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 192.168.1.1? 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

You actually don't need a setup disk for setting up a router. Try the following steps.
  1. Reset your router to default configurations by holding the reset button for 15 seconds.
  2. Make sure your desktop is set to "obtain an ip address automatically."
  3. Connect an ethernet cable between your router and desktop.
This should get you connected to the router. If you want to make any configuration changes, perform the following steps.
  1. Open up a web browser.
  2. Type in the address bar 192.168.1.1 (Default IP address of Linksys routers)
    This will connect you to the router.
  3. It will prompt you to login. The default username is blank (no text at all) and the password is admin.

To Configure the Router with Internet Access

Connect to one of the wireless router/access point's LAN Ethernet ports, turn off its DHCP server, and give the wireless router a static IP on your LAN:

  1. Connect a PC directly to a LAN port on the wireless router with an Ethernet cable.
  2. Power on the wireless router/access point.
  3. Reboot the PC.
  4. Log in to the wireless router though a browser. (Usually 192.168.1.1, with User Name = admin and Password = password, unless you changed them from the defaults).
  5. Go to the LAN IP menu and disable the wireless access point's DHCP server by unchecking Use router as DHCP server.
  6. Select LAN IP, and change the IP to 192.168.1.99.
  7. Click Apply to save the settings. You will lose the connection to the wireless router/access point , since its IP changed.
  8. Log in to the wireless router/access point with the URL: http://192.168.1.99
  9. Connect one of the wireless router's Local (LAN) ports to your existing network
