I've recently installed Windows XP home on my computer and have not been able to set up this router so my computer will communicate with it. Also, I cannot connect to the internet when the router is plugged in. All the appropriate LEDs are flashing when the cables are installed. I also cannot access the router config page on 192.168.1.1. IE 7 waits for a bit, and then returns the "Can't find webpage" screen. This router worked well under Windows 2000 on this machine prior to XP. When I disconnect the router and plug my computer directly into the Cable modem, everything works fine.

Re: Computer not connecting to Router
Ok make sure your PC is connected to the router with a network cable for programming.
I noticed you said 192.168.1.1. I see an extra period just wanna make sure your typing it in correct
Ok so make sure the cable modem is plugged into the WAN on the router... Now connect another ethernet cable to the PC and the router. Reset the modem and router... wait a few mins and try to connect to the programming setup.
