You shouldn't need a disk to set up a router. Connect your laptop to the router by ethernet cable, open your web browser and type into the address bar. This should open the router's Setup pages from where you can configure it (a) to connect to the internet and (b) so that you can connect to it "wirelessly" and dispense with the cable.

OK, the PC may not have got an IP address automatically from the router. Open the Network Connections folder, right click the "Local Area Connection" and select Properties. Highlight the entry for "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)" and click the Properties button. Select "Use the following IP address" and enter these settings:

IP address -

Subnet Mask -

Default Gateway - (the router's IP address)

DNS Server address - (the router's IP address)

Click 'OK' back through the two dialog boxes. See if you can now access the router's Setup pages by entering into your web browser.

You don't need to do that. Your browser will resolve it.
