I recently bought a WRT54GS because I now have a macbook, and I wanted to share a connection with that with my PC. I've followed every step of CD setup until it reaches to a point on step 8 where it checks the router's status and an error pops up saying "unable to connect to the router! Check that the Router is connected to the computer, and that your Ethernet adapter is working" and I've tried everything from double checking the wires, resetting the router, restarting my computer, unhooking everything and rehooking everything back up. But once I disconnect my original ethernet cable from the router and back to my PC, my internet works. If I connect it to the router, I can't get a connection. Sorry if that sounds confusing, but would someone please help me?
