    Hi guys i just purchased a wrt54g router version 7.

    I setup my connection in this way

    cable ---> cable modem ----> wrt54g internet port ---> port 1 of wrt54g ---> my computer's networking card

    I am able to connect to the internet, but when i run the setup cd it keeps prompting me for a password on step 8 after determining the settings.

    No matter what password i put it stills go back to the same screen, i have tried the default password admin and have also left the field blank. Nothing seems to work.

    I have tried to reset the modem. I did research on other forum and have tried ipconfig /all ipconfig /renew ipconfig /release and nothing seems to work

    I also read the pdf file attached to the cd, i can't seem to go into either on mozilla or IE.

    Please help me guys. This thing is really frustrating :mad: and my family members cant have access to the internet due to this. Thanks. I am quite new to the computer a step by step approach would be most appropriate :confused: thanks

    Do an ipconfig/flushdns and check. Also do a f/w upgrade thru tftp.exe (again if that accepts the password). disable any firewall or anti virus.

    First I think you need to find out if you have have obtained an ip from the router.

    ipconfig /all

    If you are getting 169.X.X.X, then your computer has not obtained an IP from the router. Check your network settings to make sure it's DHCP and obtain IP automatically instead of manual.

    If it's a brand new router, then the gateway/router should be defaulted to, if it's not, someone may have changed it. You should be able to see the gateway ip with ipconfig /all.

    Lastly, if all else fails, reset the router and not just the modem.
