Windows XP is not the problem. It may be that the CD you have is unreadable in some way or is conflicting with another application. However, you don't actually need to use the CD to configure your router. If you can connect the ethernet cable between your computer and the ports labled LAN (or they may just be numbered 1 - 4), you can set up the router using the web-based utility. With the computer connected to the router, open a web browser (like Internet Explorer) and type http://192.168.1.1 in the address bar and press enter (if that doesn't work try 192.168.0.1). If you are asked for a password, leave the user name blank and try "admin" (no quotes) for the password (or "password"). This should get you into the web-based setup utility. From there you can run set-up wizards witin the uiltity.

Linksys also has free technical support for at least the first 90 days. They should be able to assist you with using the web utility to configure your wireless or possibly replace your CD or point you to a download for the software.

I get an error 323 during setup


Are you trying to run the CD to setup your router?

I will suggest you to install your router manually.
It is very easy.
Connect one computer to the router. Open the setup page of the router and change the settings manually.

I've lost my manual for my WRT54G2 V1 manual in our move. I can't remember if there was a setup disc involved either. Thanks


Yes, that unit did come with a CD, however, you may be in luck as the setup wizard is available on the Cisco site here.

How do u use other pcs on it


Are we talking about wired and wireless computers alike? You don't actually need to use a linksys disk to have them all setup. Do you at least have one computer connected to the internet through the router? If so, just physically connect all computers that are going to be wired, and they should be able to automatically get online. As for the wireless computers, do they all have wireless adapters already? If yes, make sure that they can see the router (If using Windows XP/Vista, you will see a wireless icon on your system tray. Click on it and a list of available wireless networks should be displayed. Look for "linksys" or any name that you might have used when you were initially setting up the router. Highlight and click connect. Unless you have encryption enabled on the router, wireless computers should be able to get online automatically.

I am trying to install an HP 7460 wireless printer to my HP cpu via a linksys router. My password for the router is 7 letters, and the printer says it has to be 8 letters. How do I change the router...


When accessing the router’s web-based setup page, a log-in screen will appear asking for the router’s password. The router’s default password is “admin.” You should change the password for security purposes.
The router’s password must be changed to:
  • Prevent unwanted users from accessing the router’s web-based setup page.
  • Enable Remote Management.
The router’s IP password can be changed by:
  • Running the router’s setup CD.
  • Changing it on the router’s web-based setup page. For instructions, please follow the steps below.
Changing the Router’s Password
Step 1:
Access the router’s web-based setup page.
NOTE: If you are using Mac to access the router's web-based setup page.
Step 2:
When the router’s web-based setup page appears, click Administration.
Step 3:
Enter the new password on the Password and Re-enter to confirm fields.

Linksys wireless adapter and linksys wrt54g2 router not seeing each other


its possible that the wireless card does not have the correct wireless settings.

Open the linksys wireless monitor on your wife's laptop.
Go to the profiles tab, highlight the default SSID then click on edit at the bottom. It will search for the wireless network, from the list of networks that it will show you, click the name of your wireless network, in if the network is secured you will be ask to put in your network key. Then click connect. Then it will say that you profile was successfully configured. then click connect to network. It will take you back back to the screen where you saw no association to the access point, check if you will now get a new message. On that same screen click the more info button at the upper left hand side. Check the IP address it should be 192.168.1.x. If you have that IP then you can test if you will be albe to get online.

if you still have any problem just reply to this post.
