    What will downloading these things do? Will doing this give me something that my computer is lacking in order to set up the router? What is the error? Do you need a copy of the error message to determine that?

Ok ...I didn't understood what kinda cd but my guess is that is not made for Mac OS ...anyway ..to hook up a router I dont think you need a cd ...
a router is configured by browser ...just go to the browser ...and type http://192.168.1.1 or ...what ever the router ip address is .......( look in the manual ) ...and than clik enter ..
it will prompt you for an id and a password....most routers have admin ....in the first ..and admin as a password in factory settings ...
the variations are ..admin ..and password 1234 or no password at all ..usually they are provided into the manual ..
here I link a detailled explaining about doing that :
http://compnetworking.about.com/od/homenetworking
/ht/routerconfigure.htm
now ..that you are into its setings ...you have to configure the router to the network ...( wlan) here the situation depends on what kinda network you have ...if you have a tcp/ip...protocol based ..you have to first clone the MAC address of teh router to match the one that your provider has...so ..you have to set it from the computer that was hooked on that network in teh first time ...and it will ask you to do it auto...
after that you just enter the Ip adress ;subnet mask ;default gateway ...etc just like you configure a LAN on your network card ...and save ...
if your computer was connected by a dsl modem ...the situation its tricky ..cause you have to change te router original ip range and address to not be in conflict with the modem ...( those things came by factory with similar ir addresses..and will have issues in seeing each other )
after that ..all you have to do is to choose automatic ip ..just like you used into the computer connection ...
in this moment you have to be connected to the internet ..by wlan ...
all computers that conects to the internet by lan ports on the router will have to be setted as get an ip adress automatic...and they will work ...the thing to change is the dns server ,,,and you can put as a server the modem's IP ...adress with will be 192.168.1.1 if you never changed it ...
the ir-es on computers will variate from the range of teh newly introduced ip in the router ...ex...if you change the router IP from 192.168.1.1 ( original ) to 10.10.10.1 ...it will start ofer ir-es to teh hoocked up computers from the 10.10.10.2 up to ...what ever range you set it ...or ..up to 100 more if you let it set by factory
for the wireless you jus have to go into its setings and enable it ...choose a chanel from 1 to 13 ...and set a wep password to secure your line ..or ..better set an acces by the mac adreses ...and you will not need a password to secure it ..
or ..you can just enable it ..and let it like this ..
please let me know if you didnt understood something ..and try to ask quiestion as detailled and clear for to be able to provide clean answers...

Mac ibook wont boot past biue screen .keep running


Try holding down ALT while booting up and select Macintosh HD. If that doesn't work try inserting your mac osx install CD or DVD restart hold down ALT. Select the CD using the arrow keys after the CD has loaded go up to the drop down menus and go to disk utility, then click on your main boot disk (macintosh HD) and under the First AID tab (if your using osx) click verify permissions and restore permissions, then click verify disk and repair disk. Try to boot up. If this doesn't work restart leaving work mac osx CD in hold down D then follow the disk checker steps. This will tell you if there are any errors on your disk (hard drive). If there are you need to get it fixed or replaced.

Try holding down ALT while booting up and select Macintosh HD. If that doesn't work try inserting your mac osx install CD or DVD restart hold down ALT. Select the CD using the arrow keys after the CD has loaded go up to the drop down menus and go to disk utility, then click on your main boot disk (macintosh HD) and under the First AID tab (if your using osx) click verify permissions and restore permissions, then click verify disk and repair disk. Try to boot up. If this doesn't work restart leaving work mac osx CD in hold down D then follow the disk checker steps. This will tell you if there are any errors on your disk (hard drive). If there are you need to get it fixed or replaced. If none of this works you will need to buy a 8.1gb pen drive mac osx 10.6 update ($30 USD) then follow the instructions from http://www.maciverse.com/installing-snow-leopard-onto-an-external-hard-drive.html to create a temporary start up disk. Then go to your old Hard Drive Macintosh HD (should be on the desktop) and copy/backup important files and then turn off and get a new hard drive try Ebay and ask if it will fit your macbook by using your model number found under your battery. Find instructions for install or take the hard drive to a pc shop and ask for them to switch them over. If they don't copy your old files you will need to do a fresh install with your mac osx cd/dvd.
Note: You can use the pendrive as a temporary for as long as you want, to select it hold down ALT at startup and select the disk thats not macintosh hd or a cd/dvd. If you can't find an 8.1gb pen drive get a 16gb pendrive. sorry about the URL the link button wasn't working for some reason

M-audio firewire solo


I just bought the Firewire Solo and had the same issue with my MacBook. I have OSX 10.5.6. The drivers that came on the CD were for earlier OSX version. If you go to M-Audio's website (www.m-audio.com) and then click on Support. Go to to drivers & updates, search by the criteria they give you for your specific system and then download. Although they don't currently have an updated version for 10.5.6, I downloaded 10.5.5 and it seems to be working, although I'm running into an audio input problem when hooking up mic and guitar....no sound. I'm thinking I'll just have to wait until M-Audio comes out for an updated version for 10.5.6. Hope this helps.
