Lost or Unable to use Router Configuration CD NETGEAR does not replace lost or broken CDs because the Smart Wizard installation and configuration utility on the CD is already built into your router management software. There is no need to download anything to replace the CD - everything you need is in your router. This is true even if:
  • the CD that shipped with the router has been lost or cannot be read, or
  • errors occur when running the configuration program, or
  • the router is not connected to a computer using the Windows operating system.

To access the Smart Wizard installation and configuration program on your router:
  1. Connect your router to a computer by plugging one end of an Ethernet Cable into any of the four LAN ports on the back of your router.
  2. Log in to your NETGEAR router by browsing to http://www.routerlogin.net or http://www.routerlogin.com. Enter the username (admin) and password. By default, the password is password or 1234 unless it has already been changed.
  3. To install your router, simply click on the "Setup Wizard" link at the top of the left-hand navigation menu once you are logged into your router.
A video walk-through of installing and configuring your router using the Smart Wizard is available at http://kb.netgear.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/12873.

How to install the router


You should first install the CD that came with the router. When it comes up, it will guide you through the installation process. At the end of the installation, you will be instructed to plug the router in, and connect it to your computer. At this time you'll be able to select a security code to limit access to your router.
Refer to the instructions that came with the router in case you have any problems. It's not as hard as it seems, and you should be up and running within maybe 15 minutes.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

If you have reset the router then you must start afresh as if you are connecting a new connection. You must be having the CD of the software and the instructions which came with the router. Load it on the computer and follow the instructions. It is simple.

INSTALL CD


No install CD needed with valid working internet with modem. First you need to turn off your computer then connect the working hsi modem to the Netgear router with the ethernet cord (looks like a thicker telephone wire) connect the ethernet cord from the back of the modem to the first single port on the Netgear not the ports labeled 1-4. Then with another ethernet cable snap one end into one of the 4 ports available and the other end snap into your computers ethernet port. Then unplug the MODEMs power cord for 30sec plug it back in wait for modem to boot back up with all of its lights and turn the computer back on. After install is finished you can now go and download your routers firmware from Netgear. In your address bar where it reads http://.........go ahead and highlight this and backspace it all until it clears to blank. Type in 192.168.1.1 and then hit enter. A window will pop up asking for username and password. For username type in "admin" for password type in "password" this is default and will always work unless someone has changed the username and password already on your home network, in which case contact netgear support. But if it does work the you will get Negear Smart Wizard. Here is where you can click on "Setup Wizard" and follow the prompts to download latest firmware and then Finished. Close down the netgear page and happy wireless internet surfing.

Linksys router will not connect to internet


The modem looks like a cable modem from what I have found. You should press the small reset button on the back of the router for about 3 seconds and it should go back to factory settings. Connect the router to the modem and unplug power to the modem, then power it back on and the modem should recognize the router. If this works make sure to login to the router and set passwords and security to something other then the defaults. The Linksys routers usually are addressed at 192.168.1.1 with a default username blank and password of admin. Good Luck

Cannot finish installing


It means you have to plug in your computer to the router through a ethernet cord. Most computers have one, and on the back of thats router has 4 ehternet female ports. Plug it in, and run it again.
