Question about Linksys Wireless N Gigabit Router

1 Answer

I cant seem to install it

I have 2 desktops: an old xp and a brand new vista. When i try to install it on either desktops i get stuck at the part where it says "enter your internet connection type" i know it is DHCP because i called my isp Verizon 3+ times and they said that it was probably a linksys problem...so they rerouted me to linksys and they just told me to go back to verizon. I called both companies numerous times spending hours trying to fix it...but both didn't offer up a solution. How can i install this on my xp so that my vista can wirelessly connect to it? i currently have a verizon modem attached to the xp and my vista is wirelessly connected to it but it is slow (5 mbps) and the connection is poor...how can i update it to the speed 10/100/1000 like it advertised and get a reception of "excellent"?

If your machine was new and came with Vista pre-installed, you'll need to purchase Windows XP (assuming you do not already have your old Windows XP CD). Once you've got the XP CD, you can pop it in and install XP if you do not want Vista.

The problem is with vista and not you PC, vista does not support many devices yet, microsoft recently released vista service pack 1 which address's some of these issues, you can download SP1 through windows updates, and if this does not help your problem you're stuck waiting for microsoft to release more updates. Many vista users setup xp on a dual boot so that they can use xp for devices like yours.

Good luck and i hope this helps
