Are you trying to set up router ?
You can set up your router manually, without the CD.
Make sure that your computer is able to go online directly through the modem.
If your computer is able to go online through the modem
Then you need to connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router.
open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.

Hi there, I am so not computer minded and would love your help please. I have a great new Toshiba Satellite 350 and have no idea and I mean no idea how to connect to the internet. I have a wireless modem...

You'll need to make some connections.

1. Either:
* cable-modem to 'WAN' (or 'Internet') port on the router;
* DSL-modem to 'WAN' (or 'Internet') port on the router;

2. Ethernet-cable from one of the 'LAN' ports on the router to the network-port on your Toshiba.

At this point, you should be able to web-surf.

Insert the CD-ROM that came with the router, and run the software to "configure" your router, including the "wireless" interface in the router. You get to choose an SSID (a "name" for your wireless network) and a password for your network (to keep unwanted people from "piggy-backing" on your connection).

Then, on your Toshiba, use "view available networks" and select the SSID that you chose, and enter the password.

Now, you can disconnect the Ethernet-cable, and you should still be able to web-surf.

Or, instead of all the above, make a date to take your brother out to a steak-dinner, and then "guilt" him into configuring your router & Toshiba.

Need to network a wireless pc with a cable pc via router

man u have a router!!!!!!!!!

no need to share the connection
just configure ur router,
put ur broadband connection log-in information in the router
so the router will act as a gateway
and the router will start the dhcp server, so both of ur pc's will have ip's from the same subnet
when the router connects to the internet
the 2 pc's will do the same,

Dir-615 router not resetting

Hi there, and welcome to FixYa,

You have either set some kind of security on the computer or the router.

Best reset the router by pressing and hold the small inside boten on the back for 30 sec. first,
then if still no connection,
If its winXP, Start -> Settings -> Control panel, and find internet connection
open wireless connection, right click, go down to the bottom one (dont know it in English).
Chose Wireless network, delete you wireless connection, press the boten show wireless network, find yours and connect if it hasn't already done so itself.

Now you have a very open wireless router, do start to set a admin password, and what ever you do from here ON the router, you must do on the computer also.

DO NOT ATTEMPT to do this on a wireless connection, use a cable.

/Teis the Wiz
if this help you, please vote "FixYa"

Getting wireless computor and router back on line with desk top computor

1. Disconnect power from your modem and router
2. Connect an ethernet cord from your modem's ethernet port to your router's Internet or WAN port.
3. Connect another ethernet cord from a port on your router (labeled with a "1" above it).
4. Connect power to your modem and router.
5. I'm a little unsure about how you plan to connect your wireless computer to the router. The router you selected when you created this question is not wireless-capable.

If your router is wireless-capable, go to the wireless computer. Follow the instructions for your operating system below.

Windows XP

1. Right-click on the My Network Places icon on your desktop, and select Properties.
2. Right-click on Wireless Network Connection.
3. Right-click on View Available Wireless Networks.
4. Double-click on your network from the list that appears (it should be called "linksys" if you didn't change the name).

Windows Vista

1. Click on the network icon on the lower-right of your screen (it should look like two computers with one behind another. It might have a red "X" over it.)
2. Click "Connect to a network" (it also might be labeled "Connect or disconnect")
3. Double-click on your network from the list (it should be called "linksys" if you didn't change the name.

Mac OS X

1. Click on the AirPort menu in the upper right of your screen (it looks like "("s turned on their side).
2. Click on your network in the list that appears (it should be called "linksys" if you didn't change the name).

Wireless idiot

Hi mtc3,

When connected wirelessly, bring up a command window (Start Button - Run) and type cmd. when the black box comes up, type ipconfig and it will give you your current IP address and the Gateway address.

Type the gateway address (such as, which is the IP of the router) into your Address Bar in Internet Explorer and you should be able to administer the settings right there under Wireless Security (or something similar). If you don't know the default username and password to get into the router configuration/management it should be included in the router documentation.

If you are still having issues or don't know what to do, let me know and I'll give you a tutorial.

Yes your computer based on your model number should be able to support a wireless router.

Now... you did not specify if this is or is not a second computer that is trying to access the router which is hooked up to another computer and modem. If you are trying to access it you will need a wireless nic adapter installed on the Dell. To access the router. Please comment on what the case may be in your situation.
