Connect your computer to one of the LAN port of the router, access the IP address of the router (IP 192.168.1.1), for the connection type choose PPPoE, type the username and password provided, Check the IP address under status (WAN section if the IP address is 0.0.0.0 then click connect)

Then check the Internet connection.

I tried to set up my wrtg54 linksys with my new motorola modem from at&t. The linksys says it cannot find an internet connection. Of course, when ethernet is taken out of comp to plug into router, the...


Good day,
The AT&T modem(Motorola), is actually a modem and a single port router.
To work with the Linksys it must be set up in bridge mode. Then let the router make the decisions.
AT&T tech support will usually not help you if the router is not there product.
On Google, there are many sites that will help with this issue.
Unless you've already done it, you should contact AT&T by phone and request tech support on setting up your modem. They will talk you thru the whole setup, including testing but without the router.
Then proceed with the steps thru Google.
I do not know the settings for your specific router, but the forums will usually help.
I assume you're on DSL. Make sure they know that. Cable settings are different.

I have a Linksys WRT54G router. The power went out the other day and I haven't been able to establish a connection since. I can connect when I run cable from the modem to the cpu, but not if I try using...


what is the model of your modem? if you said that you are able to get online when your computer is hooked up to the modem only, then it indicatest that your modem is not yet in bridge mode. Putting it in bridge mode will make your modem a "pass through" device thereby causing no conflicts in asking for ip add/connecting to your ISP. when your modem is in bridge mode, you should not be able to get online.
after setting your modem to bridge mode, connect your linksys router. if you have a pppoe connection, or one that uses username and password, have that set up in your linksys router. at this point, your router will be the one to ask ip adds from your ISP.

DSL line disconnects on WRT54GS only


Try to change the LAN IP address of your router to 192.168.2.1 by accessing the router's Setup page. You also need to set your Westell modem to "full-bridge mode". You need to ask assistance from your ISP to bridge the modem. After that, set-up the Linksys router to PPPoE then power cycle it.

Router worked. Modem quit. Now it won't work with new modem


Ok in this case the problem is more than likely a generic one for all modems. All modems like to bind themselves to whatever device you have initially plugged in when you plug in the power cable for the modem. My guess is you had the pc hooked up directly to the modem and then plugged in the poewr cable to the modem.

To fix this you need to unplug the router and modem cables for 2 minutes. Plug in the modem with it being hooked up to nothing but the wall [Power Cable and Internet Cords hooked up only; no pc yet]

Your router is probably not need to be bridged so there should be a small hole somewhere on the router normally on the back or bottom saying reset. Press and hold that button with the router only plugged into the power no internet or pc [Although it doesnt matter if the pc is hooked up to the router] for at least 10 seconds. This will cause the router to reset to the factory default settings undoing the bridge. After this time the modem should say it has internet and whatever else except a activity light and similar things.

What you want to do now is unplug the router from the power and hook up the modem to the router and then plug the power cable back into the router.

After all this you should be able to go into the pc and access the router and set up the settings you like or need for the router if you want. Otherwise you should have internet again.

Setting Up a Wireless Network


You can still use your existing Linksys router with your cable modem. In fact the router your have is designed to work with DSL/Cable Broadband connections.

1. Make sure to properly connec the devices in your network. Modem will be connected to the Internet port of the router. Then, laptop will be connected to one of the 4 Ethernet ports of the router. For initial setup of your router with modem, you need to hardwire laptop to the router.
2. Press and hold reset at the back of the router for about 15 seconds.
3. After 15 seconds turn off the router and then turn off the modem. Wait for a minute.
4. Power on modem and wait for the lights to be ready.
5. When modem lights are on, turn on router.
6. There should be 4 lights on. Power should be steady green. Internet, WLAN and Ethernet port.
7. Checked if you have Internet connectivity on your laptop while it is wired to the router.
8. If Internet is working, disconnect laptop from wired connection to the router and check available wireless network that laptop can detect.
9. The default wireless network name that the Linksys router broadcasts is "linksys". Connect to it which is an unsecured wireless network.
10. Once you are successfully connected, check Internet.

Hope this helps!
