    Hi all,
    I just bought a WRT54G to communicate with my Dreambox( satellite receiver).
    Im totally fresh on routers, so naturally I ran into some probs at once.
    I cant get my PC to connect to router, using the installation CD.

    I have plugged in the cabels as described in the manual, but nada.

    I get an error and it tells me to push Factory reset on the back.

    At the moment I only have my broadband modem (Bredbandsbolaget in Sweden) connected to Internet socket and the other cable router to PC.

    Could there be something wrong in network settings in Controlpanel??

    Im totally lost, any advice??

    Did you connect the pc to the broadband modem first? You have to do this so the setup program can capture the correct settings. I just bought this same router 2 days ago and had the same problem.

    You shouldn't need any CDs...

    Just plug an ethernet cord into the 54g from the computer into port 1-4 and go to

    Then you should be able to connect to it.

    BTW plug your modem into the internet port.

    Hope that helps

    you mean I should connect modem during Internet installation and then connect the cables correctly?

    Hi, I hooked up my router and computer like shown at first and then I had to go back and hook my PC direct to my DSL modem during the first part of the installation process. I think it does that to capture the settings of the modem, IP, etc. After that it said to hook up the pc to the ethernet port of the router and then the DSL modem to the internet port of the router. Continue with the installation and everything should work.

    Good Luck
