    I recently purchased a WRT54G Wireless Router. I went through the setup through the disk that comes with it, and set it to DHCP (since I'm running a cable connection). I have two computers hooked into the router via ethernet cables, and one laptop wirelessly. When I check the connections on all three computers, it says connected, but I have no internet. So the problem lies within the router itself. This is the second time that I've purchased this specific wireless router and the second time I've had problems such as this. If anyone could help me, or at least direct me to a better model, it would be greatly appreciated.

    The problem may not lie with the router but how your cable modem works (assuming you have one) - it may be MAC Address specific which locks to a particular network adapter. Logon to your router and check your broadband connection. Make sure there is a connection.

    Yeah, I'm using a modem. Here's what I get :

    Firmware Version: v1.00.7, Feb. 16, 2006
    Current Time: Not Available
    MAC Address: XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX
    Router Name: WRT54G
    Host Name:
    Domain Name:

    Configuration Type
    Login Type: Automatic Configuration - DHCP
    IP Address:
    Subnet Mask:
    Default Gateway:
    DNS 1:
    DNS 2:
    DNS 3:
    MTU: 1500


    However, could I change it to static IP, then take the IP Address and the 2 DNS servers I get in command prompt with ipconfig /all and input them into the static IP options, would that work?

    EDIT 2

    Tried that, still no connection to the internet. Any ideas?

    Try set it back to automatic configuration and clone your computer's network adapter MAC Address to your WAN.
