I think you need an extra cat-5 wire.

1.
Plug one CAT-5 LAN cable into the port labeled WAN on Linksys then the other end into the cable Modem where your PC is normally

2.
now take a separate Cat-5 LAN cable adn plug it into port 1 on the linksys - the other end into your PC NIC

3.
Power cycle Cable Modem (remove battery), linksys, PC this will clear the MAC addresses

4.
turn on modem, linksys then pc

5.
loging to windows - open IE on address bar type 192.168.1.1 - this should be the default address of your router (unless you've changed your subnet) in which case I recommend you factory default the route and use default settings. after typing teh 192.1386.1.1 you should see the linksys login

6.
Now try yahoo.com in IE, the routers factory setting for DHCP should work fine without any end user programming from you.

please rate me, good luck

I have a linsky wrt100 router that needs installing, but the installatin cd is broke, how can i install?


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, that means the modem is working fine.
You will 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.

I have linkys wireless router model wrt54g2v1.after i back up my computer i lost the linkys file. i cannot find cd for installation. now i am unable to open internet.

The reason for the CD is to configure the router to your cable modem. So if you reinstalled your computer you do not need the CD again. All you need to do is set the computer's Gateway back to your router. The links below will help you do this.

I have DI-604 in line between Windows Vista computer and cable modem. Works fine. Bought DIR-615 (wireless). Several places instructions say, ""Insert the DIR-615 CD into computer and click Install Router....


Contrary to the many warnings not to install the router before starting the installation with the CD, I got the installation to complete only AFTER I installed the router inline thusly:

1. Power everything off.
2. Remove DI-604.
2. Install and connect 615 router to computer and to modem.
3. Apply power to router and modem.
4. Apply power to computer and wait until Windows loads.
5. Insert 615 installation CD.
6. Follow the directions.
