    I just bought the Linksys WAG54GS and Linksys WUSB54GS (was being sold cheap) and I am having a few quirks with setting it up.

    I use blueyonder as my broadband provider.

    When I conected the router to my pc (while following the setup instructions) it could not find the internet. The connection light is Amber.

    (There is no problem with my modems connection, if I plug in the PC directly, it connects fine.)

    I tried to sort out the problem and changed the "mac address clone" setting to a new value (I had a vague memory about a problem that could occur if both the router and the pc had the same mac address on blueyonder)

    I can now get access to the internet (and my other PC can connected wirelessly) but the connection light is still amber.

    Does anyone have any idea that I could try?

    My Linksys WAG54GS router is hardware v5.1 (not sure how that works with the internal memory 16mb or 32mb? ) and with firmware v1.50.5
