    Hello guys, I didnt want to have to post, because Im frequent with forums and I know how the noob posts can get a bit old. Well I did several searches and found one post that was similar to my problem, but the solution did not fix my problem.

    Ok, I just picked up a WRT54G v5 router, and also a new laptop (havent even opened yet because I want to be sure this connection will work). I put in the setup disc, went through the steps, and I have a DHCP connection, and I click next and it says something like "Router cannot connect to internet, please turn modem off and back on and try again", doing that does nothing. I have no clue what to do from here, I have went to the setup page, but I dont know what settings to change to make this work. Also, I have a Westell ADSL modem if it makes any difference. I have never used a wireless router before, always have had one computer and just directly connected to my DSL. Im a little frustrated at this point because I had previously bought a netgear router and had many many problems with it and so I returned it, I was thinking going with a Linksys would be a good choice, but so far it has proved me wrong...

    EDIT: I am also running on Windows XP Pro

    Don't use the setup disk. Connect to the router via a cable and configure your settings via the web interface.

    Also power off both your modem and router first. Then turn on the modem, then the router. Then configure settings.

    Ok, I put in all of the configuration settings, and even called my ISP to make sure I had everything right and it still will not work. And my good ole ISP pretty much told me they couldnt help me anymore :clap:

    Any idea whats up, Ive tried so many things tonight and have come up with nothing... Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
