Hi Jwsgrl,

Did you buy the router new or used?

if used it might still have the old user settings on it that sometimes requires MAC addy's to be registered on the wireless access point site ( If this is the case then hit the restart button while the router is on to default all settings.

the default login and pw for linksys is:
User Name: admin
Password: admin

You probably already have it set up since you followed the instructions but it never hurts to mention:
1. Make sure that your modems Ethernet line is connected to your wireless router Ethernet port, then using the 1 of 4 open jacks on the router connect #1 to your computers Ethernet Pprt.

let me know how i can assist you further.

Go here to get the driver for this router. Find the driver in the list according to the exact model number of your router as there are quite a few WRT54G versions. Then click download and follow the instruction on the download page.

Lost wireless router CD

You can make the router working even without using the CD. Who is your ISP? Are you having concern with wired or wireless connection?

After installing cd the window that pops up has no tabs to click

You do not need to install the CD that comes with the router. After plugging in the router, simply connect to the wireless network by clicking Start>Connect To. Click Linksys. Click Connect

Installing linksys wrt54g


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.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

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:

Hope this helps.
