Hello Again, Why wont my router (WRT54G) Let me get on the net? I have to hook up my DSL to my computer before I get to get on the net. When I hook it up though the Router it wont let my computer connect to the net. You have any Ideas? Thanks again for your time..
Yes, you can view the front of your WRT and press the yellow Cisco button on the front and hold it for a second. Do this after you have your laptop or whatever on and DSL connected after a reset of everything.
Universal plug and play will take care of the rest. You hold the button down on the front panel (doesn't look like a button just a light but it is a button), hold it until it starts flashing white and leave it for a few minutes so it can do its UPnP thing.
Hope this helps. Post again with more specifics if the problem keeps recurring. Also if you have changed your DSL password (bellsouth) online you must change it in the modem too.

Before we configure router with PS3, we need first to make sure router is already configure to work with DSL modem. In Setting-Up a Linksys Router Using DSL Internet Service just click this link for reference.
Some ISPs (Internet Service Providers) limit you to *ONE* unique computer connected through the cable-modem (or DSL-modem).
Turn the cable-modem off.
Turn the router off.
Connect the cable-modem to the router, via an Ethernet cable to the 'WAN' port on the router.
Turn the cable-modem on.
Turn the router on.
Connect, via an Ethernet cable, from one of the 'LAN' ports on the router to your computer.
Restart your computer.
You should be OK.
If not, telephone your ISP, and get them to trouble-shoot from "their" end towards your end.
Connect the cable from the LAN port on the DSL modem to any of the 4- LAN ports on the Linksys Swicth (not the port Labelled Internet), then from any of the remaining 4 ports then connect your computer. Also try using a cross-over cable to modem from the DSL LAN port to the Linksys.
If you are getting lights on the Internet LED. Go to the router's setup page 192.168.1.1 and put in your username and your password if you are on DSL.
For cable connection try to reset your router by resetting the router
I'm sorry to say but you cannot bypass the modem capability of the DSL Westell Modem/router because that is really made to function as a DSL modem and a router at the same time, so the best way to make everything work here since you change from DSL to Cable internet just need to get a wireless router like a Linksys WRT54G that can make everything work again like before.....
Make sure that the WRT54G has an internet signal coming in. Is the other DSL router have a wireless component to it? How are you wiring everything? How many ports does your DSL router have? If only one, go from the DSL router to the wireless router. Plug in your phones (VOIP) to the WRT
