"Cable" is an ethernet, well, cable... usually comes with any network hardware you purchase, and is readily available at your local WalMart for just a few bucks. You plug the end that looks like a over sized phone plug (RJ45 "ethernet" rather than RJ11 "dial up/analog") into the port that looks like yet another over sized phone jack. You should see either green or orange lights kick on when a connection is made... to let you know "mission accomplished."
You do NOT need hardware to install the versalink other than an ethernet cord and the phone cord. By default, you can also use the wireless antenna. The default WEP key and SSID are located on a sticker on the bottom of the DSL gateway.
The ONLY reason to need the software cd is if your ISP has installed a redirect page. There are two ways to disable it- one go through the activation page, or two: in your browser address bar type 192.168.1.1/*insert name of ISP, like verizon*/redirect.htm It should ask you for the user name and password- by default it is admin and password. You should see a page that has something along the lines of "Select button to disable"- press it, then the modem goes into it's setup pages. No tools necessary. No CD necessary. The only time you NEED the CD is if you are trying to connect via USB- I do not recommend this, since not only is ethernet more reliable, it's faster and does not require an unstable driver added onto your system.
Also, since I suspect you are a Verizon customer (they are the ones that supply the 327w for the majority- Contact Verizon technical support. For the business side it's 888 649 9500, option tech support. They can walk you through setting up your modem as well as send a cd for the modem *if you need to use the modem via USB*
You can go to Control Panle then Add/remove program double click on it then look for the Linksys software there then just remove it , that will remove the software on your computer and you need to restart teh computer to complete the uninstallation..
To my knowledge, there are three (3) files/drivers necessary for the D-Link DE530 series: NETDLKR5.INF, NETDLKR5.CAT and DLKRTS.SYS. Of course on installation, setup would ask for your Win98 CD fot the other networking files.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
