well, i followed instructions to fully clear the memory of the device, including holding the reset for 20 sec, unplugging for 20 sec and plugging back in for 20 sec more, all the while holding the factory reset button. I did so because nothing else i was trying to fix the settings were working.
If it helps whatsoever, these two attached images are of the ipconfig settings with the router plugged in to the whole mess and, and one without. Im pretty sure that if i want the whole thing working, they must have the same values, but i do not understand how to get them that way
If i do not need a disk, then how should i go about configuring the router to work with my pc? I'm not so smart when it comes to these kinda things, so speak a little slow, i wont be too offended =)
