On average of about once a week I come in to work to find that we are unable to access internet.We are using WRT54G.If I take the DSL plug from the router and plug directly into my computer, I have internet access.I will then wait for a period of time – sometimes hours, and reconnect the dsl/router as it was originally and everyone in the office is then able to connect to the internet.
Can you give me some clues as to what the issue is and how it can be avoided altogether? I’m certainly no “tech” by any stretch of the imagination, but unfortunately I’m the most computer savvy person in the office, so when I’m on vacation (hiking in the Porcupine Mts) I get S.O.S. calls from the office!

Re: router and dsl issue?
I've run into this dozens of times. With DSL, keep in mind the software
on the PC is what "dials out" to the ISP with your name / password, and
you MUST set the name and password in the router. Otherwise, ONLY the
computer that has the software installed (verizon, etc) will be able to
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Different ISPs require different configurations. If you have a Linksys router, such as the WRT54G, there are 2 ways on how you can configure it, either by running the Setup CD or by doing manual configuration. This particular router has its own web utility and you can access it by typing its IP addres on your web browser, ex. http://192.168.1.1. By default, it doesn’t have any username and its password is admin.
Once you’re inside the setup page, you can configure now the router for DHCP, PPPoE or STATIC IP settings. For DSL customers using a PPPoE account, some modem needs to be configured into BRIDGE MODE first and then the router will be set to PPPoE with the correct username and password (given by ISP). If your a DHCP account, modem doesn’t require any configuration. It will work with its default setting and the router would be set to DHCP. Once done, powercycle your devices to establish internet connection.
First change your LAN ip range on WRT54g, leave the wan interface as dynamic IP client. Connect your WAN port to the DSL router interface. ping your DSL router interface (most probably your DSL router will be having 192.168.1.1). Make sure that your laptop is not assigned with any static IP (Incase you use the laptop in home n work).
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.
your SPA2102-R seems to have one ethernet connection and one internet connection.
your WRT54G-TM seems to have one internet connection and 4 ethernet connections.
What you are trying to achive is; plug a ethernet cable into the ethernet connection on your SPA2102-R then plug the other end into the internet port of the WRT54G-TM
hope this helps, I have assumed that you intend to use a DSL broadband supplier not ADSL.
if you are changing service from DSL to ADSL then your WRT54G-TM needs to be first in line configured and working. then plug the internet port from the SPA2102-R into any of the WRT54G-TM ethernet ports.
1. Unplug your cable/dsl modem. 2. Unplug your Router 3. Plug in your modem ... wait for it to come completely up. 4. Plug in your WRT54G Router and wait for it to come up. 5. Go to your 1st PC and get into Command Prompt. Type is ipconfig /release .... then type ipconfig /renew 6. Check for internet connectivity. Repeat step 5 for for your second PC.
If your second PC is wireless go into the wireless config utility and search for access points. Connect to your Access point and check for connectivity.
If you still have no internet. Press the reset button on the back of the router for 45 seconds while it is powered on. Repeat steps 5 and 6.
Be sure to lock down your wireless SSID so neighbors and people passing by are unable to connect to your access point and do bad things on your network.
Make sure that the WRT54G has an internet signal coming in. Is the other DSL router have a wireless component to it? How are you wiring everything? How many ports does your DSL router have? If only one, go from the DSL router to the wireless router. Plug in your phones (VOIP) to the WRT
