Exclamation New at Linksys Rouder Model WRT54G v5 HELP!!!!!!!!!!


OK. I got this wireless rouder and iv'e been searching forever for instructions on how to establish internet connection.Silly me,I like to lose instructions and cds, soooo. I have a modem with internet connection from verizon and all. I don't know if that helps. I try to follow instuctions on the net on how to set it up. But its all french to me. They say i need firmware and tell me to use the ip adress. But how can i get to the page if theres no connection. This thing makes no sense. I need someone to teach me like kindergarden status on this thing. I don't want to mess up this thing it cost money and i'm supposed to get online with this thing. I'm thinkin if i hook up the modem to it and plug the other cable to the comp. But i type the ip adress and my verizon crap shows up from the other modem. I don't know if this makes any sense to anyone so yeah. I hope somebody cares enough to help because i keep getting a run around. Thanks for this site and for listening.

They mean the "internal" IP of the router (192.168.2.1, or 10.0.0.1 for example). Presumably your machine is connected to the router and has an IP address from it as well (/sbin/ifconfig in a terminal to check).

Is the product page. There are links to a user guide there which should be of help.

Normally, you plug a network cable between your PC and router and open a browser, then navigate to 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 or similar. It will prompt you for a user name and password. Linsys uses admin as the user name and admin as the password. Then set it up.

Unhappy Ok these things I know.

But, I don't have the CD and theres no way to setup without it. And when i have the modem hooked up to the wireless rouder theres no connection to get any page (Like the one you get when you enter the IP adress in the adress bar) even the LINKSYS username and password window. The page for the modem doesnt even come up. The one for the modem is my verizon window. So thats too much to chew 4 me. Oh by the way That page with the setup is very helpful once i fix this. Thanx ill know how to set it up when I can. You guys are helpful, but I'm not so bear with me please.

If you connect up your computer to the router and the router to the internet and issue ifconfig (or ipconfig if in Windows) do you get an IP address? You really shouldn't need a CD to configure the router because all the software for it is installed to the router.
