Question about Linksys WRT54G2 Wireless Router
Most of the modems that Verizon (depending which market you are in) techs are using are combination modem/routers, so you may not need to use your Linksys wireless router anymore. Typically the default SSID (wireless signal name) and password (if there is one) is printed on a label attached to the router. You can use this default info if you'd like or reconfigure the router using the following steps.
Log into the wireless router either by a computer that successfully connects wirelessly or by physically connecting with an ethernet cable. Once connected, log into the router by open a web browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Apple Safari), and typing the router's address (usually 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1) into the Address (or URL) line. The default username and password is usually "admin" & "admin" or "admin" & "password". Once successfully logged in, look for a tab or link that says "Wireless" or "Security". You'll be able to change whether security is enabled or disabled, and the password associated with it. Your security options are WEP or WPA (or WPA-PSK). WPA-PSK is the most secure, but WEP is also an acceptable choice. Select the security option of your choice and either enter text into the passphrase generator or choose your own password and type it into one of the security key text fields. If you use a password that is not a plain english combination of letters and numbers, be sure to write it down so that you can enter it as needed on other wireless devices that need to access your router (ie-pda phones, game consoles, laptops, desktops, etc). Be sure to save changes so that the security settings and password is saved.
Let me know how you make out.

The first thing I would recommend is to reset the router to its factory defaults. Then reconfigure it according to your Verizon settings.
There are a number of things you need to set, in order for the router to be able to talk to Verizon correctly. These things such as dns name servers, the ip address you connect to (whether it is static or dynamic), and things of this nature. They should have given you all of this information, and if they did not you will need to contact them first or you will not be successful in connecting.
To be more specific regarding the error message, I need to know the specific model you have as well as the version of the software.
If you need additional help just post another question here and it will notify me that you have.
