Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54GS Router (e125894)
We have a linksys and a HP PC that will not behave, and I cannot work online outside without being plugged up to the router and modem. What is this?

You didn't specify if you're using DSL or cable.
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 connect.
If you're using a cable connection, you don't have to do this, however, most newer Linksys routers come with a 'setup' disk, which MUST be used regardless of connection type.

Has any machine ever successfully connected through your router to the internet wired or wireless?
If not the requirements of your ISP must be reviewed to assure the wan/modem side of your router is configured correctly. This will require at least your ISP (phone./cable company) name or preferably a link to his support web site to gather information.
The manufacturer's and model of your wireless router/access point and wireless adapters (computer if the wireless adapter is built-in) will also be required to acquire common copies of the manuals to facilitate the configuration of the devices.
IF you provide the necessary information in a comment to this problem we can continue to step toward the establishment of a wireless connectin to your laptop.
