    After having many difficulties with 54G, I replaced with GS. Followed the install wizard on CD to the letter. Said configuration was complete, last thing to do was check network connection. Couldn't, so just to get back online, I plugged everything back into 54G. Still no network. I even tried plugging the computer directly into Verizon DSL modem(Which has worked in the past), still no network. I thought the reason the new router wasn't working was the DSL username or password wasn't correct, but it wasn't rejected(Like it is in my home cable modem). I wanted to start all over, but can't without network. Do some companies shut down the signal if the wrong info is input? Any help is appreciated.

    I've never been sure of WHAT those install disk do, so I usually discard them or use them as coasters and du all the configuration from the web interface directly anyway.

    So, to answer your question, your problem is somewhat blurry. All we know is that you used to have internet connection using the 54G and now that you switched to the 54GS (and ran their install CD), you do not anymore, even with the 54G.

    So, you could have had some changes in your computer's network settings, on the modem settings and on the router.
    - computer side: open the start menu, select [Run...] and type [cmd]. This should bring up a black text window. Type IP config /all

    Also, what do you have on your network? One computer? Several? Any other device, like VoIP or cablebox?

    Reboot your cablemodem. this is a known issue when putting in a new device against the cablemodem.

    bootup in this sequence.

    1. Cablemodem. (wait until lights are stable)
    2. WRT54GS (same again, wait.)
