Your wired network adapter will talk to a wired router without a driver for the router on your computer. Your wireless adapter likewise will talk to your wireless router without a driver for the wireless router on your computer. Your wired and wireless adapters however do require drivers and the wireless adapter can require configuration. Please provide the manufacturer and model of your computer so I can learn about your wireless adapter and we can work to get it connected to the router.

Do you currently have your router connected to your internet service providers connection and do you have another wired or wireless computer successfully using this device to access the internet?

Linksys BEFW11S4-RM 4 port wireless router

This is an old router. Look at the power light. You must have a STEADY power light. RESET the BEFW11s4 by pushing the reset button for 30seconds. Unplug the power of the BEFW11s4 for 30 seconds. Connect pc to port 2 or 3. pc should get an ip of 192.168.1.x. If you are getting this ip that means that the pc is already detecting the router.

Good Day

Need driver

Routers don't actually have drivers. Linksys provides some software that can make the installation a bit easier, but no driver is required (or exists).

The Linksys website has some good instructions on installing and setting up their products. I would begin there or if you can give me more details on what problem you're having I would be happy to help.
