WRT310N- error 321 - ethernet cable not connected

During the cd installation process, after step 4 (waiting for router), error message 321 appears, saying that my ethernet cord is not connected, although it is. Before buying the router, i just used the modem with a usb cable, and thats the only way i get connection from my modem now. any tips on how to get my ethernet cable to work? ive tried power cycling. I am trying to use this router so my brother can have wireless connection.

Hi
 
 Dont go with the error , i came across such instances on a few occasions while users were installing it from CD . (Sounds lamme?right)
 
try doing the set up manually , by accessing the web ui of router .
open internet explorer , type 192.168.1.1 and enter.
 
let me know whats the status?

I just recently spoke with someone on the live chat help, and she ran me through the manual setup. Does this mean that I don't need to use the CD anymore?

Well , u are pretty smart .
 
yep , indeed .
 
There is no need to run the CD if u are setting up the router manually.
and ofcourse in the midst you will get to learn a lot of things as well .(dats the positive part .)
 
and i wont be surprise , seeing u posting answers here sometimes later on ! (sounds good.) ! :smileywink:

Oooh hate to ruin the positive vibe, but the router doesnt seem to have internet connection. My brother's adapter has a 92% signal from the router, yet no connection. The only reason I have it is because I also have a usb connected to the modem. I guess my modem hates ethernet cords. Any ideas?

hi
 
Sighs , dont connect the USB from modem ?
ur modem can only handle one device at a time .
so let modem be connected to router with ethernet cord only!!
 
see if it resolves the issue !

Sorry to say, but that didnt work either. I restarted my computer, and power cycled. No luck. Anything else that could help?
