Linksys locks up windows

Just a suggestion; this option may not be available under this device, or that type port: Rather than unplugging the card, go to Device Manager, find the card, and under Properties, set the device to not turn off to save power. Or try shutting down the wireless router, then restarting it.

My linksys router WRTP54G starts

If the lights are flicking it could be a problem with the router itself. Lights do flash on routers to show activity which is normal.

Try factory defaulting the router. If that does not work then the router is likely bad.

Title: Setting up your Linksys Router for the first time Article ID: 21463
Your Linksys Wireless-N Router comes with the Cisco Connect software which makes setting up and managing your Linksys Wireless-N Router a quick and simple experience. You'll have your Linksys Wireless-N Router up and running in no time.

NOTE: The Linksys E2100L router is only available in the U.S. For help on setting up a Valet or Valet Plus, please click here.

Some basic requirements before you begin
i. An active Internet connection.
ii. A computer with a wireless or wired Ethernet adapter, running one of the operating systems below.
- Windows XP with Service Pack 3
- Windows Vista with Service Pack 1 or better
- Windows 7
- Mac OS X Tiger 10.4.9
- Mac OS X Tiger 10.4.11
- Mac OS X Leopard 10.5.8
- Mac OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.1
Getting started
Provided that the above requirements are met, you can now begin setting up your Linksys Wireless-N Router. In this example, we'll be setting up the Linksys E3000 High Performance Wireless-N Router. The following steps will walk you through the entire process.
Step 1:
Your Linksys Wireless-N Router allows you the freedom of running setup via a wired or wireless connection. Therefore, please start by performing the instructions under the description that best matches the computer you're working with. Proceed to Step 2 once you're done.
Description A:
You are using a computer with no wireless connectivity that is normally connected with an Ethernet cable to your DSL/Cable modem.

Instructions A:
Please connect one end of the supplied Ethernet cable into the Ethernet port on your computer, and connect the other end into one of the numbered Ethernet ports at the back of your Linksys Wireless-N Router.
Description B:
You are using a laptop with a built-in wireless adapter.

Instructions B:
If you're using a laptop, please ensure that its wireless feature is switched ON, and that your laptop is positioned within 5 feet of your Linksys Wireless-N Router.
NOTE: Most laptops have a switch that turns its wireless feature ON and OFF. Refer to your laptop's documentation or online help if you're unsure where this switch is. This doesn't apply if you purchased an external wireless adapter separately.
Step 2:
On your computer, insert the supplied Setup CD that came with your Router. Setup should start automatically.

NOTE: If setup doesn't load automatically, please click here.

Step 3:
The first screen greets you with the Software End User License Agreement. Please take a moment to read through and understand the agreement. Once you're ready, go ahead and click Next.


NOTE: The Linksys Wireless-N Router model displayed on the setup screen may vary based on the Linksys Wireless-N Router model you have.
Step 4:
On the next window, please follow the on-screen instructions on how to connect your Linksys Wireless-N Router:
kb21463-002_en.png Plug one end of the power cable into your router and the other end into an electrical outlet.

NOTE: The Linksys E3000 features a power switch, located at the back-end of the unit, next to the power port. Please make sure that this switch is ON. Other Router models may not have this feature.

kb21463-004_en.png Plug the Internet cable into the yellow port in the back of your router labeled "Internet". Plug the other end into the modem.
QUICK TIP: Click Show me how for an illustrated guide on how to complete the above instructions.
After completing the above steps, click Next to continue.

Step 5:
Setup will now perform a series of tests to determine the optimum configurations for your network. You may notice your computer connecting and disconnecting to a wireless network several times. This is normal. Your wireless network is simply being secured.
NOTE: The setup process automatically generates a unique and secure Wireless Network Name (SSID) for your convenience.

kb21463-006_en.png Step 6:
The next part of the setup automatically detects your Internet connection type. If you are using a DSL connection, you may be requested to enter your account details. If this is the case, simply enter your Account name and Password in the allocated fields. Otherwise, you may skip ahead to Step 7.
NOTE: If you don't know your Account name and Password, your Internet Service Provider (ISP) will be able to provide these details.

QUICK TIP: Click Examples to see what your Account name should look like.

kb21463-007_en.png NOTE: Cable Internet users will not see the above screen.
Step 7:
Sit back and wait a moment as setup finalizes your Linksys Wireless-N Router settings, and re-establishes your Internet connection.

kb21463-008_en.png Step 8:
Once your Internet connection is up and running, a confirmation window similar to the screenshot below will appear on your screen. Your Linksys Wireless-N Router is now secure and connected to the Internet. This concludes the setup process. Click OK to continue.

Step 9:
You will now be taken to the main Cisco Connect window which lets you manage and further personalize your network settings. If you would like to learn more about the available features in Cisco Connect, please click here. Otherwise, you may click on the Close button to exit Cisco Connect, and begin surfing the Internet right away.
NOTE: To launch Cisco Connect again at later time, on a Windows computer, go to Start>All Programs>Cisco Connect. To launch Cisco Connect on a Mac computer, navigate to the Applications folder in Go, and then start Cisco Connect. For more help on this, please click here.

kb21463-010_en.png NOTE: Cisco Connect is automatically installed each time you use the Setup CD or Easy Setup Key to setup or connect to your Linksys Wireless-N Router.

Lynksis Wireless Router does not stay connected to the Internet.

I suggest checking the documentation of your linksys router in the linksys site. Get the manual and that would tell you how to set it up. Regarding the router being broken, it is possible. Are you wired or wireless to the router?

Is it possible to finish seting up the wireless

Yes, the CD just automates the setup. Open your browser and enter into the address bar, then hit enter. This will take you to what looks like a web site but is actually your router. You will need to login using the username and password you gave it. If you did not get that far, the default is leave the username blank and the password is "admin" without the quotes. The steps you will need to take next can be found in the manual or at the Linksys web site.
