Linksys Router and Network Magic

  barnie1 01:44 16 Jul 2011

, I have just purchased a Linksys WAG 120n router with a built in modem. Having used the CD to install same, I downloaded their software, which is "Network Magic". This software is downloaded with a 7 day trail of the most sophisticated version, which is "Network Magic Pro 5.5". Of course, as the 7 day trail starts to come to an end, within the program itself, it invites you to purchase either the above software, or the alternative "Network Magic Essentials 5.5". I decided that I would like to buy this, and when you click the "Buy Now" within the program, it directs you to the American website, where it offers it for the price of $23.99. I adjusted the Cisco/Linksys site to the United Kingdom version, but as soon as I tried to "Buy" the software, and not just download it for a free 7 day trial, it redirected back to the "US" site. I tried, using Paypal and Mastercard, to buy it, but the issue was that the "location" dropdown, did not offer the UK as an option, so both Paypal and Mastercard, would not accept the purchase, in spite of the fact that the purchase was an email with activation key. I sent an email to CISCO but all they could offer was for me to buy the software at another US store!! Can you help?

Thanks for your kind reply mgmcc. It is frustrating that the company want you to buy their products, advise you to download their software (including the UK site), flash up every day that you only have x number of days to pay for it, and then, you cannot buy it. Struggling with this concept I have to say.
