Installing 2WIRE 1800HG in Windows7 (Problem)

by rrugh5 / December 1, 2009 12:51 AM PST

My computer is connected for the internet through the 2WIRE 1800HG router at my syster's room.
It is wired, and it "transmits" on the phone line.
When I formatt my compouter, I install all the drivers and the 2WIRE disk. (Windows XP).
I just formatted for Windows 7, the installation came up, however I noticed it was different from the installation in the XP.
I kept installing, and in the end I had a button "SHUT DOWN" (instead of RESTART wich I have in XP).
I clicked it and the computer shut down. I opened the computer, and A message came up wich says I need to open it as an administrator.
I went to the CD drive, found the opening file from all the files in there, and it said I need to delete the 2WIRE software and install it again.
I tried again, but I had the same problem.
I have tried also to not open the software immediently when I put the CD in my CD-ROM, I went to the CD drive and found the opening file, right-clicked on it, "Run as administrator" and install normally again, but I had the same problem..
