To access your router you should goto http://192.168.0.1 - It should explain in the manual.

You may have to set the router in Cable Modem mode as it may be in DSL mode now.

I hope this may help.

ALSO! There should be a little hole in the back that you can put the tip of a pen into to press a button and it will reset the router back to factor defaults. Default settings would be cable modem mode. Be sure to have the router powered on and press the button down for 10 secs and notice the lights on the router should flash. After that power down the router, by unplugging the power and the plug it back in. It should be set back to factory defaults.

How do I connect to my computer with AT & T DSL connection? I only see one ethernet port on back of computer tower.


If you just bought the router, you will need to insert the router between your computer and your ATT DSL Modem. The cable from the wall goes into the modem (should already be that way) then the Ethernet cable from the modem should now go to the source of your Linksys Router. then use one of the ethernet ports from your router into the ethernet port on the back of your computer tower.

Use the documentation that came with the Linksys for more information on setting it up.

Good Luck

HOW DO I CONNECT DSL LINE TO LINKSYS WRT54GS


The WRT54GS does not have a jack to connect a phone/DSL line to, so in order to use this router with a DSL connection, you'd have to connect the DSL line to a modem and then connect the modem to the router, or connect the DSL line to a computer if you have an internal modem, and then connect that computer to the router.

Switched from DSL modem to Cable modem. Linksys


If you had your linksys router controlling the DSL connection, it was most likely a PPPoe connection requiring a username and password. Most cable companies have dynamic IP address and do not require a username or password.

Open your internet browser, IE, Firefox etc and go to 192.168.1.1 >
Enter your router username and password, typically admin and admin

In the setup tab, change your connection FROM whatever is listed there and make sure it is Autumatic DHCP Save your settings, and restart the router.

You should be fine.

Lost installation cd


The installation CD is actually just a guide. It does not install any software on the computer. You can configure/reconfigure the router even without the installation CD.

If you need help reconfiguring the router, please let me know.

Please provide also the following info:
1. Who is your Internet Service Prodiver?
2. What is the model/brand of your modem?

Ic help


Scenario 2 to 4: Scenario 2) The modem does not have an Ethernet port. The modem is a dial-up modem for traditional dial-up service. To use the Router, you need a cable/DSL modem and high-speed Internet connection.

Scenario 3) You cannot use the DSL service to connect manually to the Internet.
After you have installed the Router, it will automatically connect to your Internet Service Provider (ISP), so you no longer need to connect manually.

Scenario 4) The DSL telephone line does not fit into the Router’s Internet port.
The Router does not replace your modem. You still need your DSL modem in order to use the Router. Connect the telephone line to the DSL modem, insert the setup CD into your computer, and then follow the on-screen instructions

Linksys Wireless-G (WRT54GS (EU/LA/UK))


I have had that issue quite often and found that when you are using a router with DSL, the DSL modem and Router IP has a conflict because they are the same number. I suggest looking into a D-Link wireless router for use with DSL.
