    Ok Im doing this remotely so bare with the explenation.
    Remote office is a simple cable modem ----> wrt54g v2.2 ------->single pc \ single mac laptop.
    When the PC or Mac are directly connected to the cable modem they get connected and can browse the internet (only one at a time btw).Now they plug in the router and then connect themselves wireless or wired to the wrt54g,they connect to the router but cant browse the internet.WRT54G is getting a WAN IP address as it should and the remote office is able to log into the router and make config changes, they can also run diagnostics and ping the www from the linksys router. I can also remotely connect to the linksys router and make config changes if needed, I can also from the linksys router ping the PC and the MAC. Now the unit was runnign one of the thibor firmware and since the issue started i downgranded back to the standard linksys firmware,still no luck.....any one have any ideas please

    The cable modem sees a new mac address when you plug in the WRT54G. and needs either ac cloning or a reboot to allow internet connection to work.

    Easiest option is to rebooting devices in this order.

    Cablemodem. (wait until lights are steady)
    then reboot WRT54G (wait until lights are steady)
    Then reboot pc/laptop.
