Question about Linksys WRT54G2 Wireless Router
I have a Linksys WRT54G2 router set up at my house. My computer detects it but for some reason I can't connect to the Internet. I can get on my router's page, but the wireless network just won't work. When I click "diagnose and repair," the same error message keeps coming up: "There may be a problem with DNS configuration..." In the router page under "Status" and "Router," the IP address, subnet mask, and default gateway are all zeros. There isn't even any text for DNS 1, 2, or 3. If it makes a difference, I'm running under Vista.
It sounds like your router is not getting an ip address from the modem. Try powering off both router and modem, power the modem on first, wait about 2 minutes then power on the router making sure the ethernet cable is connected to your modem. Once the router is up and going, check the router's setup page and see if you have an ip address. Post your results here when you are finished.

If there is only zero on the ip add, sub mask etc then it would never work.Make sure your router is connected to a modem and that the latter can be hooked directly to a pc with cable and test if there is an internet connection. If there is a connection go back to your pc and connect to your wireless.Then go to start>cmd, a black screen would appear and type the following : ipconfig /iprenew .Then afterward type ipconfig and see if the zeros' you mentioned earlier changes to a value to the format of x.x.x.x .This should solve your problem.
