WRT54G, where can I get the install software?

I got my WRT54G from my son when he moved out of his apartment but he could not find the manual and software, I can download the manual but what about the software? I got laptop for xmas and it has Vista Premium on it and I want to install the Linksys but I am not sure about the software, do I have to have it to install?
Thanks,
Mike

You do not need the software to use the router.
 
Before setting up a router, you should reset it to factory defaults using the reset button on the back of the router.
 
You can then connect to the router by wiring your computer to a LAN port on the router, then point your browser to 192.168.1.1 and login to the router. (Note: Do not connect your modem until after the router is setup.)  After the reset to factory defaults, the User Name is blank, and the Password is "admin"  (with no quotes).  This will take you to the router's setup pages.  All the router's settings can be made from these pages.
 
Alternatively, you can go to Linksys.com and use the "EasyLink Connect" software to setup your router.  This software is optional, and is only used to setup the router.

if easylinkconnect doesn't work (coz sometimes it doesn't work with the vista OS) you can try and manually configuring again your router...

Welcome to the Cisco Home Community.

Pull up your browser and type 192.168.1.1

Log in using admin as the password, leaving username blank.

In 2012 with any modern browser, Chrome, Firefox, Safari, you will not be able to use the web based admin page. The Javascript that generates the page outputs invalid HTML.

 

So, in a word, your're screwed unless you have an ancient computer somewhere.
