Wireless-N broadband router

Hello guy's, I have a G4 mac that Im trying to set the router on. Running on OS x 10.4. When I insert the cd I have 4 folders that I can click on and 3 that are black. My options are bin, easylink-single.ico, images, user-guide. And the black are aurtorun.inf , setup.exe, Setup.ini. If I choose autorun.inf my mac ask me to choose an application. I dont know what to do at this point, what do I choose and how do I enable it? Thanks, KK

Re: Wireless-N broadband router

Ok, I am pretty sure that they do not make the software for Mac. If you look on the CD "Designed For ......" Check and see if that is your problem. Then contact Linksys to see if there is a Mac version of the software!

Problems setting up new macs and a new wireless system with a PC

The MAC address of the network card on the PC is probably registered with Tiscali. The easiest thing to do is to Connect the Belkin router to the internet, then go into the config and clone the MAC address of the windows PC. Once this is done, then you can either plug in the airport express, or configure wifi for the Macs from the belkin.

Set up with cd on MacBook

yes you are right.. the cd which came with the router will not work with mac or vista computers..
don not worry about it, you can do a manual troubleshooting to fix this problem, i will give you a step by step procedure to fix this problem..try this out ..
To setup your router for a cable modem..
first check..
Connect the Cable modem to the computer using an Ethernet cable without the router installed and make sure that the Internet connection is active. If it is not, contact your Internet Service Provider. If it can go on line,
to setup connection..
Step 1:
Connect the Broadband modem to the router’s WAN or Internet port.
Step 2:
Connect the computer to any available numbered port (1, 2, 3 or 4).
NOTE: In this example, we’ll connect the computer to port number 3.
Step 3:
Make sure the power adapter is plugged to an available power outlet.
Step 4:
check if you are able to go on line wired..
if not your router has to be configured first,
to config your router first check this settings..
Configuring TCP/Settings in MAC OS X
Step 1:
Click the Apple icon, select Location, then choose Automatic.
Step 2:
Select Built-in Ethernet under Show.
Step 3:
Click the TCP/IP tab and select Using DHCP under Configure or Configure IPv4.
Step 4:
Leave the Search domains or Additional search domains fields blank.
Step 5:
Click Apply Now.

You should now be able to access the router’s web-based set up page and configure your router.

Accessing the Router’s Web-Based Setup Page
Step 1:
Open a web browser such as Internet Explorer.
Step 2:
Go to the Address bar and enter your router’s IP Address ("" is the default IP of most Links-ys routers) then press [Enter].
Step 3:
A new window will prompt for a User name and Password. Leave the User name space blank, type in your router’s password ("admin" is the default password), then click OK.
Step 4:
When the router’s web-based setup page appears, click the drop-down arrow under the Internet Connection Type field and select
Automatic Configuration - DHCP.and then scroll the page down and click save settings..
Step 5:
Click MAC Address Clone you would find this sub tab at the top in the blue bar.
Step 6:
Select Enable and click Clone Your PC’s MAC.and click save settings..
Step 7:
Click Status at the to right side ion the black bar
Step 8:
Check the value of the Internet IP Address. If the Internet IP Address has numbers, this means the router has been properly configured. You should now be able to access the Internet. If you’re not on-line, perform a power cycle to synchronize the router with the modem.
Power Cycling
Step 1:
Shutdown the computer.
Step 2:
Unplug the router’s power cable.
Step 3:
Unplug the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for 30 seconds.
Step 4:
Plug in the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for its lights to appear stable.
Step 5:
Plug in the router's power cable once the modem’s lights appear stable.
Step 6:
Power on the computer on and test the Internet connection.

Now if you are on-line wired remove the cable from the laptop and check for wireless connection

i am sure this would fix your problem in case if you have any more issues revert back to me..
