We just bought a tew-432 router and had the network secured at the store. The tech told us not to install the disk in the box or we would undo everything he just did. Then how do I get it to work if I don't install something? How do I get my pc to recognize the network he setup for us?

Launch the Wireless Configuration Utility by clicking on the icon in your notifications are. Click on the site survey link to view available wireless networks. Select your network and click Connect. If you have secured your wireless network you will be prompted to enter in the encryption key. Enter it and click Apply. You will now be connected to the wireless network and the parameters will be saved under the profile link.
The key number should be on the bottom of your router. That, or log into its administration page (username and password is also on the bottom of the router) and look for the wireless security settings.
Sounds like you may be having an issue with software already installed on the laptop to control the wireless connection. Many laptops have preinstalled software for their internal wireless devices. You should consult your manual about configuring and saving passwords for a network for that particular device. Typically you will need to enter the WEP key in the software itself.
You don't need to install anything extra to secure the network. It's a matter of changing router settings. You set up the router through your web browser by going to "http://192.168.0.1" which accesses the device's setup screens.
There are several revisions of this product. Here is the URL for D-Link's selection page for the router:
Click on the picture that shows the version you have, and then you'll be taken to the page for that version. You can download a manual or look through the FAQ's which will guide you through the process of setting up the security.
So after finding out that the firmware doesn't have an update, searching the web and asking tech support at my ISP, i still didn't know what the problem was.So i called Telkom (our only telecomunications provider) waited on the line for nearly 45min to hear that they also didn't know. I finally got put through to the people than install the ADSL and he just said. "I'll just activate the line for you ,ok?" And i'm thinking WTF!!!!! He explained that although there was a connection, and i recieved an IP and all that, the datatransfer was not activated. He pressed one button!!! Why my ISP couldn't tell me that i don't know. 5min later everything is working fine.
I had this same problem. I was going to go ahead and call ATT and ask them to put my modem into bridge mode, but I messed around a bit more....
I went ahead and turn on PPPoE...tried to run the set up again. Well it worked. Not the internet connection is working through the modem. For some reason, the setup changed PPPoE back to DHCP Client, but it's working now. Give this a shot before calling ATT if you like. Good luck.
