Re: f5d7230-4 router

These protocols are standardized and you don' t need to install anything on your Vista computer to access a LAN, whether it be wired or wireless... I suggest the a user NEVER install router software on any computer, let alone Vista..

If you can access the router config page via the DG (Default Gateway IP Address) then you are connecting to the LAN and should be able to connect to the WAN (internet).. Check your IP settings and make sure that you have a good DNS server address, as if you do not, then you won't be able to resolve friendly web names to the proper IP Addresses...

Re: f5d7230-4 router

The driver software that you are installing is probably not for vista

Try to download an updated version for vista

Can this router be used as an access point or range extender?

Yes it can you will have to get the ip address for it then go into setup and set to access point.

see generic setups

To open the set up page of the router of the router , one of your computer should be able to go online through the router.
It could be a wired computer or wireless computer.
If it is a wireless computer then make sure that the computer is connected to your own wireless network.
Do not change any wireless settings on the router using a wireless computer.
OK ! Now you have a computer online through the router and you want to open the set up page of the router.

First step is check the IP address of the computer.
Check the IP address and the Default gateway on the computer.

For Windows XP

START ==> RUN ==> type in cmd in the RUN box==> click OK or Hit ENTER . You will see a black window that is a command prompt . In the black window type in " ipconfig " ==> and Hit ENTER on your key board .

For Windows Vista and Windows 7

click on START ==> type in cmd in the start search box ==> enter ==> you will see the black window. Type in " ipconfig "you will see a lot of information. Try to find out the local area connection IPv4 address .

Note down the Default gateway number.


Click APPLE icon in the right top corner of the computer. Go to System Preferences ==> go to Network ==> you will find the option Built in Ethernet or Airport whichever is connected. If you go to that you will find the Ip address and router Address.

The default gateway is the IP address of your router.

This IP address of the router will be used to open the set up page of the router

Now you got the IP address of the router.Open the Internet Browser ( Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari )

In the Address bar of the browser Type the IP address of the router.

Do not type http:// or www just type in the IP address only.

It will ask you for the user name and the password of the router.

This is the User name and the password of the router and NOT the wireless password. On a wireless router, there are 2 passwords. One is to access the router and the other one is for the wireless network.

For most of the routers the default password will be " admin " . for some routers the default password is " password ". For Linksys router the default password is admin and no user name.

Lost internet connection via cable modem-router-tower

Alright, start with the basic Gateway IP. That is what i use to access my router's (yeah, we run just a few more computers than normal people) Anyways, If that doesnt work, then the router has been changed beyond a normal spectrum of Ip configurations. Next step is to recontact Linksys and Let them know directly that the IP Address for accessing the router is not working. Meaning you have no Access to the router at all. Almost all routers use the same base access router ip setup. Its rare to find different unless you are like a few people, who find they need to run at least 2 or more routers on the same internet connection because of too many computers.

Otherwise, follow this link:

After changing LAN IP, can not access setup page

If using DHCP, reboot your machine or release and renew the IP on the network card. If using static IP addresses, change the computer's IP address to match the new segment and remove the old default gateway and replace with the new LAN IP.
