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: geokohler@gmail.com 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,
George

Hi:
here is my advice : Just go to www.microsoft.com and download internet explorer again and install it , then reboot your system . I'm sure that this will solve the problem . any way , why don't you try other internet communication softwares like ( firefox or google chrome) those both are great also . I advice you to have more than one internet communication software . I already have three just in case if one of them is corrupted . I have ( Internet explorer and firefox and google chrome ) . just try the idea and you'll be satisfied with the result .

If that didn't help then try to check system for errors . such as registry errors .
good luck .

if none of those didn't work , then repair the the system or reinstall it again , i recommend repairing .

My computer is on windows will reboot in 28 sec. then when it reboots it goes back to that screen


Usually a device driver or a Windows update got corrupted, try starting in safe mode and remove any new devices that were recently added that could be a culprit. Alternately, try using windows system restore and go back to before the problem occured. Hardest part is figuring out what is causing the problem.

System Restore:

Virus removal complete now cannot reboot


Well you would either need to do a system recovery, using the "Ctrl + F10" shortcut at the dell bios splash screen when you first turn on your machine, or you will have to call Dell and have them send you another copy of your OS (this may cost you some money, so be prepared.) Then reinstall using the disk.

OK I MEANT THE MACHINE IS NOT BOOTING BUT INSTEAD ITS SHOWING AN ACTIVE HYPHEN ON THE SCREEN. IT CANT EVEN BOOT OR READ OS FROM A CD.


Go into your bios settings and apply "Bios defaults",
Be sure the boot order is set to
1. CD/DVD
2. Hard Disk Drive
then save and reboot.
If the system boot, scan your drive with a good anti-virus.
If not, insert your Windows installation disk and reboot, press space if prompt to do so to boot on the CD. Reinstall Windows.
If it does not work, boot with a dos diskette, with fdisk.exe, delete all your partitions. Reinstall Windows.

.exe files got corrupted


well, if the CD won't read in Windows, and this is due to a virus, it should not affect the drives functionality before windows loads. You will need to use a bootable CD (like the Windows CD) and when you power on hte computer, enter the boot menu (check bottom of screen during power up for the correct button.) then select CD ROM and see if it will boot to Windows Set up. If it will, exit setup, restart windows, back up your data to a jump drive and then reboot with the CD & boot menu selection, and reload windows. Before you do any of this, go to acer's website and download all of the drivers for your computer to a jump drive, you will need them for the windows reinstall

This seems to be a generic mouse, usb / ps2 connectivity. User needs to press the connect / reset button on the receaver and on mouse. generally.. no drivers or cd required.

mouse has battery.

-check battery

-reconnect (receaver and mouse, if receaver doesn't have button, make sure its connected to pc and power is on, then reset.

try ps2 instead of usb or another usb port, might require adapter. (if im not mistaken it comes with the mouse)

-try another pc

= possibly faulty mouse if still not working? It should work with windows drivers, so no cd required.
