How do I setup Big Pond installation without CD? My laptop does not have CD drive.



Sorry not particularly computer savvy these days and I want to be able to connect a laptop to my Big Pond ADSL modem (we already have a desktop PC connected), however my laptop doesn't have a CD drive so I can't install the Big Pond software we have.


Is there anywhere I can download the software from?

Hi Sherri,

Which modem did you get sent?

You can either connect the laptop via ethernet cable to the modem

or find the laptops wifi connection in windows and look for the SSID which should be printed somewhere on your modem assuming its a fairly recent one, when you try to connect it will ask for the key which should be the WPA key also on the modem.  Fingers crossed that's it.  Let us know how you go.
