    I've been dealing with similar problems for the 1.5 months i've had at&t dsl. finally this evening the at&t tech mentioned using bridge mode and enabling PPPoE on the Linksys. We'll see if this works for more than a few days.

    Meanwhile, I run my home network as 192.168.XXX.YYY where XXX is not 1. Any one know how to change the Motorola 2210-02 to another group address?

I have att yahoo dsl which I installed about a year ago. The process required bridging the ADSL Modem (in my case a speedstream 4100) and accepting dynamic IP addresses and configuring PPPoE on the WAN side of my Linksys router. The ATT support person walked me through the entire process over the phone even though I was comfortable with making the Linksys configuration changes as I had to do the same in China without technical support. The modem configuration was no more difficult than the router configuration as it was performed from a web browser too. The biggest warning was that to reverse the modem change (if desired) required use of a reset button because the web interface was disabled as a result of the configuration change. My advice to you especially if you are willing to attach the Linksys router to the telco modem is to contact the ATT highspeed DSL support line and see if they will walk you through it like they walked me through it. Reviewing your Linksys User's Guide and understanding the configuration of that device would probably be appreciated by the ATT Support person as well as assuring you can access the Linksys router to configure it during the call.

My linksys router wrt54gv8 not connected to work for my laptop wireless but have connection to my desktop

If I understand you correctly. You cannot connect wirelessly at work with you laptop but you can connect with your desktop.
1. The laptop has to be allowed on the network by either MAC address ( Media Access Control) number or an IP (Internet protocol) address.
2. This is done by the administrator of the router. To allow the device to be seen by the router and and assign an IP address to that device to gain access to the server and be able to connect to the Internet.
3. At work you will have an IT administrator that will give a password/ user name to allow you to obtain access to the company server.
I hope this helps. Have a great day.

Want to connect Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router WRT54G to my computer for internet access.

I don't understand your question.

You connect to a router either wirelessly or via ethernet or via USB. There is another piece you need, you need a connection, DSL, FIOS or Cable. Do you have a modem?

If you have a moden, you connect your router to the modem by the method of your choice (Ethernete or USB or wireless). Then you connect your computer to your router via the method of your choice. I presume you have more than one cocmputer? You dont really need a router UNLESS you cannot put your computer near your router AND/OR you have multiple computers you want to network to your connection.

Sometehing else, is your computer equipped for wireless? or do you have a ethernet card called a NIC (Network Interface Card) and your operating system ... is it wireless able?

Does this help any?

Recently I subscribed ATT DSL Service conflict IP Address

the motorola modem that att is using uses 192.168.1.x subnet. log onto your router and change it to 192.168.b.x where b is any number between 2 and 254 (just not 1). You should also log onto the modem and change the setting that allows it to share the external ip address with the router. You will need to do this if you plan on accessing your network from the internet.

Lost connectivity to network printer when switched to ATT u-Verse

Is the printer connected via wireless? When I recently connected up a new wireless printer to my UVerse network, the printer manual said that establishing the first connection works better via an Ethernet cable directly to the Uverse router. After the printer is set up once, then I could remove the ethernet cable and connect to the printer via wireless from all my computers.
For all wireless PCs that were previously connected via wireless to dsl, you need to create a new network connection for each one, then enter the key that is listed on the side of your Uverse router when prompted. Sometimes it takes a few minutes to establish the connection.
I am amazed that ATT was so unhelpful on these issues. I was one of their first Uverse customers in Texas, and several times over the last years, techs would visit my house to solve a problem or hook something up, explaining to me as he went. That their helpful attitude is deteriorating is a real shame.

Cannot connect with ATT modem

Connect your pc to the ATT box. If online, check the ip address of the computer. If the ip address is 192.168.1.x, then you just have to change the router ip address. The wrt54g ip is, it may be having conflict with the ATT modem. Change the wrt54g ip to
