I think the problem is that the WGA54G is set up by default to clone the MAC address of the device it was first hardwired to. If you hardwire your gaming adapter to a router and do not disable MAC address cloning, the router's IP address will be cloned and the router's web-based menu system will no longer be accessible.

I resetted my gaming adapter by pressing and holding the reset button for 30 seconds. I then set my PC's network adapter IP to a static IP address of 192.168.1.249. I then connected the WGA54G via ethernet to my PC, used the Linksys CD/Setup Wizard, and configured the gaming adapter to run on 192.168.1.250.

The net result (no pun intended) was that I can connect wirelessly to my XBox using 128-Bit WEP and MAC filtering. I am still having trouble using SMB shares, but I'm (mostly) happy with the results.

Download Network Magic (no need to buy, free one will work) once installed look at your network map, you should see your router click on it and note the IP address. Type this address into your browser.

You might need to "reset" your Router. These usually have a reset button located on the back (Small pinhole kind) Press it and hold for about 10 Seconds till the router flashes or restarts completely. This takes you to the factory settings.

If you realize the laptop picking up a linksys network, then you are good to go.

Using your laptop, type the address http://192.168.1.1.

For user name and password, use either of these options: admin/admin or admin/<blank> (User/Pw) respectively.

You can now configure the router according to your wish.

Wireless not working, asking for password??


Open your web browser and go to the URL http://192.168.1.1. This will take you to a web page with a popup box which asks you to enter a username and password to login required to login to your router. On older Linksys routers, the username is set to "blank" and the password is set to "admin" (without the quotes). On newer Linksys routers, both the default username and the default password are set to "admin". Click on login. You have logged in to the Administrator account and are now able to access and change the Security WEP password. Remember to also add the new password to your wireless adaptor on your laptop when prompted. Good Luck...

I have a two wire router trying to hook up to run my laptop


You need to run from the DSL modem into the ethernet port at the very top of the 1701hg. Use your other 4 ports below to send one the computer and one to your vonage. You will no longer need to "jump" though your vontage unit. Other than connecting the power cables, you are all hooked up.

Wireless router


The problem is the Linksys wireless router is not properly configured. Try downloading the automatic configuration file which can be accessed from the Linksys site for your specific model wireless router.

Hope this helps you.

Re-installing my linksys


Before you can use your linksys router again, you must configure first your AT&T modem under bridge mode. If the AT&T modem is already set to you may connect the devices (modem router and PC) must be switched OFF first.
after the devices had been connected,...
1) turn ON the AT&T modem first, wait for the DSL light to stay solid
2) turn ON linksys router,wait for the lights to stay solid
3) turn ON computer,wait for your desktop screen
4) try to access Internet Explorer
