Question about Linksys Ultra RangePlus Wireless Routr Router
Im using a AT&T u.s.b wireless data connect card connected to a usb port in the front of my home pc. and sharing that connection out the ethernet port to the new Linksys router and broadcasting the connection wirelessly to two laptops and a ps3.I have been using an old Linksys wireless-b router with no problems except a slight speed loss.That is why I am upgrading to the newer g-router.The only problem I am having is the laptops say Local Access Only now and cant get online.I did a hard reset on the new router and manually set it up.I talked to a tech. support rep. at AT&T and she said I was the only one out of thousands she has talked to that has ever gotten any router to work with this type of connection.But Im having no such luck with the new router.A Linksys tech. support rep. said I need a static IP address but that isnt how the wireless data card works.It dont have a modem for a conventional router setup.I have been working nonstop on this problem for three days now to no avail.Please help.Im out of ideas.

NOTE: The image may vary depending on the computer and modem you're using.
Connecting the Devices Together
After confirming the Internet connection through the modem, connect the modem to the Internet port of the router; connect the computer to any of the four Ethernet ports at the back of the router. For instructions, click here.
Checking the Router's LEDs
After connecting the devices together, check the lights on the front panel of the router. Ensure that the Internet light, as well as numbered light corresponding to the Ethernet port where the computer is connected, is lit. For further instructions, click here.
Setting Up a Linksys Router for Cable Internet Connection
Access the router's web-based setup page. For instructions, click here.
NOTE: If you are using a Mac computer to access the router's web-based setup page, click here.
On the Setup tab, click the MAC Address Clone sub-tab.
Select Enabled then click Clone My PC's MAC.
Click Save Settings.
Click the Status tab.
Check the Internet IP Address. If the Internet IP Address has numbers, this means the router has been properly configured. You should now be able to access the Internet. If you're still unable to access the Internet, powercycle the modem, the router and then restart the computer.
NOTE: If the IP address is still 0.0.0.0, click IP Address Release then, click IP Address Renew. If this does not change the IP Address, powercycle the modem, the router and then restart the computer.
