Any help would be much appreciated...

Equipment:
Solwise SAR715 Wireless router/modem [no installation disk!].
Desktop PC running Windows XP.
Laptop running Windows ME with wireless adapter.
Plus.net broadband connection.

As you can see, there’s no installation disk, which is a pain. Can I still set this up though?

First off we need to figure out what type pf connection your ISP uses. Call them and find out if it is static, dynamic, or PPPoE.

Ok you should hook the equipment up and the turn pc on. Once on, Click start> run> type in command and hit enter. Once here type in winipcfg and hit enter. AT this point you will have another box pop up. Here you need to drop down the drop down menu to your ethernet card. Once you do this please get the Ip and Gateway adress. If the adress's are 192.168.x.x or 10.x.x.x then enter the gateway adress into your browser and go. You should get a pop up screen for a user name and password. At this point you need to look at your modems paper work for what this needs to be. Once in the configuration page you just need to set it to PPPoE and put in your user name and password with your ISP. Once this is done save the settings and you should be good to go.

It didn't work! Just brings up an error message when i type winipcfg. The command did work on my laptop, but that's not the one i want to use with the router. Any suggestions as to why the winipcfg command didn't bring up the pop-up box?

It would probably be because Windows XP doesn't use winipcfg, it uses ipconfig. (That's a guess, but one I've fairly sure about.) Type in ipconfig at the cmd prompt.

If that doesn't work, then type cd\windows\system32 then hit enter.
Then type in ipconfig again, that will work.

EDIT: I'm guessing this is the error.

C:\>winipcfg
'winipcfg' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.
