    ok I have the WRT54G V5 (<<< yeah I know...) and i have all the wires hooked up right, because my desktop computer has internet... but I have my laptop and I can see the wireless network, and I can connect to it, and the wireless network connection says that I am connected to it BUT I cannot get on the internet or set up a network, ive been trying for almost a week now and I havent had any luck.
    If you are connected to a wireless network does it hook up to the internet automatically? or what do you have to do to get internet on a wireless device?

    You may not be picking up DHCP from the router.

    If DHCP is enabled on the router, make sure the TCP/IP settings in your computer are set to "Obtain IP address automatically" & "Obtain DNS Server address automatically"

    Good Luck
