    Wow... i'm definitely not posting a "solution" for this one... mostly because i'm quite sure you can't do that. My WRT54GS has no option for shutting down ethernet ports, and i'm using third-party firmware that is much more flexible than Linksys' firmware.



    Now out of morbid curiousity... why? why do you want to turn them off? It won't save power... is it for security reasons? If so, just don't configure the hub part of the router for anything (or misconfigure it so that those ports are unusable)

You cannot turn off the individual ports of a linksys wrt54g router. you can try to disable the local area connection of the computer that uses the particular port of the router.

The router is saying there is no internet connection from the router to the modem.. Please help cause i have internet from modem to computer..


That means that the communication is cut from router to modem. You need to find out what is the problem.
1. check if the network cable from is still working or properly connected2. try a different ethernet cable or network cable from router to modem3. try some other dsl ports (yellow ports) at the back of your modem for ethernet cable connection to the router.4. switch ends of the cable you are using
these steps should fix the problem for if you are going to analyze, the line break comes between the router and modem and the only means of communication of your router and modem are cable, modem port (for the network cable) and router port (for the network cable) which means that the problem is within that point only. This should fix the issue.

Configure Modem Echolife HG520s With WRT54G OR WRE54G


Not sure if I understand properly but your router should have a WAN port or an "Internet" port

your modem should be connected to it and your PC should be on any of the LAN port

Sound like you have a bad network card on the PC or the router ports have gone bad.
Have you tried different ports on the router?
The problem could also be in the ethernet cable.
Try another cable and see if that makes any difference.

Need to add Linksys WRT54G-TM wireless router with Linksys SPA 2102 phone adapter


your SPA2102-R seems to have one ethernet connection and one internet connection.
your WRT54G-TM seems to have one internet connection and 4 ethernet connections.

What you are trying to achive is; plug a ethernet cable into the ethernet connection on your SPA2102-R then plug the other end into the internet port of the WRT54G-TM

hope this helps, I have assumed that you intend to use a DSL broadband supplier not ADSL.

if you are changing service from DSL to ADSL then your WRT54G-TM needs to be first in line configured and working. then plug the internet port from the SPA2102-R into any of the WRT54G-TM ethernet ports.

Add di-704p to an existing network


What you want to do should be quite easy:

1. Just connect one of the LAN ports of the DI-704P to a LAN port of your WRT54G. Try using a standard network cable. If the port status lights does not turn on on both sides when you connect the cable, use a "crossover" cable. Important: leave the DI-704P WAN port empty.

2. Disable the DHCP server on your DI-704P, your WRT54G will be the DHCP server.

3. Assign a static IP address to you DI-704P, different from your WRT54G. Example, if your WRT54G has 192.168.2.1, you may assign 192.168.2.4 to your DI-704P. Make sure that the IP address you assign is outside the DHCP range configured in your WRT54G and that the subnet mask is identical on both.
You will then be able to use your print server from any wired and wireless computer and the remaining LAN ports both on the WRT54G and DI-704P.

Pls. help


When dealing with a router there are multiple IP address scenarios, on the internet service provider's (ISP) side you can have either a static or dynamic IP address. I believe most routers by default are set to accept a dynamic IP address from the ISP. Where the ISP permits the router can also assign IP addresses to each device that attaches to it allowing a single ISP connection to be shared by multiple computers. This is also generally the default for routers purchased for home use and the wireless adapters also accept the dynamic IP assignment from the Router. With the logical discussion out of the way I believe you wish to discuss the physical connections to be established. Again this is a generic discussion not knowing your specific environment. port types - I will refer to phone ports (technically RJ-11 either two or 4 wires (these cables plug snugly into phone jacks and modem connectors) and ethernet ports (technically RJ-45 which are 8 wires and to big to fit in phone and modem ports) First you have a connection provided by the ISP for DSL this is your phone line where filters are attached to your voice phones and an unfiltered phone connection goes into the DSL modem's phone port often with an ethernet port. If you have cable generally the cable company provides a connection to a cable modem which has an ethernet or other port to connect to your system. The ethernet port generally connects to the wan port (generally separate) of your wrt54g router with an ethernet cable. Computers can be attached to the wrt54g router using the 4 ethernet ports in a group provided they have an ethernet port too. Wireless cards connect to the wrt54g router through radio waves and with antennas on the router and often internal to the wireless adapter (often embedded in a notebook computer today). These details are enclosed with your ISP's instructions and the Linksys router instructions often with pictures to help the explanation.
