Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router
The terms get confusing but we need to know what kind of internet service you use, DSL, Cable, Dial-up? Routers typically work on Hi-Speed DSL or Cable modem networks. There is usually a WAN port and 4+ LAN ports. The WAN is what connects to the cable modem or DSL, and the LAN is where the PC's connect to. Normally everything is plug-n-play but you might have to use an installation disk to configure the wireless access.
HOWEVER if you are using an old, slow, antiquated dial-up modem (some people in rural areas still do!) to get your internet, then using a router for anything other than sharing files between two+ computers is pointless.

I suggest you to get a ADSL router and that will fix your problem. The current one you have purchased is a Broadband router which supports RJ45 Pins and the ADSL supports RJ11 which is what you need.

Yes, you've got a "broadband" router... won't help much with dial up..
