Welcome to the wonderful world of networking, Henry! :)

The Speedtouch is a DSL modem and your router WILL require you to insert the information regarding the type of connection you are using.. DSL will usually use PPPoE (Point to Point Protocol over Ethernet) and uses a Username and Password for the connection to be established...

If this were me, I would make a call to my ISP and verify the Connection Type and the Username / Password before going any further... If these are not correct, then you are just wasting your time..

BTW: just because your router tells you the configuration is successful does not necessarily mean you are connected.)

    One more thing.. DSL can use other means of connections, such as PPPoA, so ask that question of your ISP also...

    Actually, I suggest to any user NOT to use the Linksys CDrom when configuring the router. Best to just enter the DG (Default Gateway) address into your browser and configure the router from the config page.. the standard DG for a Linksys is 192.168.1.1



    Are you sure that your ISP uses PPPoE and not another type of connection? This is why I suggest you give them a call. They will be happy to confirm the type, and even may suggest something I have not considered... such as turning your DSL modem into Bridge Mode, which is usually required when connecting a router... (DSL modems usually are by default considered a router, and it is best to configure them as a Bridge when connecting another router to them.)



    Let me know what you find out.

    No, actually I am taking my vacation time right now, and it just so happens the weather outside is lousy, so am sitting here listening to some old Rock and Roll and just watching time go by! :) Usually, since I do Tech Support all day long, I usually do not sit here when I am home, but what the heck else can I do when it is raining and cold outside, eh? :)



    I do have an address that you can use if you care to...



    bpecht@columbus.rr.com



    But, since I am off tomorrow also, I will probably be online then too...



    Till then!

Download installation cd linksys wrt54gs


You could install the Linksys WRT54GS without any CD.

You could use the Linksys EasyLink Advisor to scan your network for the Linksys WRT54GS.

The Default IP-address is 192.168.1.1 so you should be able to connect to the Linksys with your Webbrowser when you do a factory reset of the Linksys.

I am trying to install a WRT54GS Linksys wireless router, on my desktop, but when I get to step 4 on the CD, it says "waiting for router", but after five or so minutes, an error shows up saying ERROR 322. ...


It's possible.. try using LinkSys "Live Chat" if the online help or CD is not getting the job done for you. The support people there should be able to quickly identify the cause of the 322 error.

LinkSys used to have 24/7 telephone support, but that is gone. The Live Chat is the closest thing you're going to get to that.

Good luck!
