    Hi, I have a question.

    I have and Internet provider through ADSL, and they have provided a Modem, but I cant use any other modem. Now I have a Linksys WAG54G and would like to use the router part of it, and still having it logging on to the Internet, so that everybody who connects to the router can use the internet right away without the hassle loggin on.

    please help.

    many thanks,

    thanks for the answer. however, I dont mind if cloning is not possibble, but does this mean, that I can not even use the fetauser of logging on to the internet? Does this come together with the ADSL modem part?

    one more thing... how do some people share one ADSL connection? They all log on with the same login? That should not be possibble...

    an ethernet one... links to the pc with a cross-over patch cable...
    the problem is, that I have got 3 pc's and I would love to make it possible for all of them to use the internet.

    You would be better with a WRT54G and connect your modem to the WAN port on the WRT54G and away you go.

    Or if others with better advice?

    PS, Cant you phone your ISP And give them the MAC Addy of your WAG54G

    i recently got a wag54g all u need to do is log into the router settings in the web browser. then phone your isp and ask them for the connection details, and then enter this into the router internet settings. plug your adsl line into the routers line port any then it should connect to the internet

    hope this helps
