First of all I would like to thank Vai_Fan for his reply, unfortantly it was not the issue nor even close to the problem.
So I have posted the Fix (complaint) below.
Shortly after posting my question I continued my endeavor to figure out the problem.
The problem turned out to be with the Linksys company as with the CD and router there are only "simple instruction"
- insert the CD (befor hooking up the router)
- follow instructions on the CD
As for instructions on the CD there arnt any, Just press ok a million times while it tries to connect to the internt
through a router that is not configured yet because it never told you that you needed to. Oh actualy It does have some
instructions, it tells you how to hook up your router to the modem, great....
The part that they magicly forgot to mention is that the easy link advisor gets ahead of its self as befor you can
use the setup you have to go into the the network tab, find the not well marked "advanced options" box and activate
them. Then from there you can click on and configure your router and setup the nessessary settings for the router.
Amazingly enough when you figure all this out and then run the setup that easy link advisor runs first it is able to
The fix to this problem - Linksys might try not assuming everyone has used their product in the past and instead of
"simple instructions" could possibly give "compleat instructions."
All in all Linksys is still my favorite brand and desighns amazing products.
(Just need to fire the guy maken the instructions)
