Default centering a router in a table

I have done some woodworking but not with a router. I have a new Hitachi router and making a table for it. One problem. I purchased a samona top and my problem is that I can't centre this router in the hole that is provided in the table top.
Suggestions?

Not having any idea what a samona top is or looks like it would be difficult or impossible to give you an answer that makes any sense. Is it possible for you to post a picture of your set up? This would greatly increase you odds of getting an answer to your problem.
Having said all that. Have you tried using a bushing mounted on the table to center a bit of the same size as the bushing in your router to the table?
