    Hi -

    I have just converted from ADSL broadband via phone line to bb via cable modem (Telewest). I want to connect the cable modem to the WAG54G so that I can use the wireless capabilities without the ADSL component.

    Every time I connect an Ethernet cable (straight or crossover) from the modem to the WAG54G the WAG54G's lights start flashing and I'm not able to connect out.

    Any ideas would be really appreciated.

    The WAG is not able to be connected to an external modem. You should think to sell it and by a router ( wrt or equivalent)

    Thanks Booly. Now I don't have to spend more hours trying to get it to work!
