Hi can anyone help?
I am about to install a Thomson ADSL wireless router VIA ethernet to a desktop pc and the router has been taken from a different pc that was also connect by an ethernet cable.
My question is...do i need the original installation cd that came with the router to install on this different pc. I have the security password (wep) I believe so can I just plug and play so to speak or do i need software installed in the pc. the pc is running windows xp if this helps!
I hear very often that router installation c.d's are not really needed and that they are only for people with less experience.
is the router being used on the same adsl line with the same user and isp?
has 2nd PC ever been connected to the internet? If so it should see the router and connect subject to the above point.
if the pc has not been connected previously there may be a bit of setting up needed
