Hopefully these instructions will work with the Linksys model you have. Power the router up by plugging in the power supply. Plug in an ethernet cable from your broadband modem to the port in the back of the router labled "internet". Plug in another ethernet cable from your computer to any one of the four numbered ports in the back of the router. Hit the reset button on the back of the router. You may need a sharp object like a pen or pencil to poke it. Reboot your computer. Open a web browser, such as Internet Explorer, and type in http:192.168.1.1. A window should pop up asking for a user name and a password. Don't enter a user name and type admin for the password. Hit ok. The router setup screen should come up. Click on the administration tab. Then click on the factory defaults sub-tab. The sub-tabs are in blue just below the normal tabs. Hit yes to restore factory defaults. Next click on the Wireless tab. You can rename and reconfigure your wireless network from this screen. Next click on the Wireless Security sub-tab. You can set up encryption on your wireless network using this screen. There are several different types of encryption. I believe WPA gives better security but I've had some trouble using it on older computers. I use WEP 128 bit encryption. I've been able to get this encryption scheme to work with all of my computers. FYI, the router setup can only be accessed through one of the cable ports. This stops outsiders from accessing you router setup over a wireless connection.

Hi leftella, First of all, I would like to ask you few questions. 1.Who is your ISP(Internet service provider) like verizon, Bell, Comcast? 2.How many ports you see at the back of the Modem?like WAN, Ethernet, LAN, DSL, Data? 3.How many ports you see at the back of the Router?like Internet,Ethernet,WAN, LAN? 4.What is the make and model of the laptop with which you want to go wireless?
To setup the router you don't need any CD, just need to connect the Modem to router and router to your computer with hard wire Initially and then after setup, you can go wireless.

Cant find my cd need to install


Here you can get your software:

http://homesupport.cisco.com/en-us/wireless/lbc/WRT54G

Please ensure you select the correct hardware version as not all downloads are compatible with your device.

Step 1:
Flip the device over.
Step 2:
You should find the model number on the sticker underneath the device. Please see the example.
Step 3:
Take note of the exact model number and version of your product. The serial number is located right underneath the model number. In this example, the model number of the device is M20.
NOTE: The images may vary depending on the exact model number of your Linksys Product. If there is no version number besides the model number it means that is version 1.

Hope this will help.

Connectivity


Hi Joe,

That just depends on how you want to connect with your laptop.
If you need wireless access, then you have to use the WRT54G, because the RT31P2 has no wireless capabilities.
If you are connected via ethernet cable, then you can simply take the WRT54G out.

If you like to read up on different scenarios, here is my favorite page.

Enjoy!

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:
