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.

Hi. You are going to need two things for this to work. First, you need a wireless router, these usually run about $50-$60. Then after you get the router, you need a wireless usb adapter, so that the xp computer can receive the signal from the router.
Connect the lan cable from the cable modem that is currently attached to the vista computer to the router, then connect a lan cable from the router to the vista computer.
The xp computer is easier. After you have the router hooked up, just plug the usb adapter into the xp computer, install any software that comes with it, and after it install the drivers it will be able to connect to your router, and have wireless internet.
Make sure that you know the name of your router, that way you are connecting to the right one.
if you connect the computer to the modem, does it work ? If that works then the modem is working working properly. now connect the modem and the computer to the router. open the set up page of the router. here you can change the settings of the router.

You probably have to buy a wireless card and and install it in your computer...there wasn't much in the way of home wireless back in 2002.
Go to your device manager and look at the network adapters and see if you have a wireless adapter installed on your system. If not, you will have to put a wireless pci card in and install it and then you will be able to configure your computer to connect to your router with a wireless connection.
The only option for the 5th pc would be to get it wirelessly connected. You need to install a wireless adapter to your pc. Set the IP & DNS to automatically obtained from router.

In order to access shared files on a Windows XP computer (or any
computer running Samba) from a Mac, the Mac will need to "connect" to
the Windows XP computer and "mount" the shared files.
Start at the "Go" drop down menu at the top of your screen, then "Connect to server".
If the computer you wish to connect to is listed, just select it from the list. If
the computer is not listed, type into the "Server Address" field
'smb://' followed by the computer name or IP address of the computer to
which you want to connect.
Click the "Connect" button in the bottom right corner of the window. See more at the link below:
