You should not need a CD to setup your router, as it is not actually 'connected' directly to the computer (apart from by a network cable, if you are using a 'wired' connection).

Usually if you plug your router in, and the power this on, attach your computer to the router with a network cable and wait a few moments you should see that your computer will get an IP address from the router. It is best to use a wired connection to setup a router with, as if the router is un-configured, you may not know what the wireless settings are (such as encryption method, encryption key, etc). Wired connection generally do not have such complications and just generally work without a problem.

To check to see if the connection has worked ok, do the following:

  1. Click on Start and then Run (assuming you are using windows up to Vista)
  2. in the box that appears type in CMD (make sure that there is nothing else in the box) and press Enter
  3. in the box that then appears, type ipconfig and press Enter
  4. this will bring up configuration information about your interfaces.
You are looking for an address that probably starts with 192. or 10. if you have an address that starts with 169. then chances are it has not connected to the router successfully.

Once you have established that your computer has been given an IP address by the router, you can find the routers address as being the one that is the default gateway. Type in the address of the default gateway in to a web browser, and usually it will take you to the configuration page of the router, where you can customize the routers behaviour or setup a wireless connection (if the router has wireless built in).

Hope that this is of help to you!

I assume you mean cd driver..
your cd is recognised as plug and play and shouldnt need any drivers installing .
on the underside of unit youll find retainer screws for cd ..remove these to slide cd drive out ...startup pc and when in windows slide drive back in and sys will detect and install it .you may have to remove other covers to gain access to retainer screws for cd drive.
dont really matter which screws you remove whilst looking as long as you dont forget where they go and to replace them
