      router software problem

      Hi , another newbe and another having probs, well my father in law is. He has just had his router delivered and is due to go live in two days. he is trying to load the software from the disc and set up the router in advance. The install stops after asking if he has an activation date and turned off firewall etc. Answered yes to both but install does not continue ?? Sky advise it will not load until line active ?? sounds like a fob off to me. he is running windows me . any advice appreciated

      I think they may be correct, i seem to remember the same thing happening to me, would not install until the line had been activated, then installed no problem.

      There is no software on the disk that is needed to set up your router/internet connection.
      When your line is activated you just plug in the router and go .

      It does have the mcafee internet security suite, which you may or may not want to install, I didn't.

      Hope it all goes well.
