The only "installation" you need for the router is to connect it to the modem, plug in the power and, if it's a wired router, to connect it to the computer.

Then configure your computer's internet connection to connect to the router. (How you do that depends on which operating system the computer is running.)

If you're getting a wireless connection with no router, you're connecting to someone else's router - which is both illegal and dangerous (it gives them access to your computer).

Didnt get a CD to install the router - how can I do this manually


You can go the the manufacturers' website and download the software. Get a flash drive, plug it in a computer that's connected to the Internet, go to the website and download the file to the flash drive. Or, you can directly connect this computer to the modem, without the router, and connect to the Internet to download the file for the router.

I bought a Belkin N Wireless Router F5D8236-4 v2 and changed my internet provider a few months later and I have lost the Installation CD, can I install it without the CD?


Yes you simply need to hook up via an Ethernet cable, open a browser type in the routers address, login with username and password, and then you can edit any setting you like. Then when finished you save settings and reboot router.

when you had the internet installed, did you install the modem software for the modem? without the modem software, the modem cannot find the pc. if the modem connects directly to the pc, or even through a wired/wireless router, the modem software is a requirement. (i just went through all this myself w/ att dsl). if you have, or add, a router, that software will also need to be installed for those on the network to connect to the internet as well.

Use another computer to go to linksys.com and download the drivers to a USB stick, CD, or floppy. Apple can create disks or floppies that XP can read.

If you can't get to the internet, how did you post this message?

What you need to do is install your ethernet card first. The card usually comes with a disc with the drivers and utility. Make sure you get that done to get it out of the way. Next you need to make sure the router is connected properly. If you have the installation guide for the router, check the lights. If it's properly connected, there should at least two green lights and one amber. The amber light should indicate theat you have no internet connection yet. You may want to check the proceedure about accessing the router. Usually typing the homeportal in the address bar on Internet Explorer. If you don't have the installlation guide for the router, download it under support at the manufacturer's website. The important thing to keep in mind is to make sure the ethernet card is installed properly meaning the drivers and utility(if any) are installed, and all it is is that it just has a red X on it telling me i don't have internet connection. From there, all you need to focus on is the router installation(physical), then follow the proceedure to access your router. Well i hope you fix it.

When I try to reinstall my router I can't get beyond the first step as the disk thinks our computer is not connected to the internet when it is. It convinces my computer that it is no longer connected....


Step 1: Turn off your computer, router, and disconnect the power to the modem.

Step 2: Connect one cable between the modem and the router's internet port

Step 3: Connect another cable between the router and the computer.

Step 4: Turn on the computer, then the router, then the modem - in that order.

Step 5: Now try running the setup disk.

Explanation: The modem has a security feature that disallows more than one device from connecting to it at one time. Once a specific device is connected, the modem expects that device to be connected at all times. If you unplug your computer from the modem and plug in the router without disconnecting the power to the modem, the connection will be rejected. This probably explains the reason for the error message you were receiving.

Furthermore, you do not need the installation disk in order to install your router. Open your browser and type http://192.168.1.1 in the address bar. A username and password screen will appear, the default is usually admin/admin for both, but if that doesn't work just try admin in the password field. When you have successfully logged into the web utility, you will be able to alter the settings at your discretion. For the most part the router will work upon proper cable connections, however you will want to enable security features to prevent attackers from gaining access to your computer.

Can not get internet or local web thru my netgear router (wgt624v3)


Have you run the configuration CD that came with the router?
You may also have to make changes to your firewall configuration in order to connect to the Internet.
If you no longer have the install CD, use the network setup wizard included in WinXP.
