Hey all,

I have a linksys router that I previously used in a network with my previous landlord to set up a network and share an internet connection. About a year ago, both computers were eaten alive by spyware and since neither I or my landlord had the time or energy to fix the problem, I disconnected the router and stored it away.

Now, about a year later, with a fresh install and having used Firefox to browse the internet and AdAware and Spybot to search for nasties, I'm ready to set up another network. However, the modem doesn't seem to be working.

Using the "easy setup" CD and following the instructions (note above as I have done this successfully) I get an error in the setup which forces me to restart the process. Setting up the rotuer the manual way requires me to enter an IP for the router whcch should bring me to an administration screen but again, another error.

Is there a way to check if the router itself is the cause of my troubles? The right lights are on in the front so I'm not sure what else to do.

Thanks for any future help.

Jonathan
