And when this happens we forget the CD and use the router's web page interface to set it up.
About the network address. That is not something I've used the router CD to fix. It's always been something else to configure or fix.
If you don't understand any of this stuff, you learn more or have others set it up for you.
Did you ask Netgear if they issued a new Windows 8 compatible CD? They really don't have to since the web page setup still works here (I had a wnr2000 until last year.)
Hello, I am currently trying to get my old netgear wireless router working on my new laptop, I cannot get past the installation cd "welcome" because it says something like supports window. xp, or vista ...I dont have any manual I barely found the cd lol, I am lost now, I dont want to go downloading drivers I dont understand any of that stuff, and yes I had it on another laptop, but it always said "aquiring network address" possibly because the LT was fixed numerous times, I just am lost
