Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router
Every now and then i can connect but I only stay logged in for 2min. most of the time it loads half way then stops.
That may be a game issue. It's a on-line game, right? Does the computer lose a signal? Once the connection is out in the cyber world, anything could disconnect you. Have you tried the games support? I don't think it's your equipment. If your devices stay connected to internet, in general, then it would be second life.

If you can connect directly via your modem, then the line up to your house is fine. So no problem with your ISP.
Since you changed from cable to DSL, you might have to re-configure your router.
Open a web browser, type "192.168.1.1" in the address bar and log on to the web based router configuration page. (The default values are "admin" for username and "admin" for password)
Go to "Setup", choose "Basic" and review the entries there. You want to see it configured for "PPPoE".
Some DSL-based ISPs use PPPoE (Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet) to establish Internet connections. If you are connected to the Internet through a DSL line, check with your ISP to see if they use PPPoE.
If they do, you will have to enable PPPoE.
User Name and Password: enter the User Name and Password provided by your ISP.
Connect on Demand: Max Idle Time. You can configure the Router to cut the Internet connection after it has been inactive for a specified period of time (Max Idle Time). If your Internet connection has been terminated due to inactivity, Connect on Demand enables the router to automatically re-establish your connection as soon as you attempt to access the Internet again.
If you wish to activate Connect on Demand, click the radio button.
In the Max Idle Time field, enter the number of minutes you want to have elapsed before your Internet connection terminates.
Keep Alive Option: Redial Period. If you select this option, the router will periodically check your Internet connection. If you are disconnected, then the Router will automatically re-establish your connection. To use this option, click the radio button next to Keep Alive.
In the Redial Period field, you specify how often you want the Router to check the Internet connection. The default Redial Period is 30 seconds.
When you have finished making changes to the screen, click the Save Settings button to save the changes, or click the Cancel Changes button to undo your changes.

You have to call your internet provider and ask them to help you put the Westell modem in "Bridged ethernet" mode. This will by-pass the Westell modem and use your linksys as the wireless.

Sadly, this router has horrible reviews and is known for this problem:
Can you return it for another model?
Can you getLinksys to replace it?
the best one is the LINKSYS WRT54GL, but if you are stuck with the one you have...
If you have tried all these things and you are very brave (or don't care if you need to buy another router) why not try flashing it with an after market O/S?

Check the DHCP scope on the linksys and ensure that the it has enough IP address to lease, Also extend the time it take for the lease expires .

is it a wireless computer or the wired computer?
I believe the main computer is online.
Check the settings on the router.
You will need to open the router set up page.
here you will see the settings of the router.
If you are trying to connect to the wireless
network then make sure that you are typing the
correct network key.
