i have lost my installation cd for my linksys wrt54G wireless modem. i tried calling around, and i tried to connect w/ linksys online, and nothing is helping or working. basically all i need is a copy of the cd to install, or the setup files necessary to do so. i have been searching, and doing this online, and with help of friends, and nobody has been able to help me. not linksys tech, or anybody. i can't find a copy of the files to download anywhere. PLEASE can somebody help me?!?! thank you. anthony

Are you trying to get the router settings through the IP address If that doesn't respond, look at the back of the router for a small reste hole. With the router power plugged in, use a paper clip to reset the router config back to default. Hold the reste switch in for 30 seconds and pull the power afterwards while holding the switch in. Try that. There really shouldn't be a set-up disc needed for Windows XP or Vista. If you are using a DSL connection, I am sorry to inform you, but there is only 1 dependable router for wireless DSL and it is made by D-link. If you still feel you need a set-up disc, look on linksys website and search their archived download section.

I tried that but the computer does not recegonize that there is something between the comcast router/modem thingy, and itself. when i got the linksys about a year ago or so, i had the disk and installed the disk, then i plugged in the linksys. it worked fine. my home burnt down about 8 months ago, so i lost a lot of the software that i had, including the linksys disk. i went to the linksys site, none of the firmware on the site does anything, and when going to the tech page, the forums don't help cuz they say to punch in the IP, i then do so, and the page itself seems to be missing. so in other words, that is a no go in that department. everything that i have tried such as resetting the linksys as you had mentioned did not help, neither did resetting both linksys, and comcast. at this point it seems hopeless without the disk, and that's how i see it. if there's any other methods i would love to hear them, or if there's a different link that may get me the files needed to install on a totally different computer, that would be helpful. thank you. Anthony

It seems that your issue circles around the start up CD. Few things you can try if you have not done them yet, since no one is able to help you due to the missing CD.
1) Check with some one yo know who has the same model Modem
2) If this fails, try a store such as Frys Electronics/ BetsBuy/Circut City etc...they might have a CD in their repair shop and might be willing to load the software for you for a fee or even burn a copy for you.
3) Buy another Wireless modem.
Best of Luck

My hp 2100 presario laptop in not booting

Startup problems
If the notebook doesn’t respond when you turn it on
• Connect the AC adapter.
• Reset the notebook by inserting the tip of a paper clip into the reset button on the
bottom of the notebook. Then press the power button to turn it on.
• If the notebook still doesn’t respond, remove the battery and AC adapter, remove
any PC cards, and undock the notebook if docked. Then plug in the AC adapter
again, and reset the notebook using the reset button.
If the notebook won’t boot from battery power
• Make sure the battery is properly inserted and fully charged. Check the battery
charge by removing it and pressing the pad on the side of the battery. The lights
show the charge level.
• If available, try another battery.
If the notebook won’t boot from the floppy disk drive
• Make sure the floppy disk drive is selected as the boot device.
• If you’re using a USB floppy drive, use the BIOS Setup utility to make sure
Legacy USB Support is enabled. If your notebook also has a built-in floppy
drive, use the BIOS Setup utility Boot menu to make sure the USB floppy drive
is the first device under Removable Drive.
If the notebook stops responding after booting
Check whether you are connected to a TCP/IP network with no DHCP server. This
can cause a long delay at startup because DHCP is enabled. Contact your network
administrator to determine the proper TCP/IP configuration

Press F2 when you start it to enter BIOS to check your BOOT ORDER to make sure your HD is listed first on the list.
If it is not listed remove it and reinsert it and then try again.. GREAT LUCK!! Please Rate Me, K? Thanks- Lucky4lynn2
