I have tried using Linksys CDs for two different routers and a PCI wireless-G network card. The router software wouldn't even install, never mind run, and the card software prevented the PC from even booting; I had to remove it in Safe Mode. I'm lucky; I figured out how to install basic drivers and enter all the info needed to get these items to run by reading the Owner's Manual .pdf files. I feel bad for everyday users who need these things and can't get them to run because of these crappy CDs.
Just imagine if Linksys actually made install software as good as their hardware.
I agree with this.^^
On another note, Linksys acquired Pure Network's Network Magic
, and to be blunt its a ton better than the crap they put on the CD's. I mean they could put this app on a mini-CD and included it, there would be many more satisfied users.
