    Hello, there. New guy here. :) I got my new linksys router a little while ago (WRT54GL) after I had messed up my other linksys router (WRT54GS). Before I even connected the router up I popped the CD in my PC and ran setup wizard. I followed the instructions in the setup wizard and when I was done configuring my router it tried to connect to the internet. It was unable to and it basically told me to unplug and replug my cable modem. I did that a few times but I kept getting the same message that it couldn't connect. It was until I was looking at the front of router and would you beleve the horror: the "Cisco Systems" diag button was SOLID RED. Now I know that solid red means something is MAJORLY wrong with the router and that it was probably the reason that I couldn't connect. But the thing that puzzles me is that HOW and WHY did it turn red in the first place. I plug the cables in the right places and I followed the instructions. So is there anybody that can tell me what I did wrong and guide me in the right direction? Any help would be appriciated. Thanks!
