And to post a 2nd reply to the same message:
i meant to add that you don't need their windows software for anything.
Those puppies all export their UI via a web page. If you don't know what
IP address it is configured for, you should be able to restore it to its'
factory settings by powering it on and pressing the little reset button
on the back of it and holding it for 30 seconds. Then you should be
able to connect a cat5 to one of the lan ports (not the wan port, the
one that would go to your modem) and browse to 192.168.0.1 or maybe it's
192.168.1.1, don't recall which.
Linksys defaults to 192.168.1.1
Configure your computer to either use DHCP or to use 192.168.1.100 (IP),
255.255.255.0 (Subnet Mask), 192.168.1.1 (Gateway) and you can open
Firefox and connect to a new Linksys router by typing http://192.168.1.1
