I have the Linksys SRX200 Router, model WRT54GX2. I used the setup disc to load it when I was running XP OS. I have a new computer which came with Vista. The setup disc states Runtime Error. I believe the problem is that the disc is not compatible with Vista.
I want to know where I can get a setup disc for Vista or where I can go to download a setup disc for Vista

Re: New computer with Vista operating system
You should not need the cd - if you connect the Router to your PC with an ethernet cable then you can access your router to setup the wireless configuration. You can find all the necessary downloads & upgrades for your Router, together with Installation guides etc.here:

Try to reconfigure the printserver using the setup CD that came with it. Normally that will fix the problem. Make sure the driver of your Printer is installed first before running the printserver setup.
Are we talking about wired and wireless computers alike? You don't actually need to use a linksys disk to have them all setup. Do you at least have one computer connected to the internet through the router? If so, just physically connect all computers that are going to be wired, and they should be able to automatically get online. As for the wireless computers, do they all have wireless adapters already? If yes, make sure that they can see the router (If using Windows XP/Vista, you will see a wireless icon on your system tray. Click on it and a list of available wireless networks should be displayed. Look for "linksys" or any name that you might have used when you were initially setting up the router. Highlight and click connect. Unless you have encryption enabled on the router, wireless computers should be able to get online automatically.
Auto run might be turned off. Click My Computer then click what ever driver you have the CD in ( D: E: ect.) Then find the installation or setup icon. Then follow instructions. It will install drivers then walk you through hooking up the router.
who is your broadband provider? Is this cable or DSL connection? Setting up the router is done via http://192.168.1.1. Leave username blank, password is admin. If you have Cable ISP, then make sure you have "Automatic Configuration-DHCP" selected and MAC address Clone is enabled on Setup > MAC address Clone (click Clone, and Apply). If it's a DSL connection and your broadband provider gave you a username and password, select "PPPoE" for Internet Connecton Type, and enter in your DSL username and password. Next verify if your modem is communicating with the router by going to the Status page and by verifying that you have an Internet IP address. If none, wait for a few minutes and power cycle your modem and router.
