router trouble

    Hello. I recently switched internet providers (from Earthlink to Verizon). So they suggested I switch the Earthlink modem I was using with another modem they sent out to me, so I did. After setting everything up, I got the internet working on this computer. I had to remove all the wires and replace them with the ones Verizon sent me. So I hooked the last available wire, the Ethernet cable, to the router. I'm not exactly sure if that's the cable I'm supposed to hook up to it, but it was the only cable that wasn't occupied. Now the only wires in there are the power cord and Ethernet cable.

    But when I try to connect to the wireless internet using my laptop, it's able to connect to my username, yet I do not get access to the internet. It's a WRT54G router. I was able to access the internet on my laptop before switching internet providers, but now I'm not sure what to do to have wireless internet access. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Your problem most likely has nothing to do with wireless - the internet connection is established on how your WRT talks to the modem, and the modem to the internet line. Check with your ISP on how the router --- modem connection should be set up, as now you do not want your PC to talk to the modem, but you want the router to talk to the modem, and your PC just talks to the router.
