Cannot disable firewall during setup processing MN 500
I'm trying to setup MN500 using software. After I plugged modems, setup told me "setup has successfully detected your base station." I put all wireless network name, password, etc... then when I click next, it tells me
"if I have any firewall or internet security software, turn off, then restore the factory setting." I did disable all firewall, I even delete McAfee anti-virus program, then restored factory setting which is press and hold small hall as it instructed. However, it keep asking me samething over and over and now I'm stuck.

The CD Setup wizard will fail to complete the installation or sometimes
fail to run at all because antivirus, anti-spyware or PC firewall is
blocking the installation process.
To ensure a successful installation from the CD Setup Wizard, make sure
all security tools are temporarily disabled before the installation
begins. Enable back the antivirus, anti-spyware or software firewall
once the installation is completed.
NOTE: If setup still fails to complete, check that you
have selected the correct operating system in the setup options. You may
also try restarting the computer and reinstalling from the CD if the
setup fails to complete the first time. If all else fails, try searching
for your device model at http://www.linksysbycisco.com/US/en/support/ and clicking on Get Downloads to download the latest firmware.
You either have a bad cable or the unit has an issue. Don't know if this thing has a fuse in it or not, but if the cable is good (check by metering it out) then your next step is to see if it has a fuse. I'm willing to bet it does not in which case your stuck buying something new that does power up.
I don't think it's your router or your computers. If you just replaced your modem it has to be the problem. If it is a DSl Modem you have to imput you account username and password. If it's a cable modem you have to call the cable company and tell them you have a new modem. Which every it is you need to contact your Internet service provider, they are the ones who can help you.
You know it is not your connection nor is it your modem. Contact your isp and ask them to release and renew your ip lease. Then connect the router and retry. Should be good. Otherwise contact Microsoft

If you are using XP, and installed the proprietary WiFi software (not the built in XP software), did you turn off the Zero Configuration Wifi SERVICE? Running both will cause issues with your connections..
