Don't use the setup CD. It can cause a mess anyways if your computer could read it. Just plug the router into your mode using the correct jack. If you need to any admin work on the modem, the default IP address is:

http://192.168.0.1

user id is admin
password is linksys

The instructions on the router are explained on the right side of the screen.

If you want a manual you can go to linksys.com and call up your model number on your router and download the user manual that way.

I am using a macbook air 11inch. no cd rom hence could not run the cd installer. I copied the files to a usb flash drive but am unable to install using that. please advise what steps to take.


you can still connect you mac to your linksys even without a driver.

your MAC have a button that say ASSIST ME on the set-up screen for the wireless connection.
ASSIST ME button will be the one going to show you how to properly connect your MAC to your router.

Set up of new linksys


Are you trying to set up router ?
You can set up your router manually, without the CD.
Make sure that your computer is able to go online directly through the modem.
If your computer is able to go online through the modem, that means the modem is working fine.
You will need to connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router.
open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.

I recently got a Mac desktop and my Linksys router disk will not open up. Do I need a router that is made for Macs or is there a way to configure the Linksys?


Hi, You are correct. The CD is not compatible with Mac. What you have to do is Configuring the Router Manually using the Web Based Configuration panel.
How to:
  1. Open your Web Browser
  2. Type http://192.168.1.1 in the Address Bar and hit Enter
  3. If you have changed the address somehow you have to enter that (Router's IP - Default Gateway)
  4. Here is a small guide to Fine your routers IP address in case of that you are unable to access
  5. Enter the user name (default user name is blank- means no user name. Just leave it blank), Default password is admin.
  6. Now you can configure the Router using the Menus.
  7. Make sure that you have Saved your settings before Exit the Web Based Setup.
  8. Make sure that you have changed the Default Password.
  • If you can’t access the router’s web-based setup page, please check the following: cable connections, router’s LEDs, IP address, and connectivity.
  • Connecting Devices Together
  • Ensure that you have an Active Internet Connection and connect the modem to the router’s Internet port and the Mac to any of the four Ethernet ports.
  • Checking the Router’s LEDs
  • After connecting your modem and Mac to the router, check the lights on the front panel of the router.
  • Checking the Router’s IP Address
  • To find a Linksys router’s Local IP address, you have to check the IP settings of the Mac
  • Checking the Mac’s Connectivity with the Router
  • Ensure that the Mac is properly connected to the router.
You can download the Manuals from here to learn how to do Advanced, Customized Configurations.
Note: Please select the appropriate Hardware Version.
Thanks for contacting Fixya! Feel free to ask any questions if you face trouble with the setup. Please rate the answer as well!

Are you trying to run the CD on the MAC computer. CD will not work on the MAC computer. But you can set up the router manually without the CD. Are you able to go online on any other computer . If your router is already set up and you are trying to add MAC computer to the network then you don't need to run the CD. you just need to add the computer to the network. If you are trying to install the router for the first time then you can do it manually. Click Here for step by step solutions

How to install this Linksys wireless-G WRT54GS with a Mac?


you can configure that router without using the bundle CD. the default ip address for that router is 192.168.1.1. open internet explorer then type the ip address which is 192.168.1.1. then the default username is "admin" (without " ") then password is "admin" also. then you are now on the linksys webpage and you can configure there. it is much easier to use rather than using the bundle CD.
hope this can help you!
good luck
