Re: need reconnect useing wireless
You do not need the disk to set up your router. There is a small button on the back in a tiny hole. With the unit on push the button for 10 seconds to reset it to factory default. Then you just hook your computers cat 5 LAN cable to any of the 4 computer connections, not the internet connection. Hook the LAN cable from your modem to the internet port on the router. Then follow these instructions to set up your security preferences. You DEFINITELY want to set up WEP or whatever, to keep people from jacking your service. This is how you do it:
LinkSys Router Configuration
I recommend simply starting your web browser and jumping into the configuration.
Once your web browser is open, go to the URL http://192.168.1.1/. This will take you to a pop up box which asks you to enter a user name and password.
The user name is either blank or "admin" and the default password is "admin".
Once you are past the log in screen, you are able to access (and change) a plethora of configuration options for your router.
Don't be worried by the enormous number and variety of options, your LinkSys router ships with default settings that enable it to work right out of the box in most environments.
From here the configuration options that you choose are largely up to your own personal preference.
As this is wireless router , I recommend that you consider setting an SSID to identify the router as your own and configuring WEP to encrypt your wireless traffic if you are in a highly populated area to keep people from hopping a free internet connection gloaming up all your bandwidth. If you live in a congested area you have to set up WEP or else war drivers will get on your connection and download all kinds of bootleg movies or stolen software and the service provider will send you the threat letters. This actually happened to me. Now I run A VPN that encrypts everything that goes in and out of my computer and drops it off in Amsterdam. I can download whatever I want and not even my service provider knows whats going on as everything is encrypted with a 256 bit AES encryption key. With the fastest array of computers I will be dead for 1000 years before they decrypt the first file. If you want to learn more about Virtual Private Networks Get in touch with me directly: firstname.lastname@example.org and I will teach you all about it. Then you can download whatever you want until you are blue in the face and nobody can tell what you are doing.
I hope you found this helpful, If you did please rate it a fixya as this is the answer to you question and then some. Also if you E-mail about VPN service just make a note about it in the letter to me. Thanks for reading and rating,

Its possible that in ap mode it cant handle wired and wireless and that
the wired connection takes priority of the only available ip address,
thus the wireless cards cant get an ip and so cant connect.
of course that could be b*****s but you never know.
yes i know you said it works fine when using xp pro so maybe the router doesnt release the ip correctly with win7.
any chance of installing a wifi card from one of the xp machines into the win7 machine just to test it?
can you test connecting one of the xp machines with wired and see if the other can connect using wireless?
So please You will have to reboot your router and all the wireless XP systems,
while the Win 7 system is off. You may have to reboot the router once
in a while. Not the most elegant solution, but this is the only way my
XP systems with wireless would work.
This might be due to several causes. First of all, reboot your router AND your PC. If that doesn't fix it, a few possible situations remain:
- If you're getting this message on a secured wireless connection, you might have filled in a wrong network key.
- Your network card may be malfunctioning. Try reinstalling your network card drivers and see if that helps.
remove one os on your computer. its will never work that way.reinstall the new os that you have with the cd. once you uninstall and reinstall the operating system you must be online wired directly to your modem. or wireless if your computer has the wireless adaoter and you have a wireless network from a router of a gateway.
actually, he did so because they don't "support" anyone else's equipment. once he verified your connection with them that way, he left. an easy solution would be to reconnect your router back into your system just like it was before. reboot everything, and everything should work just like before, including tivo.
Are you trying to set up the router. You can do it manually without the CD. Make sure that your computer is able to go online through the modem. If your computer is able to go online through the modem Then you need to connect the computer to the router ad the modem to the router. open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP. Click Here for step by step by instructions
instead of using the disc you can set up the router manually. is there any other computer which is able to go online using this router ? If you have other computers working then you will not need to set up the router again. Click Here for more info about the routers
Wireless Troubleshooting Checklist
1. Unplug power from Router and Modem for 3 mins.
2. Restart computer.
3. Make sure your wireless device is active:
a. Verify that your wireless device is turned on. Some laptops have a physical hardware switch located on the case. Make sure this is in the ‘On’ position. Other laptops use a Function Key combination (e.g. Dell uses Fn+F2, IBM uses Fn+F5)
b. Open Network Connections (from the System Tray or from the Control Panel). Verify that your wireless Connection is Enabled. If not, right-click on your wireless connection and select ‘Enable.’
4. Renew your connection. Changes elsewhere on the network can sometimes knock out your connection. To reconnect quickly, click Start, Run in XP (or press the Windows key in Vista), type ipconfig /renew, and press Enter.
5. Check for interference. Have you installed any new wireless devices (speakers, baby monitors, ect)? If so unplug them.
Make sure your wireless network has a unique name (ssid).
5. If other wireless devices can connect to your router and only your computer can't.
a. Try deleting your wireless profile. If you are using the built in wireless for windows go to Control Panel> Network Connections right click on Wireless Network Connection and select View Avaliable Networks. On the left hand side under Related Tasks click on "Change the order of preferred networks" select your network name and click remove. Now try reconnecting to it. Be sure to type in the correct security key.
b. Disable your software firewall.
6. If you can connect to the router but not the internet.
a. Click Start > Run type CMD into the box and click OK to open a command prompt.
At the prompt type netsh winsock reset catalog This will Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults
When the first one is done tyoe this netsh int ip reset reset.log This will Reset TCP/IP stack to installation defaults
Reboot the machine.
b. Change the name of your wireless network (SSID)
c. Change the wireless security key and or wireless security type. Some devices are not compatible with the WPA encription.
be sure to use a HEX password Hex is 0-9 and A thru F only. The Hex key must be exactly 10 characters long for WEP64, or 26 characters long for WEP128. If you're using 5 characters or 13 characters, it's really ASCII, not HEX.
