Hi. I am in the process of switching computers. I took out the linksys board thing in the tower of the old computer, put it in the new computer tower, and now it doesn't work. I notice there is a plug on the end of the board. Does something go into that? Help!

If you just bought the router, you will need to insert the router between your computer and your ATT DSL Modem. The cable from the wall goes into the modem (should already be that way) then the Ethernet cable from the modem should now go to the source of your Linksys Router. then use one of the ethernet ports from your router into the ethernet port on the back of your computer tower.
Use the documentation that came with the Linksys for more information on setting it up.
You will need to make sure that the Comcast modem is providing internet, you can do this by connecting your laptop to it using ethernet directly if it connects to the internet, that will be a good thing.
From your comcast Modem, the ethernet Cable should go to the linksys where it says "WAN". this should give you an internet connection and make your comcast modem communicate with your linksys Router.
For that right click on my computer icon then click on property then hardware-<device manager. Then you can see all driver list click on network adapter and enable it. You can configure your router without disk too.
For that Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link. http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.1.1 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. Click on WAN settings and set those settings as your internet service provider settings. Enable DHCP if you want to get ip from router. Click on wireless settings enable wireless then enable WEP Security then add WEP code .It is your password to connect wi fi.Then save settings and restart router. Then you can connect your wi fi network with that code. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.
re-install the software , if you don't have it goto Linksys . com these units do a funny thing when you are not looking they reset themselves , the hardware on your computer will also have to be reset , goto control panel/systems/hardware/device manager click on device uninstall your Ethernet device and reboot the computer , next place the CD into the tray and start over , I use the same unit as you , mine has had to be reinstalled 3 times so far check all connection locations , if all else fails call Linksys
If you purchased a Linksys wireless roter then you shoul not need the switch anymore-
Try going directly from your time warner modem into the Interner/WAN port on the router and then plug your desktop computer and the vontage phone system into 2 of the ports on the router. After everything is hooked up you will probably need to power cycle for it all to work correctly.
Please power cycle in this order:
Reboot modem - then Router- then Vontage phone system.
open device manager and look at network adapters and right click on your device and go to properties and uncheck the power management box that allows pc to put device to sleep.this should resovle your problems since windows id defaulted to put device asleep when idle to save power.hope this helps.
Before you can use your linksys router again, you must configure first your AT&T modem under bridge mode. If the AT&T modem is already set to you may connect the devices (modem router and PC) must be switched OFF first.
after the devices had been connected,...
1) turn ON the AT&T modem first, wait for the DSL light to stay solid
2) turn ON linksys router,wait for the lights to stay solid
3) turn ON computer,wait for your desktop screen
4) try to access Internet Explorer
