Most, if not all, wireless routers can be set up without the software they come with. Here are the step by step instructions for most D-Link Wireless routers, but more specifically the DIR-628.

Step 1: Preparation for Setup

Assuming you just purchased the router, open the package and remove the Wireless Router, A/C Adapter, and the Ethernet Cable. You can leave the CD inside the packaging, you won’t be needing that.

Now before you start unhooking everything take just a second to identify what you have, and where you want to place the router. Your computer should either be connected directly to a Cable/DSL Modem, OR a switch which is plugged into the Modem. If your computer is plugged directly into the modem move to step 2, if not keep reading. If your switch is 5 ports or less you can remove it from the equation and just set it aside because the DIR-628 has 4 slots for hardwiring computers into the network. If you need more than those 4 slots just connect the router to the switch.

<p>It won't take the password</p>
Is the your first time setting it up? If it's not then you may need to reset the router via the button on the back. <br><br>Is it the same router? This model is no longer sold to my knowledge. Perhaps the password is now: Admin, admin, password, Password, or even perhaps Admin123. <br><br>Let me know if this helps.
I'm sorry that the instructions weren't quite simple enough. My goal was to make the instructable easy enough that a person with little to no computer experience could understand and follow theses yet have enough information to appeal to more experienced computer users. If you have any suggestions on improving on my instructable to help achieve my goal is like to hear them. I'm glad you where able to get your router setup and it's good to know their tech support actually cares about there customers.
