Installing Wizard Wired Router EBR-2310


Hello, and I am new to linux and I am on gnewsense, newest version out.
Now whenever i bring out the cd, I double click on it and takes me through all these files, unlike windows where it lets me just boot it. I am just trying to run the setup wizard but I have gone through all the files and it doesn't help. The d link instructions show me to go to @the documentations in bins/folder@ when all it reall is, just a big pdf that I dont understand. Help?

If what you're trying to do is run Windows "autorun" software under Linux, well, that won't work.

What exactly do you want to do? Does the router have some kind of web based interface? If so, the manual should tell you which address to use to access it, so you'll be able to do the configuration there.

I did, but that didn't work either, configured it on my own manulaly, was scared you had to do it with the setup wizard.

I assume you've solved your problem then? If not, please tell us exactly what's wrong. I'd also be quite surprised if you had to use the setup CD to configure the router.

I have, i had to manually set it up without the quick router cd. Move some ethernet cabels here and there, and voila! Of course I than had to switch the connection i was connecting to after I rebooted my comp.
