I'm currently trying to setup my new Linksys wireless router to my computer but cannot get through the installation process. When i reach step 2 i'm asked to plug in the router but after the progress bar reaches 100% i just get an error message saying "unable to detect router, ensure router is properly connected or trying holding reset button for 5 seconds to restore factory default settings". i'm positive the router is connected properly (i'm not retarded) and i've tried both the five second reset as well as a hard reset (holding it down for 30 seconds and unplugging the router) to no avail.
any assistance would be greatly appreciated and sure to enhance your karmic standing in the universe. if i cant get it working soon i'll just try a harder-hard reset (throwing the router against the wall).
p.s i'm running win98, and my ISP is direcway satellite based internet connection
