tew-452brp router will not install. I receive the following message.
Error Executing file.
the requested operation requires elevation
I have called trendnet tech support but am told there is no one there to help but they will call back but don't. Does anyone know what this message means?

I do not have to install drivers for my router, just connect it to the cable modem, just set the date and time, I have an edimax cable router.

Its the same setup with the edimax wireless router, type in the router's address into explorer to access the settings.

Routers do not use drivers or software. If you have anything that resembles software, that will in fact be a setup utility, which is largely unnecessary anyway, given how easy it is to access a router's configuration directly. Most routers take only a few minutes to configure.

See the Networking forum if you need further help.

I connected dthe router without the setup cd but can't connect to the web.

Did you enter all the connection settings correctly? Picked the correct (UK-standard) protocols? Typed the ISP's password correctly?

Ican't get a window to install this information

You can't access the config screen? That's a problem, because if you can't get it, the config utility probably wouldn't be able to either. You are using the correct IP address, I assume? Double check it to be sure.

You connect the router, then open Internet Explorer, if it's wireless try in the address bar at the top then press enter type admin if a page shows up

I could not get installed and no tech support was offered so I returned the router. Thank you for the help.
