    I have a WRT54G V2 and for some reason with DHCP my IP remains which means no internet. Also my WRT54G fails to work as a LAN device as well! I am unable to do anything with accept edit its properties in the admin menu.

    I have tried everything... DHCP seems to work fine when used in conjuction with my old router, a Linksys Network Everywhere NR041.

    Here are a few screenshots with my settings. If you need more info tell me.

    Thanks... any info is great.

    Based on what I see, I can think of a few things to try.

    1. Make sure the DHCP Client service is started in Windows. Start>run>services.msc

    2. Enter the DNS server addresses in the Static DNS fields. You should get 2 from your ISP and then add your router's address. You could just make your router a DNS relay aka DNS forwarding. With the relay, you only have to add your router's address, ( to the first DNS field.

    3. Make sure these settings for your router are also set in Windows TCP/IP Properties.

    4. Unplug your modem and router. Wait 30 seconds or so. Then power on your modem. After the modem is up, then power on the router. Sometimes after reconfiguring your routers settings, you need to do this.

    Well, that's a start. Hopefully it helps a bit. Good Luck!

    Just to note I use Linux (Slackware 10.2)... Thanks for the info I'll see what I can do. And rotor... that is almost the exact same problem I have. Any more ideas would be helpful too. I'll try them as soon as I get home.

    Remotely resetting of the cable modem by the provider resolved the issue. Maybe the router is fussy. Hope you get along with yours!
