Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router
The first thing that comes to mind is that your Linksys modem is using the same IP address as the router and it's causing a conflict. The quickest way to find out if there is a conflict is to get into the administration setup on the router and manually change the IP address of the router itself (currently it's most likely 192.168.1.1 - change it to 192.168.1.250). Linksys has most of its devices that provide dynamic IPs set to 192.168.1.1 by default so I would suggest that.
To log into the router (assuming you have your computer plugged into the router):
Bring up Internet Explorer and type in 192.168.1.1 into the address bar.
When it asks for a username/password, type in 'admin' for the username and 'admin' for the password (without the quotes).
You can change the IP address from 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.1.250 on the first page that comes up.
If you're unable to access the setup, make sure the router is powered up and hold in the Reset button on the back for 30 full seconds. At that point the information provided will allow you to access it.
