You don't need the setup software, it's just another junk on your system to cause problem down the road.

It has built-in webserver that has both manual config and configuration wizard. It's very easy.

Initially, just plugin your PC/Laptop using CAT5 cable, wait until it's DHCP server assigns an IP to your PC. Normally, it will assign an IP such as 192.168.1.*, some D-Link assigns 192.168.0.* or 192.168.2.*. You can very the IP by opening your command prompt window and type "ipconfig".

Open your browser (IE or FireFox, don't matter), and in the address bar, type in http://192.168.1.1. It will get you to main setup screen. Setup your SSID and enable security. Then your laptops should be able to find your router.

There's no need to download any software.

Use an Ethernet cable to connect your computer to one of the LAN ports on the router.

Click Start
Click Run
Type CMD and press ENTER.
Type IPCONFIG and press ENTER.
Look for a line of output like:
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 14.64.1.1

Start Internet Explorer.
Type http://14.64.1.1
to connect to the web-server "inside" the router.
Click to run the "network setup wizard"
Later, click to run the "wireless network wizard".

Disconnect the Ethernet cable, and have your computer "view available wireless networks" -- you should now be able to "connect" wirelessly to your router.

Here's a link to the Linksys download site. You have to specify your harware version (1.0 to 8.2) and then the download list will come up...

Unable to use Linksys router


Hi...a visit to the WRT54G support page on the Linksys website would be a good starting point - you can pick up a user manual for your model from the 'Get Downloads' link. This will help you with setup and other details.

There is a very good FAQ section on this page as well, which will also help you with the router setup.
Hope this helps to start with.

Need the driver for Linksys WRT300N V1 ... can't find the CD


Hi,

The LINKSYS WRT300N is a standalone device, there are no software/driver needed on your PC for the router to work. However, there is an easy Setup Wizard that is in the CD that normally comes with the unit.

Unfortunately, Linksys did not make the specific Setup Wizard (Version 1.3) for the WRT300N available online. However, if you care to try the Setup Wizard for a WRT54GC, it may downloaded from the LINKSYS ftp site here. I used to have a WRT54G and I did make use of the Setup Wizard for that model. I upgraded to WRT300N. The setup wizard for the old WRT54G worked likewise on the new WRT300N.

Alternately, the WRT300N can still be configured without the CD or the Setup Wizard by logging into the Configuration Page (192.168.1.1). Remember to use LAN interface when setting the router (as shown in the connection diagram) and set your PC to an IP Address of 192.168.1.2, Subnet Mask of 255.255.255.0; Follow on screen instructions and enter settings/configurations manually.

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information. Additionally, if you still prefer to have a copy of the original WRT300N Setup Wizard, pls include your email address that I may send it to you as an attachment.

Good luck and kind regards.
