So i got this router in a trade, I don't really need it but would like to make a couple bucks off of it. It did not come with a cd, everyone swears you don't need the cd and can set it up via, But my problem is i cant access the web browser based setup. I have tried checking the default gateway via run>cmd>ipconfig and there isn't one, with or with out the Cable modem connected. I do have Charter cable if that is necessary but i do have a Linksys E1000 that works fine with this modem. Does anyone know where i can get an installation program for the router or to check and see if it is bricked. It is a WRT54G v2

If the reset above does not work, may be a bad router. This model has a pretty bad reliability history, drops out wifi a lot, sometimes totally fries. Could be just a bad router someone is trying to pass on.
