Which part of the installation are you stumped by? Do you have cable or DSL internet?
Basically, you need to connect the ethernet cable (looks like a phone line cable just bigger) from the modem to the WAN or Internet port on the router. Then, you need to connect an ethernet cable from one of the LAN ports (usually they're numbered, you can connect it to #1) to your computer. You then should be able to go online if you're using cable internet and if you're using DSL, you should be able to dial up. You can then login to the router by going to http://192.168.1.1 in your web browser (Internet Explorer or Firefox) and setup your wireless network with a password, and, if your internet is DSL then you can setup the PPPoE settings so your router "dials up" rather than your computer (this is better than having to dialup from one computer and then share the connection with the other ones on the network).

Linksys is set at 192.168.1.1 with a blank user name and password is admin. if it also is opening your modem page, then disconnect the input from the modem where it plugs into the router, then log into the router. you can also hit start, run, command, then type ipconfig /all and it should show an ip of something like 192.168.1.102 which means typing 192.168.1.1 should log you into the router. so if it gives you 192.168.2.112 try 192.168.2.1. most dial up networks require setting up a ppoe connection so if you did a hard reset it will be in auto dhcp mode and will not work. so get in the router and then call your isp and ask them for the settings.

Please connect the laptop to the linksys router with the cable provided. On the linksys, connect the able in any port from 1-4. Please do not connect the laptop to the Internet port.
From the start menu, select Run. Type in cmd and press enter. At the prompt, type in ipconfig. On the line that says Default Gateway -> this is the address of the router when connected to the computer and (DHCP being on).
Make a note of the Default Gateway and type it in the address bar in an Internet Explorer window. At the login prompt, leave the username prompt blank and type admin for password.
This will allow you to access the web GUI.
Hope this helps :) Kindly leave a good feedback. Thanks...

It didn't work for me.
Should the username be the email address from At&t that controls the DSL line, or should it be the username to get into the Netopia modem?

The Linksys WRT54G broadband router is one of the most popular consumer routers there are. Linksys makes configuring your router easy. This article will walk you through the initial setup options for this particular model, but many of the basics we talk about here can be applied to any router setup. Setting up the router consists of four basic steps, such as Testing your Internet connection, connecting your hardware, setting up the connection and power cycling the entire network. Aside, from setup, we'll also describe some security concerns so you can make an educated decision on the administration of your home network.
Test Your Internet Connection First While this seems like something you would not need to be, make sure your Internet connection actually works. If you haven't already, plug the cable modem directly into the back of the computer and make sure you can get onto the internet. You may need to reboot the machine first.
Connect The Modem and Router to the PC Now that we have confirmed the Internet connection works, the next step is to connect the modem to the router and the router to the PC. The modem will attach to the router's Internet Port. You will then attach the router to the PC via any of the four Ethernet ports in the rear. Check the LED lights in the front of the router to confirm all of the connections are properly made. The Power, WLAN, Ethernet Port to PC and the Internet should all be lit.
Configure The Linksys WRT54G Settings With all connection made, you will now need to login to the router via your web browser. Type 192.168.1.1 and hit enter. You should see the login screen. Leave the username blank and type admin as the password and hit enter.
You will now need to configure the router's connection to the Internet. Under the Setup / Basic Setup section, make sure the router is setup to Automatic Configuration - DHCP. This allows the router to receive an IP address from your Internet Service Provider.
Next, go to the MAC Address Clone tab in the same area and enable Mac Address Cloning. This allows the router to clone your PCs MAC address, as the ISP may require this.
Power Cycle the Router and Modem Now that everything is configured, you'll want to power cycle everything. This is done to make sure everything has an IP address from the modem all the way through to the PC. To power cycle, shutdown everything. Unplug the modem and router power source. Shutdown the computer. Plug in the modem and wait for all green lights. Next, plug in the router and wait a few minutes until its lights are also green. Lastly, boot up the PC. You should have an Internet connection.
Change the Linksys WRT54G Router Password You noticed when setting up the router, that there was a default username of nothing and a password of "admin." Be sure to log back into the router once everything is running properly and type in a username and change the password. If you don't, a hacker that sees you have a WRT54G router could login to the router with the default credentials.
