How can I get my Belkin router to read my Seagate storage device so that all computers in the house can access said Seagate storage device?


1) Turn off your wireless router and unplug the external hard drive you want to make wireless.
2) Plug an Ethernet cable to the "Network-attached storage" device, and the other end of the cable to an available Ethernet port on your wireless router.
3) Connect one end of the USB cable to the wireless router's available USB port and the other end of the USB cable to your "External" hard drive.
4) Turn on the both the Wireless router and the External hard drive. Make sure that your Internet connection is still working.
5) Insert the installation CD and run it on your computer. Follow the installation instructions and install any utilities related to your external hard drive. There may be special utilities provided for flash drives that are not needed for hard drives.
6) Create a login name and security password for the "NAS" device during the setup process. When the installation process is completed, you will now be able to use your external hard drive.

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.

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

Cant open the install.exe file on the software cd


adobe is generally only for files that end in ".pdf" for a ".exe" file you really should always be able to just double click it with your left mouse button.

and yes, install.exe is the correct file to get things going if they don't start automatically.

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.
