      Install freeze with CD for new Netgear router.

      HI, I'm trying to run an install for a customer.
      They have the latest Netgear router.

      I was getting nowhere with the CD so serviced their PC (it needed it anyway!). But I have the same problem still. The program hits 99% utilization and just sits there.

      I managed to get to page two eventually, which is an alert window, but I can't close that to complete the install.

      With the old DG834 router I was able to manually set up broadband if i hit these problems, but I've no idea what I might be getting into with the new one.

      Any advice gratefully received, thanks.

      As far as I know, the new Netgear router doesn't need the CD any more than the old one did.

      The cd is only there to install McAfee (which is downloadable from Sky.com) and it updates Internet Explorer. When you tried loading the CD did you have any other firewall installed and what operating system are you running?
