I have a Linksys Wireless router doing the DHCP and want to use the Toshiba to connect wirelessly (as a bridge) and use the internal 4 port hub to connect 2 computers to my network. I can get it to work wired but but not wireless. Any help will be greatly appreciated

Unfortunately, you can't use two routers together in that manner. You must have a device in between them such as a switch or bridge or you'll have to disable the DHCP server settings in the second router. The second router then pretty much becomes a switch you may then use all the ports on the second router with the exception of the WAN port it must remain unoccupied. However, if you need wireless connectivity in another location far away from your main router then your only solution would be to indeed purchase an actual access point/bridge device
Different ISPs require different configurations. If you have a Linksys router, such as the WRT54G, there are 2 ways on how you can configure it, either by running the Setup CD or by doing manual configuration. This particular router has its own web utility and you can access it by typing its IP addres on your web browser, ex. http://192.168.1.1. By default, it doesn’t have any username and its password is admin.
Once you’re inside the setup page, you can configure now the router for DHCP, PPPoE or STATIC IP settings. For DSL customers using a PPPoE account, some modem needs to be configured into BRIDGE MODE first and then the router will be set to PPPoE with the correct username and password (given by ISP). If your a DHCP account, modem doesn’t require any configuration. It will work with its default setting and the router would be set to DHCP. Once done, powercycle your devices to establish internet connection.
You want to secure the wireless network. Is there any computer connected to the router with the Ethernet cable? If not then you will need to connect the computer to the router with the cable. Check the IP address on the computer. Open the router set up page. Once you open the set up page, you will find the option to make it secured Click Here for step by step instructions
Are you trying to connect to the wireless network on the laptop ? or you are trying to connect to the internet with the cable. What is the operating system on your laptop ? It is very simple to connect to the wireless network? Click Here for more info
theres a possiblity that the modem is set to bridge mode,in that way,you will not be able to connect to the internet direclty to the modem,192.168.1.1 is usually the deault gatewayy address for almost all verizon modem and username is admin and password is admin as well,if admin didnt take for the password,try using password as the password
I'm not sure what you mean by "connection sequence".
If the modem is on, and the router is set up properly, it makes no difference what's turned on next.
The wiring sequence should be simple:
Modem to Internet or WAN port on the router, any
LAN port to the computer ethernet port.
