I've attempted the simple plug-n-play options (including every variation of re-cabling & rebooting) & still have a really spiffy looking paperweight w/lights! What's the true secret handshake for home PC use?! Thanx!

1. Configure wired via browser.
2. Use either wired of wireless.

That's all.

You MUST plug into the router first with an Ethernet cable to set up wireless. Are you trying to connect wired or wireless?

You have to have software for this. I spent hours trying to get my wireless working . Type in WMP54Gv4 20050503.exe and find a site to download free software.Happy hunting

That's a firmware download.
by Kees_B Forum moderator / October 22, 2010 1:33 AM PDT

That's another thing as a driver. Drivers aren't needed as explained above already.

To bring you up to date. CISCO no longer has the drivers for this model. Customer has to buy the download drivers from another site.

Again. Routers don't need drivers.
