Hi jlouisg,

Sounds like maybe the wrong CD is being used for installation. Is this possible?

If you haven't made any configuration changes to your router's settings, you can access and set it up directly without the installation software. Simply plug a cable into one of the four Ethernet ports (not the uplink/Internet/WAN port) and then into your computer. Bring up Internet Explorer and type into the address bar. It will prompt you for a username and password. Both username and password are 'admin' (without the quotes). From this point you can make all the changes you need and set up security as well.

If you have changed settings to the router, take a paper clip and hold in the reset button on the back of the device for 30 seconds (make sure it is powered up when you do it). That will reset the device to its default settings, at which point the IP address and username/password info I provided will work.

If you're not comfortable with administering the device by that method, you'll need to find the correct CD to do the installation. If you are positive you have the correct CD for the router, then reply and answer with which version of Windows you are using.

if you already have a wireless setup the latop (if it has wireless) will pick up the wireless router (if security on the wireless network, just type in the security password). Type into your browser to access the routers configuration page.

Linksys 2.4 model # WRT54GS

Since you're trying to setup the router using the setup CD and it wont finish the installation of it, you can just do a manual setup on the router by accessing its setup page , but if you're not aware on how to do that I suggest you call Linksys tech support so a tech can walk you through with that process, this is the number for Linksys 800-3267114 they are open 24/7.............

My setup disc is cracked and I need to install the software onto my computer.


As far as I know, the setup wizard for your router is just to help you configure the internet and wireless connection and it won't install any software at your PC. It just needs you PC to run the setup wizard to do those things. An alternative way is to manually configure it via it's web interface which you can access by opening Internet Explorer and type at your Address bar. That's also useful when you will configure advance setting at your router.

Hope this helps.

Computer says router not supported.

I think your configuration have a problem try to reset the reset button of the router. Press the reset by using a tip of pen by 15 second and try to connect. If still not connected try to run again the setup configuration of the router.

Wireless - G router

If the Linksys is not yet configured use the desktop to put the CD in and follow instructions to add the Linksys Router to your existing network setup.

Once inside there are a few more steps to getting a desktop PC to see & network with a laptop PC within a router/wireless environment. Once the Linksys is setup you may want to repost something to get the computers talking to each other.

Take care...
