This page has all the information and links for downloading all the drivers (software) you'll need to set this up at home. It even gives complete pictures of what to hook up where - it makes using it so easy!

Seriously, this was the first wireless router I've ever used, and the Linksys site made it completely do-able.

That link has downloads for all the information, even PDF files for your router. You just have to choose the version (and the page will show you exactly where to find the version for your router on the label at the back).

Good luck, and post again if this doesn't work for you - merry Christmas!

Generally routers have firmware that can be downloaded and updated occasionally and can be configured from a browser such as Internet Explorer and have documentation and the like on a CD. Any applications on the CD are generally not required -- they may be alternative configuration tools. Sometimes routers support wired access using a USB port which may require drivers - this is not one of those routers. Wireless adapters (USB or PCI, or built-in) generally require software on the computer not provided as part of the router it is provided with the adapter and can often be downloaded.

The manuals on the following link require Adobe Reader (free). If needed it can be gotten at the following link using the Get Adobe Reader button

The information including solutions from the linksys website can be found at the following link. There is an updating firmware link at the bottom of the page that explains what to do with the firmware. You may want to bookmark this in your browser for future reference

click "Click Here" under downloads
Select your router version as indicated
Access the downloads as required.

The GPL code is for programmers or the curious.

Then remainder of the downloads are probably documentation / manuals. ( I did not review all versions)

How to configure a router is a more difficult issue. In some cases your internet service provider may have requirements that must be gotten from their support site. If you provide the name or support site for your internet service provider I may be able to assist in determining those requirements. Unless you are willing to share your internet connections with others around your home consideration should be made to secure the wireless communications. To do that will require knowing about the wireless adapters to be attached to the wireless router. This information will be based on the manufacturer and model of the adapters or computer with a built in adapter you will need to provide.

Please respond to this problem with the additional information requested and I will attempt to provide the next steps to setting up your router for use. There may be more questions before an answer is possible.

I can't remember my password when I run the setup disc for my router. It's a lynksys WRT54G

Almost every consumer router has a 'reset' button that is inside a small hole on the back of the router. It is labelled 'reset' and typically needs to be held in with something like a paper clip gently inserted and held for about ten seconds with the power on. Sometimes there are variations on this theme that are in the manual.

Almost every consumer router is supported on he manufacturers web site. Most of them have online manuals that can be viewed on the site or downloaded and read on your computer in a PDF.

You go to the manufacturers web site and enter the model number into a search box. Poke around until you find the manual and browse to the factory rest section.

Connect my Lynksys WRT54G2 Router with my Belkin (F5D6231-4)

You can connect 2 routers to each other. But the IP address will be different for both the routers .
It will be better to keep different names for the wireless network.
If you keep the same name, then it doesn't mean that the signal strength will be good. Because both the routers will broadcast their own signals.
If you want to increase the signal strength then you can purchase a wireless range expander.

Please open your router page and open the DMZ page give an IP address.
Then open X-box page and force the same ip address it will allow your x-box to communicate with the router.

Have you set up your lynksys to allow wireless QoS? If not go to your lynksys broadband wireless software. If you don't know how enter into your explorer bar, log in with lynksys, default is top line blank password 'admin', go to Applications and Gaming tab and enable Wireless QoS, you'll also see all of the places to establish and open ports for specific applications.
