Our Wireless router has gone bad. It is a Lynksys G. It is hooked to a Linux server. I bought a new Linksys "N" router. It has "RUN CD FIRST" all over the router, quick start guide, etc. The problem is, I can't do squat with that Linux server. It doesn't even have a CD drive.

What are my options? Can I first set it up on my Workstation somehow? What do I need to do???


T.I.A.

Good question. Our "computer company" did it. We're trying to avoid the $90 / hour charge.
