You don't have to uninstall the software from your old router. However for security reasons I would recommend to reset your router to a factory defaults. That will erase configuration file. Then just disconnect your old router from the network and install your new router.

You can uninstall it from start menu->control panel ->add remove programs for vista or win7 go to start->control panel->program and features. Then uninstall it's software from there you can also configure router without software with below method. You can also configure it with below method.
Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link. http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.15.1 or http://192.168.2.1 If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it. Then it ask for user name and password. Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank. Then you can see configuration page of router. If you are still not able to access router with above ip then you need to RESET it for that press RESET button for 10 seconds it is in back side of router then all settings defaults..Then you can access it with above method. Then click on WAN settings set it as your internet service provider settings enable DHCP Then click on wireless and enable it. . Then click on wireless->wireless security->WEP security there is code password note down it or enter new password then save setting s and restart router. then you can connect wireless with new password. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.

I don't have my installation CD


Go to this Microsoft website:

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;814445

...and read the instructions on this page. You will find a link on this page where you can download MS installation software.

"If you lose your Microsoft Broadband Networking CD and you have to install the software on a new computer, download the contents of the installation CD. To do this, visit the following Microsoft Web site:" http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=33104 (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=33104)

(The first link is useful because it also includes instructions and a link to the firmware updates.)

I am trying to install a wireless usb adapter. Problem installing driver software "process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process2 please help


Did you have a similar wireless adapter install previous to this one? If the software is similar then you need to uninstall the old software so that you can install the new software. The problem might be the old software version is running and you can't write over a file that is running. You can't delete or overwrite it until that process is closed.

Cant install D-Link WBR-2310 on vista


The error message seems very common when it comes to software installation on a Vista machine. It very likely indicates that the software you are trying to install is not working correctly with Windows Vista.
The latest version for the 2310 model "Quick Router Setup" software is 4.10. (You can find that here.) If you tried to install an older version, completely uninstall it before trying to install the latest one.

Also check which revision of the router you have here.

In general: If you are trying to install the D-Link software on your laptop - you don't have to do that. These softwares usually make your initial setup easier, but you don't gain any advantages on the long run.You can configure your router simply from a web interface. Open a browser, type 192.168.0.1 in the address bar. The default username is "admin" and the password is blank (nothing),

If you need more information, you can go to the D-Link webpage and also download a manual from there (look in the left pane)

Router installation


You do not have to uninstall your existing router. You can connect the new router to one of the ports on the old router.

But why would you do that? All wireless routers also have ports for wired connections. You are adding an additional possible point of failure in your network. Unless you have a good reason, keep it simple.
