How to install this Linksys wireless-G WRT54GS with a Mac?

Sheesh. I sure hopey you can help me. I just bought this at Fry's -- 50 miles away -- and the sales guy said, yes, yes, yes, it'll work with a mac. Yes, the CD inside will work with a mac. But now I open it up and the CD is USELESS with a mac. How can I get this router up and running? Linksys is NO help at all.
Thanks! I really appreciate ANY help you can give with this.

You can configure that router without using the bundle CD. the default ip address for that router is open internet explorer then type the ip address which is then the default username is "admin" (without " ") then password is "admin" also. then you are now on the linksys webpage and you can configure there. it is much easier to use rather than using the bundle CD.
hope this can help you!
good luck

How to find the MAC address of a Linksys WRT54GS wireless router

If you have a Linksys WRT54GS wireless router and you need to find its MAC address for some reason, this article will walk you through the process of obtaining the address through the router's web interface. Other methods may be used instead -- such as Windows Vista's Network Map or a third party utility. (The MAC address is also printed on a sticker on the bottom of most routers, but if the router is hidden behind a computer desk or trapped in a tangle of wires, using the web interface will probably be easier.)

First, open a web browser window and type in your router's local IP address (typically, and hit Enter. When prompted, type in your username and password to gain access to the router's interface.

Once you've logged in, the blue and black Linksys page will appear. Click on the Status tab (the last one on the right).

The MAC address is assigned to the network interface port inside the router, not to the actual router as a unit, so since the WRT54GS has two network interface ports (one for your local area network and one for access outside your network) it will therefore have two MAC addresses.

The MAC address for the port that connects to the wide area network or to your Internet service provider can be found under the Router heading beneath the Status tab. It will be listed below Firmware Version and Current Time, and it will appear as six pairs of letters and numbers separated by colons.

The other MAC address, the one for the local port, can be found under the Local Network heading, and it will be the first item listed there. Typically these two addresses will be very similar -- maybe separated by one or two digits.

Once in the routers home page check for updates and download and install.Also be sure any firewalls are not blocking the signal.

There is a possibility your lossing signal to outside intruder.
