    Are you connecting the WRT54G to the PC with the wireless connection? You do not have to if the you have a wired NIC on the PC with the wireless connection. Click on the wireless connection and click the properties control button. Click the advanced tab and enable sharing of the connection. This will enable ICS and it will automatically assign an IP Address to your wired NIC. The wired computer will have to be a DHCP client, so it will get its IP address and the DNS server addresses.
