Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router
First thing to try is rebooting devices in this order, 1.Modem, 2.Router and 3.Computer.
If the above did not fix your issue then keep reading.
Plug you computer directly into your router via an ethernet cord and try accessing internet again. If this fixed it, then you have some wireless settings misconfigured. A "hard reset" can possibly fix this by restoring all settings to default. There is a little pin sized hole on the back of your router, inside of it is a button. Stick something like the end of a paper clip into it and press for 5 seconds while the router is plugged in.
If it is still not working then plug your computer directly into your modem via an ethernet cable and reboot the modem then your computer (in that order). Once everything is back up and running, try the internet again. If this fixed it, your router is the culprit and is either misconfigured or malfunctioning. Perform a hard reset as described above to put all settings back to default on your router and try the internet again.
If you still do not have internet access then you either have a computer problem or your internet has a problem or has been shut off.
To rule out the possibility of a computer problem, try your computer at a friends house or work to see if it can access the internet there. If there is an unsecured wireless router that you can pick up from home, try using it just to see if you can get internet access.
If the computer does work when connected to someone elses router, then you need to call your ISP (Internet Service Provider) to see if there is a problem with your account and have them fix it.
Remember that every time you connect a different piece of hardware (router, computer) directly to your modem, you have to reboot your modem so it leases an IP to that specific piece of hardware.
