How to configure/install router without CD ROM?

I bought a Linksys WRT320N Wireless Router to connect my store's POS terminal, and for a wireless connection for my netbook.  My question is, I dont have a CD ROM drive for my netbook, so am unable to use the enclosed CD to configure and install the router at work.  What is another workaround?  I have a CD ROM here on my home computer, if I configure it here will it work at my shop?  I'm a non-technical person so I need elementary instructions.  Thank you.

You do not have to run the CD to configure the router.You can configure the router manually...Connect the Modem to the Router on  the Internet port amd Computer to the Router on Ethernet Port...Open an Internet Explorer browser page on your wired computer(desktop).In the address bar type 192.168.1.1 and press Enter...Leave Username blank & in Password use admin in lower case...Now,configure the Router as per the ISP settings.

You can download the Setup Wizard separately to your netbook from here:

http://downloads.linksysbycisco.com/downloads/WRT320N_USCAN.4.9.8346.0_PC.zip

Unzip the file, then run it from your netbook in your store.

Are you trying to set up router ?

You can set up your router manually, without the

CD.
Make sure that your computer is able to go online

directly through the modem.
If your computer is able to go online through the

modem
Then you need to connect the computer to the

router and the modem to the router.
open the set up page of the router and change the

settings of the router according to the ISP.
