    Is this an ADSL Router or a Broadband Router, what model is it,

    Secondly to connect your PC via a cable to the Router , you need to set a static IP address of one number up from the router, so in your case it would be

    Default gateway

    Then type in your browser this should get you into the router setup page,

    If your using just one PC on the router turn off DHCP in the router settings and keep the manual IP you just set, if however you plan on using more than 1 PC then leave DHCP on and set your PC to obtain IP by DHCP.

    Lastly and this is my own beef

    "waaaa help plsssss" is not English or any known language, please be polite and say Please and Thankyou.

    You sure about? If he types in the ip of his own pc he'll get nothing. He needs to type in the admin login page of the router (aka gateway), I assume thats what you meant and it was a typo?

    Justone: as Ididmyc600 has asked, we need to know really if its ADSL or cable and what model of Linksys it is. I use both so it may be a model i'm familiar with, although most work the same anyways, kind of.
    You could always trying pressing the reset button for a few seconds, so it reverts to default facotry settings. Thats worked for me a few times. Personally i wouldn't bother with the cd install.

    The CD install is useful ONLY if you use USB as the connection to the router,
    which makes no sense -- all the LAN ports are ethernet.

    Similarly, the CD install for a ADSL/Cable modem is useless too.

    In all cases, we use the OS support for Ethernet to access the devices.
