    today i bought a "Linksys Wireless-G ADSL home gateway WAG200G"

    i connected my modem's Ethernet to one of the four ethernet port(yellows) NOT to the " LINE " (gray) ,because when i connect it to the line my linsys doesnt recognizer my modem

    ( the red light on my modem turns off indicating that there is no LAN connection )

    and every thing is ok when i connected it to one of the four Ethernet (yellow) ports
    ( the red light on my modem turns on indicating that there is a LAN connection )
    ,after that i was able to connect to my two PC's wired ,and my laptop wireless ,and it works like a charm ,

    but the problem is i want to connect my iPhone and my N93i to the Wifi and then to the internet

    im successfully connected them to the Linksys via WiFi and even i can change my wireless configuration with them ( login ...) , but i cant open web with them

    and the problem is that my ISP requires PPPoE Username and Password ( wich usually in windows XP i go to connection and then authenticate it )
    but this feature is not found in both of my phones

    and its solution is that i select PPPoE in my router , type my username and password and select Keep Alive

    BUUUUTTT because i can NOT connect my modem to the LINE port (as i mentioned ) on my linsys i cannot use this feature

    so what should i do ??

    the bottom line is " HOW CAN I CONNECT MY MODEM TO THE "LINE" PORT not TO THE ETHERNET PORTS ?????????""

    sorry i talk alot , but i want my problem to be clear
    pleeeeeeeeeeease help :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin:

    With the WAG200G there should be no need for your existing modem... the WAG200G is a combined ADSL2+ Modem, Internet-sharing Router, 4-Port Switch and Wireless-G Access Point in one box.

    The phone line should plug directly into the GREY port and ethernet devices into the YELLOW ports.

    If you have to use the ISP supplied modem you'd be better off buying a Linksys router (WTR54GS / WTR54GL) instead of the WAG200G

    The phone line connector should be smaller than the Ethernet..

    Have you tried plugging the phone directly into the GREY port of the WAG200G as the intsllation manual tells you too? (Chapter 3 of the manual).

    I quote

    i tried that , i connected the smaller phone line from the wall directly to the larger LINE port as you told me ( i managed to keep the phone line in the center of the hole , because its larger )

    but no hope , :confused: still not connecting ,even i set the linksys to PPPoE and every setting is right (VC ,user password ....... )

    please what is wrong , and you said that "" The phone line connector should be smaller than the Ethernet..""

    did you meant that the LINE (Grey) port should be smaller , or the phone line should be smaller ( like mine ) ??

    and thaaaanks for your HELP ,thanks

    At this point I'm sorry, I have no idea... I meant that normally the RJ11 from the phone is a physically smaller jack than the RJ45 of the ethernet cable.

    Do any other members have any ideas here???
