Hi.

Are you Using a username and password for your AT&T internet connection? if yes, then try this

press and hold down the reset button on the back of the router until the power light starts blinking. power down the router for 1min.
wire your computer to the #1 port ( modem is not connected to the router )
open internet browser, type 192.168.1.1 on the address bar. type "admin" on the password field.
then you will be able to see the routers' configuration page.
under Internet Connection Type, set it to PPPoE and type your Username and Password that AT&T gave you. scroll down, look for "LAN ip ( usually is in 4 boxes that has 192.168.1.1 ) ". changed the number to 192.168.5.1. then save the settings

just connect your modem to the router, you should be good by then.

if you're not using a UN & PW from AT&T, just changing the ip to 192.168.5.1 will work.

please rate me.. :-)

Hello
Try this

1 disconnect all wires,including power from the modem and router.
2 Find reset button on router usually in the back,need a pen tip or paper clip to hold it in.
3 Hold in reset for 1 min.
4 Reconnect modem first,power up.
5 Reconnect router second, power up.

Try changing the ethernet wire from the modem to the router.

So your going to have your cable coax wire to the modem.Then a ethernet wire from the modem to the router,then a ethernet wire from the router to the computer.

Sounds like you may have one wire in the wrong place.

I hooked up everything right modem to router, router to computer. but i still cant get internet to my computer. if i hook my modem directly to the compiter it works fine but not through the router


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.

How to configure Linksys WRT54G router with BSNL's C2110 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.

My Linksys WRT54G Will Not Work.


It seems that your cabling is wrong. This is what it should look like:
  1. Telephone outlet to cable modem (Via telephone cable)
  2. Cable modem to router (via Ethernet cable)
  3. router via Ethernet cable or wireless to computers
Does your setup look like this? Please let me know if not so we can configure it correctly.
