    My current setup is an iBurst modem plugged into the ethernet port of my WRT54Gv5 router and connecting via PPPoE to my provider. Works a charm. I will however be changing from wireless to ADSL shortly.

    The ADSL provider will be providing me with this Billion modem. So it looks like the ADSL line will feed into the modem, it will do the connecting and it can share the connection with my wireless devices.

    I assume that the linksys won't be able to take the DSL cable? If not, what other uses can I get for the router?

    I am currently using a ADSL line with Covad and I had a WRT54G version 5 that worked great with the connection to the DSL modem.
    Most DSL providers use PPPoE and the WRT54G works fine with it.

    im on adsl too, but its a pppoa system.

    PPPoE - Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet
    PPPoA - Point-to-Point Protocol over ATM

    both are used by dsl providers, but it should have no effect on ur network. take the eth0 conn from the modem they give you and hook it to ur router, all should be sweet.

    i use a AG241 adsl gateway and a wrt54gs for wifi.

    the AG241 has never let me down, i consider it a stunning peice of equipment.
    the only time i have been offline is when my isp has screwed up, which is rare.

    So is it not possible to have the the connection straight from the phone jack to the WRT54Gv5 (if there si a cable that can fit into the phone jack on one end, and the router on the other)?

    You will need a modem between the router and the phone line.

    Computer --> WRT54G --> ADSL Modem/Router --> Internet

    1. If the ADSL modem/router is in Bridged mode, would I put the PPPoE login 1details of my ISP into the WRT54G and this should connect?
