Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router
I can connect to the internet with just dsl modem connected but when i add in the router it will not let me online can't figure out the problem the router worked fine with digital cable connection
Most likely you have a conflict with the first two numbers of your lan address for the router being the same as the modem. For example, 192.168.x.x and 192.168.x.x. Even if the last two numbers are different you can have conflicts. Disconnect your router from the modem and log into your router. Change the lan address for your router to 172.168.x.x, 172.16.x.x or some other first two numbers. After applying the changes, hook up your router too the modem and see if that solves your problem. It did mine. You may also need to set you user ID and password for your system on the second router. (Your digital cable connection may have had a different lan address that was not conflicting.)

Your router was configured for Cable Modem which is usually DHCP
Now you need to change it for DSL modem. This means you have to change WAN setting from DHCP to PPPoE and enter your Username and Password for DSL service (should have been provided by your ISP)
Some DSL modems that are also routers need to be accessed directly first and have their configuration changed to "passthrough". This means that DSL modem should not be handeling PPPoE login but rather should let your router do the login.
