Question about Computers & Internet
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.
