No driver disk required.
Just about every router I've ever used lets you connect (any op system) 
computer by cable and assigns an ip address.
You then tap in the address in a browser window and 
connect to the router where you will see a comprehensive menu
to change all the functions of the router, including IP range, wireless 
on/off, who allowed to connect, etc etc
