If that is the case you must do a hard reset first. Hold the reset button at the back of the router for 30 seconds then unplug the power for 30 seconds and plug it back in. Make sure your computer is connected to port 1 and your modem is connected to internet port of the router. Try to set it up again.

Are you trying to set up router ?
You can set up your router manually, without the CD.
Make sure that your computer is able to go online directly through the modem.
If your computer is able to go online through the modem, that means the modem is working fine.
You will need to connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router.
open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.

If not then connect the computer to the router.

Try to connect to the wireless network. Check if you see the new network name ? If you see the new then try t connect and see if that works.
