Routers job are to interpret outside world into your own world.
Linksys Wizard will guide you step by step on how to figure out who is connected to what and where.
At the back of the Linksys Router, there is a small white button if not black, in order for any end-user to reset it back to Factory Default. The purpose of Factory Default is to give you a chance to start from scratch!!!
Press that button for the next 30 seconds while unplugging its power cord. After such time, you will need to plug the power cord back on and your will be ale to Re-run your Wizard to confogure your router.
By the way, Linksys routers comes with a CD in order for you to make your life easy. Have that CD ready and install in your local computer.
I hope this helps. I can't give you play by play instructions on the wizard because I don't have one.

It is possible that the routers IP conflicts with your modems IP
This is quite common and the fix is equally common and easy to do.
First disconnect the router and connectone computer directly to the modem.
goto the start menu and in XP hit the run button then type in CMD
a dos screen will open at which time you should type "ipconfig /all" and take note of the numbers esp any IP which are usually in the form of XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX eg 188.8.131.52
One of the numbers you have just written down is the IP of your modem and will be the the one after "default gateway"
Now unplug the modem and plug only the router into the computer and repeat the little test above. If you see an IP that is the same default gateway as your modem you have found the culprit and can now move on to fix the problem.
Connect to the router using your web browser by typing http://192.168.1.1
Whilst here you can set your default username and password for DSL so that you dont have todo it from the computer all the time.
now look for "network setup"
It is here you will find the number you have to change
See section 5 and change the number in the box marked "local ip address" change the third box to say 3 so that the IP reads 192.168.3.1
Now make sure you save the changes and exit.
Time to test it all out so now connect the modem to the line or cable, connect the router to the modem, and with a cable to start with connect a computer to the router and if you set it up correctly you should be able to use the new connection wizard and follow that carefully to the end.
At this point I would do a shut down restart and you should now have wired internet.
To use wireless use the new address for the router which will be 192.168.3.1 and make the changes you need to set up the wireless but make sure you enable WEP or greater If it has WPA that is more secure.

your user name and password have been entered incorrectly, they are case sensitive and must be exact. Make sure your ADSL settings are set at 0/38 (you'll see where)
