Internet connection I am trying to set up this router with my new computer which is running windows vista 64bit. As i go through the setup on the CD that came with the router, i get to the stage where it asks me to connect the modem to the router and then connect my computer to the router. However it can not find a connection to the internet when i do this. How do i install the router to work on vista ???

Re: Internet connection

Ok I have done it a little different sometimes... try this approach... First connect up the DSL Modem to the PC via Ethernet.. Configure the modem from the PC using the Connect to the Internet Wizard... enter all ya ISP details Logon, Password etc. Once this is going OK.. Disconnect the Modem... and then connect it up to the "Router" using the "Uplink" port and when connect ya Modem to the router... then connect another Ethernet cable from Router to same port on ya PC. Then simply use the network setup Wizard to set up an Internet Connection and connect up via ya router thru ya modem... generally works for me....

Make sure you have ipx and spx protocol installed, and a home network setup through windows. Also if the first try don't work make sure you firewall setting is not blocking your router.

How do i set it up manually?

Connect an Ethernet cable to one of the Lan ports,
and to the network-card in a computer (running Windows XP or Vista or 7).

Via Internet Explorer, access the web-interface "inside" the router,
and run the "Network Setup Wizard", and run the "Wireless Setup Wizard".

That's all -- there is nothing dependent on "Windows 7".

During setup of the wireless system (under Windows Vista) it cannot save the parametrs and I cannot continue with the Installation. Any Help?

Are you trying to set up the router or you are trying to connect to the wireless network ?
I think you are running the set up CD for the router.
If you are trying to add windows vista to the network and
If your router is already set up and you are able to go online on another computer then you don't need to run the CD again.
If you are trying to set up the router then you can do it manually also.
