I got my router and the stupid cd doesn't work not like it ever does anyway. What do I do to setup the network with a different name than linksys and how do i set up a password?

We need more info. What brand and model router is this? You said the name is Linksys but we still need the model. You do not need the CD. I take it you are using this with a Mac? Which model?

MOST Linksys routers you plug in a network cable and open say Safari or Firefox and put in 192.168.1.1 and log in to the router. If it's a brand new router the password usually is admin with no username.

NOTE: Thread moved to appropriate forum. Not just anything goes in Anything Goes

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

Not to sound mean but not all routers use 192.168.1.1. Some use 0.1 and some 1.254.

Right, but he specified Linksys. Every Linksys I've ever worked with has had the same default settings.

Yeah he did say Linksys. There are many who think all routers use the same address. Was just saying they do not. Most all Linksys at least in the past few years have though.

The interesting part is I told the OP how to get into his router. The OP never posted back.

Always post back and let us know if the help we gave worked as in the future others might see this thread and be helped.

I've seen Linksys use 192.168.0.1, and also, when running the automatic setup, if there is a conflict with the modem, it will change the range to 192.168.2.1 sometimes.
