Wireless connection, to set the Encryption security settings.
Set security mode to WEP,
Set the Transmit key to your choice, if you know that you wireless card has 4 keys as well, I would use key 4.
Set WEP encryption to: 128 bit 26 hex digits.
Go down to key 4, and find combination of numbers and the letters a, b, c, d, e or f.
(ex. 414243444546474849404a4b4c) = 26 hex digits. 
Save settings.
Now, before you leave, WRITE DOWN your SSID, your password and key 4 with your settings, as you need to set your wireless card with the same settings.
Start -> settings -> network and right click your wireless connection and click properties.
At the top, choose Wireless network, find your network, (your SSID) choose properties and set these settings as you wrote down from the router.
Now, remove the cable and logon wireless.

/Teis
Do let me know how you are getting along.

SOURCE: adding wireless

for a dsl connection, what you need to do is check first the ip address of the router that you have or the mpdem that is given by your internet service provider. if it has an ip address of 192.168.1.X, then you need to change the ip address of the linksys router to 192.168.2.1 or 10.10.10.1. how to check the ip address? just connect your pc to the device and then open your command prompt, type "ipconfig" then click enter.. just look for the ip address.. also, if it doesn't work, then just set your modem to full bridge mode, your internet service provider will know about that.

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.

Lost Install Disk


You don't need the install disk to use the router. If you plug in the router and press the reset button on the back of the router, the you should be able to connect to the network using only the windows wireless program.

Where can I get another installation CD?


You more than likely do not need an installation CD to get this router running. For what it's worth, you can download specs, firmware upgrades, etc from the following link:

http://www.linksys.com/servlet/Satellite?c=L_CASupport_C2&childpagename=US%2FLayout&cid=1166859761879&packedargs=sku%3DWRT54GS&pagename=Linksys%2FCommon%2FVisitorWrapper&lid=6187945678B01&displaypage=download#versiondetail

Hope this helps.

Need driver


Routers don't actually have drivers. Linksys provides some software that can make the installation a bit easier, but no driver is required (or exists).

The Linksys website has some good instructions on installing and setting up their products. I would begin there or if you can give me more details on what problem you're having I would be happy to help.
