Re: Attempting to connect new AT&T Tilt phone to router...

Well... That's an interesting problem.

Try changing the wireless channel that your router is running on via the web interface in the router. See what happens when you try to connect the "Tilt" then.

If that doesn't work, then find out if the Tilt is running on 802.11b or 802.11g. Disconnect all wireless devices from the router and change the router's Wireless standard to either B or G ONLY. (Whichever the phone is.) Connect the Tilt again without any other devices connected to the router. See if it reboots again.

Those are basics for now. I've never tried connecting a phone to a router like that before. Otherwise I would definitely contact your provider and ask them about it. Given that the WRT54G is the most common consumer-level NAT router on the market, they are sure to be having issues with it where other customers are concerned.

Unless another wireless device you have is causing the issue. But that is what you are trying to pinpoint with the above procedures.

Give it a go and see what happens.

Probably your network is secured so you will need to configure connection (provide WEP or WPA passkey to connect).
Double click on wireless network name you wish to connect and put encryption key

Have you unisntalled all the Linksys sofftware through add/remove software. I had a similar problem with an IOGEAR Bluetooth transceiver, I did the setup from the CD, my laptop (Dell C640) blue screened each time. I uninstalled all the IOGEAR software and my laptop stopped blue screening. I never installed the software for a wireless router, I always use the WEB interface and my life is my simplier.
