Skip the CD
on August 10, 2014
Tiny router! Way smaller than it appears in pic. Seems to run cool and fast enough. I have one LAN port going to a Netgear wireless router. I have 2 computers, a voip phone, 3 blue-rays, and 2 cell phones running through it (not all at the same time.) Some are connected to the wifi, but it is still ultimately going through this router.
The CD is not necessary (it actually seems to be useless for this model). Just connect router to your computer via ethernet cable in the LAN ports, connect the incoming ethernet cable from your modem to the WAN port on the router, connect the power cord to the router, then power off your MODEM, wait a few seconds, and power it back on. Then it should be up and running in a minute or so.
Contrary to a prior review, I have 6 web pages open, streaming Dave Attel on Pandora, and using my voip phone... Maybe his computer just su#$s!
