    I want to setup my linksys e2500 router. but when i run linksys connect software, it gives me Linksys router can’t connect to the internet error.

    i talked to my isp, they told me to setup my router without cisco setup. they have given me some username and password to put it on my internet settings.

    when i try to sign into my linksys router setup page. it asks me to run setup first. can anyone tell me about how can i install my linksys router without cd?

    I have already answered on Linksys router setup at

    you can read it here. I am giving you the answer once again here.

    Providing you very easy steps to setup a linksys router-

    • Open browser address bar and type there router’s IP address
    • The “Enter Network Password” window will appear. Skip username and type the router’s password (admin is the default password if you haven’t changed it) and click the OK button.
    • If you are not able to login try the combination of username and password as admin/admin , admin/password or admin/leave blank. One of them surely give you login access.
    • Now select your connection type Dynamic or PPPOE.
    • If you are choosing PPPOE, type username and password given by your ISP.
    • Click Save Settings and restart. Now your Linksys router is ready to use.

    I have bought new linksys wireless router. I read the manual. they are asking me to install the router with the help of linksys setup disk but I did not receive any cd with my router.

    Can I setup linksys router without cd? If yes!  please let me know how?

    If you did not get the setup disk along with your linksys router. Do not worry at all, you can easily download the linksys connect software from linksys official website.

    After downloading the files. you can simply run it and follow the steps to setup your linksys router.
