Hi, I'm new to wireless internet and have a ?.  I purchased a Wii setup and want to connect it to the router.  I have tried many times to hook it up and keep getting a no go.My son set the router up with his laptop and now he has gone back to collage.  My computer hasn't got the software loaded on it for the router.  If i put the cd in my computer it asks for password and such, son says he didn't put one in, but still can't get by that screen.  We have three other computers hooked to the router now.  If i go and reset the router what happens?  Do i have to reset all computers to work off the router both  Main and guest.  Any help will be appreciated.

I have this problem too.

You can find the E2000 manual here:

This question is better asked on the Linksys forums at

How did he set up the 3 PCs?  If he used the Easy Setup Key method, he would have never set a password.  However, the Wii does not support the Easy Setup Key method.

I see you have two networks, Main, and Guest.  Do the 3 other PCs use Main?  Since the Wii uses Internet access only, it would be OK to have it use "Guest"  Just see what the password is for the Guest in the "Guest access settings" screen of the router.  See the manual to see how to get to that screen.

You can configure the router without the CD by using a web browser on one of the attached PCs.  You would type "" into the browser "address bar" on any attached PC and log in with username admin and password admin, if those passwords were not changed.
