Lou's answer was about as good as it gets. There is no driver for router so an installation CD per se is not needed other then to show you a video of how to configure the unit in question. I'm sure tho that there was a pamplet in your router box that gives you much the same information as would be garnered from the video on the CD/DVD. One other thing tho, just for safety's sake, please don't try to update firmware on a router until you have great confidence that you are fully and thoroughly connected to the internet via your new router. To do otherwise may result in massive headaches getting the router functioning again.

    Almost forgot this one, only update firmware through a wired connection, not via the wireless modes of operation.. I know you pamplet will say that but sometimes people fail to see it..

Netgear rangemax wireless router wpn824 how do you connect it and do i need a modem?


You need a modem. Without one you can't use a router. A router transmits an existing netwrok signal wirelessly. Without a source such as a modem from a cable provider a router can't function.
