Without a broadband connection, you cannot use the router function of the WRT54G.
Log on to the WRT54G configuration Web page and disable its DHCP service (the menu offers DHCP, PPPoE, PPTP, etc) and set the routers default LAN IP to 192.168.0.250.

Then enable ICS on the computer dialup connection. The desktop wired cableshould go to into a LAN port on the WRT54G. Set the laptop wirelesssettings to obtain automatic IP.

Reboot everything, desktop first.

Does it need a modem or works on it's own ??


It doesn't need a separate modem; it replaces a modem in your home network. If it's properly connected to the phone line, and you have an internet service provider (ISP) supplying you with a broadband connection, and the PC is connected to the router, then it should all work fine.

If it isn't all working fine, the most likely problem is either that the wires aren't connected in the right places, or that the PC's internet connection isn't set up properly (e.g. if you changed from dial-up with a modem to broadband with a router).

If you have recently changed from dialup to Broadband, and you're running Windows, use the Network Connections wizard to set up the internet connection. In Windows XP you can do it this way:
1) click on Start
2) move the mouse to Settings
3) click on Control Panel
4) double click on Network Connections
5) click on File
6) click on New Connection Wizard
7) follow the instructions.

Your ISP should have sent you a CD-ROM to help you to connect, so insert the CD when prompted by the New Connection Wizard.

Sometimes you can just insert the CD into the computer and you'll be prompted to do everything necessary to connect to the internet. BT, for example, do it this way.

Good luck!

How to configure Linksys WRT54G router with BSNL's C2110 modem?


The Linksys WRT54G broadband router is one of the most popular consumer routers there are. Linksys makes configuring your router easy. This article will walk you through the initial setup options for this particular model, but many of the basics we talk about here can be applied to any router setup. Setting up the router consists of four basic steps, such as Testing your Internet connection, connecting your hardware, setting up the connection and power cycling the entire network. Aside, from setup, we'll also describe some security concerns so you can make an educated decision on the administration of your home network.
Test Your Internet Connection First While this seems like something you would not need to be, make sure your Internet connection actually works. If you haven't already, plug the cable modem directly into the back of the computer and make sure you can get onto the internet. You may need to reboot the machine first.
Connect The Modem and Router to the PC Now that we have confirmed the Internet connection works, the next step is to connect the modem to the router and the router to the PC. The modem will attach to the router's Internet Port. You will then attach the router to the PC via any of the four Ethernet ports in the rear. Check the LED lights in the front of the router to confirm all of the connections are properly made. The Power, WLAN, Ethernet Port to PC and the Internet should all be lit.
Configure The Linksys WRT54G Settings With all connection made, you will now need to login to the router via your web browser. Type 192.168.1.1 and hit enter. You should see the login screen. Leave the username blank and type admin as the password and hit enter.
You will now need to configure the router's connection to the Internet. Under the Setup / Basic Setup section, make sure the router is setup to Automatic Configuration - DHCP. This allows the router to receive an IP address from your Internet Service Provider.
Next, go to the MAC Address Clone tab in the same area and enable Mac Address Cloning. This allows the router to clone your PCs MAC address, as the ISP may require this.
Power Cycle the Router and Modem Now that everything is configured, you'll want to power cycle everything. This is done to make sure everything has an IP address from the modem all the way through to the PC. To power cycle, shutdown everything. Unplug the modem and router power source. Shutdown the computer. Plug in the modem and wait for all green lights. Next, plug in the router and wait a few minutes until its lights are also green. Lastly, boot up the PC. You should have an Internet connection.
Change the Linksys WRT54G Router Password You noticed when setting up the router, that there was a default username of nothing and a password of "admin." Be sure to log back into the router once everything is running properly and type in a username and change the password. If you don't, a hacker that sees you have a WRT54G router could login to the router with the default credentials.

Doesn't work with windows vista


1. check if there are lights on the specific router port where you have connected the Vista (e.g. if it is on port 2, check if there are lights on #2 at the front panel of the router).
2. check the ip address by going to command prompt (click start-run-type cmd press enter. on the command prompt, type ipconfig/all)
3. ip address should be similar to what your Windows XP is getting. Subnet mask, gateway, and DNS servers should be identical.

Eg. If XP has a 192.168.1.100 IP, your Vista should have 192.168.1.x IP address where x is a variable number other than 100.

4. If your IP address, subnet mask, default gateway, and DNS seems aligned for both PCs, check your browser settings. Open IE, go to tools, internet options, network connection and make sure that never dial a connection is selected.

Cannot change network security


if you change any security setting it likely has to reboot.
if the wireless won't reconnect , start with no security setting for open/no security and see how it responds.
then match the settings exact.
otherwise update the bios in the router.
