Sometimes these "wizards" fail to work and you need to do things manually. What you need to do is look at the router's documentation and find its default IP address. From there, you set a static IP address in your PC that's within range of the router. Example...if router's IP is 192.168.1.1, make your PC 192.168.1.2. Then, open your browser and access the router using http:\\(router IP address). This should bring you to it's web interface where you will have to enter a username/password. There should be a default noted in your documentation. Once you successfully enter these, you can make the changes you need. Change the password as well. Hope that helps.
im running xp with at&t dsl using a motorola modem. i got a linksys BEFSR41 ver.4.3 router.
the last step in the setup it says can not detect router, yet the connection status is good and the speed is at 100.0mbps. all the lights on the router and modem show a good connection.
i know how to access the modems config. do i need to change the modem to Bridged Mode? if so what then? when i did that the power, ethernet, and dsl lights were the only ones on. but that was about all i could do.
