The WRT54GS does not have a jack to connect a phone/DSL line to, so in order to use this router with a DSL connection, you'd have to connect the DSL line to a modem and then connect the modem to the router, or connect the DSL line to a computer if you have an internal modem, and then connect that computer to the router.

How do I connect to my computer with AT & T DSL connection? I only see one ethernet port on back of computer tower.


If you just bought the router, you will need to insert the router between your computer and your ATT DSL Modem. The cable from the wall goes into the modem (should already be that way) then the Ethernet cable from the modem should now go to the source of your Linksys Router. then use one of the ethernet ports from your router into the ethernet port on the back of your computer tower.

Use the documentation that came with the Linksys for more information on setting it up.

Good Luck

Can connect with full signal takes a long time to connect even after i have done factory restore


if dsl setup the modem to log in. if broadband, check timeout and mtu settings. mtu around 1560 is best . Also make sure gateway setting both ways, router / gateway timeout should be always on , not on demand. good luck.

Switched from DSL modem to Cable modem. Linksys


If you had your linksys router controlling the DSL connection, it was most likely a PPPoe connection requiring a username and password. Most cable companies have dynamic IP address and do not require a username or password.

Open your internet browser, IE, Firefox etc and go to 192.168.1.1 >
Enter your router username and password, typically admin and admin

In the setup tab, change your connection FROM whatever is listed there and make sure it is Autumatic DHCP Save your settings, and restart the router.

You should be fine.

The linksys wrt54gs-uk


With a DSL modem in the US, you need to confiugre the router for PPPOE with the username/password that was provided to you by your ISP. If you can't remember the name or password, contact your ISP

DSL line disconnects on WRT54GS only


Try to change the LAN IP address of your router to 192.168.2.1 by accessing the router's Setup page. You also need to set your Westell modem to "full-bridge mode". You need to ask assistance from your ISP to bridge the modem. After that, set-up the Linksys router to PPPoE then power cycle it.

Linksys Wireless-G (WRT54GS (EU/LA/UK))


I have had that issue quite often and found that when you are using a router with DSL, the DSL modem and Router IP has a conflict because they are the same number. I suggest looking into a D-Link wireless router for use with DSL.

WRT54gs' internet link wont come up


Here's a couple of places to get started:-

1. If you're on the internal network, try logging into the router's admin page, and iff you can see link to the cable modem / DSL line "Internet Interface". Try Refreshing DHCP on that interface.

If it's not looking great, or it's not serving out DHCP, do a quick powercycle on the LinkSys and see if that clears it (I would guest you've tried this though!)

2. Check your cable modem / DSL line box and ensure that all its lights are as normal (Without Make / Model etc I can't help you in detail there.

3. Try powering off your cable modem / DSL box and then your link sys. Wait 10 minutes (Yes, that long, there are reasons for that involving the upstream network). Powerup you Cable Modem / Link Sys box, once that looks healthy (Maybe 2 minutes to boot with some models) power up your LinkSys and see how things look then.

If you're still not having luck, unplug the power from the LinkSys again. Press and hold the "Reset" button, keep it pressed, and reapply power. Count to 10 before letting go. Wait a second or two, then press and hold the rest button again for another 10 secs. See how it looks then.

4. If all of the above doesn't help, call up your ISP and ask them to run a diagnostic on your Cable Modem / DSL Modem.

5. If you CAN get to the web page on your LinkSys, and you KNOW the cables are good then you should try putting the original firmware back and see how things go then.

If you're still having issues after all of the above I'd suspect you have faulty hardware.
