The easiest method of resetting your Linksys router's password is to reset your router back to the default factory settings. This is done by simply holding down the reset button located on the back of the unit for at least 30 seconds. Once the router has been reset, it must be reconfigured. Using your web browser go to URL address http://192.168.1.1. You will then be prompted to login to your router. A log-in screen asking for the password will automatically appear. At this time enter the default password "admin", in lower case letters into the password field. The username field may be left blank at this time. (Note: both the default username and default password are set to "admin" on some of the newer Linksys router models).
Router setup If you are using the cd that comes with the router, that is the problem. You do not have to use the cd. Go to the control panel and un-install the program that the cd installed. then:
in another computer attempt tocreate an image file of your driver cd as you mentioned you still haveit (I strongly suggest you don't lose it), then with a usb thumb drivemove that image into the computer where you want to run the wizard (the one that does not have the cd drive working). now for you to create an image iso file on the othercomputer (virtual image of your cd) you need nero or magiciso oranother program to create iso files from a cd, now to read that imageon your cd-trayless computer you can use a program called magic disc.
there are other programs you can use to make iso image files that are free
free alternatives to nero magic disc- this is free and it will create a virtual cd drive on your computerwithout cd drive, you just need to mount the iso file you created withthe other programs and it will work like a cd drive so you caninstallation cd without ever inserting the actual cd.
it should be an ip conflict.I believe you are using both routers at same time which can give same ip address (as both routers ip range is same).hence by disconnecting one router(from network/power) will make your ip conflict resolved.
secondly there is no need of linksys installation cd as it will do more harm than good.routers dont need any software to run where as network adapters need drivers.if you have any further doubts ,you can directly post it.
The quickest/easiest is to boot your PC attached to the modem through an Ethernet cable without the WRT54G. Pop in the CD installer and allow the installer program to run. Closely follow on screen instructions. At some point you would be asked to reboot and connect the LinkSys using another Ethernet cable. Once rebooted, the program will auto configure the router and you should be be able to use it. Of course the PC must be set to "Auto Obtain IP Address".
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
