I prefer just bypassing the CD for router installations. Does your laptop have an Ethernet hookup so that you could plug directly into one of the four router ports? If so, connect that way and open up a web browser and go to address 192.168.1.1, that is the default IP address for commercial routers. That should take you to a login screen, the username should be "admin" and the password should be "password". This will get you into the routers configuration page. From here you can use the menus along the left to set up your wireless settings.
We use it mainly for wireless connection. It should work for dell desktop. I am. It sure if frontier is the internet carrier. If so. You should be able to connect it. It took little while before the wireless network is available without setup. Give it sometime.
i just got broadband and when my computer is hooked up to the modem i get 93mb download but when i run it thru this router it drops to 40mb. why May 21, 2014
I wired connection is always (for now) going to pull a stronger connection, where a wireless connection will be 3/4 the strength or less. We simply cannot send the same amount of data through the air as we can through a wire. There is nothing wrong with your hardware, it is simply the limitations of one connectivity method to the other. If you need to remain at your higher connection speed, keep the hard line (through the modem). If you are ok with 40mb/down, which you should be unless you're streaming 40K movies... and you prefer the mobility that the router provides, then leave it wireless. IMO: 40MB/DOWN is a great speed! You're OK! HTH
One year parts and labor, according to the manual. Mine works great and it's a couple years old too. Enjoy!
Nothing was said about your security settings (WEP< WPS etc) I am going from a G to an N and I know all my wireless are using WEP? Jul 10, 2013
I am not sure I understand your question? The device provides the options for various encryption methods thus it is user defined.
I have an macbook air without a cd port. can i use this router without the cd for install? May 26, 2015
Yes, you can. Just follow the router's manual to configure your network. Thx.
LOLOL I hear you. My GUESS is that if Verizon gives you an Ethernet feed from their Fios run, then absolutely YES. My guess is they will try to sell you or "word" you into thinking you have to have their router. Ask them clearly if you will get an Ethernet feed without their router. As part of their service, from some of the FIOS installs I have seen, their "smartjack" has an Ethernet output so you might be lucky. hope that helps.
