Based on what you provided me (thru message), here are some steps you could try: INformation: Modem: zyxel IP: 192.168.2.1 3 wired computers, 2 wireless router: WRT54GS IP Address: 192.168.2.1 Solution you can try: (but still it would be best to contact Linksys) 1. Establish your physical connection (modem-- router-- 3 wired computers) 2. Hard reset the router. Push reset button for 30 seconds then power off router. 3. POwer off modem and computers. Wait 1 minute. 4. Power on modem first, check stable lights. 5. Power on the router, wait for the power light to be solid. 6. Boot up all computers. IP should be 192.168.1.xxx and default is 192.168.1.1 7. Check Internet. You should be up and running on all 3 wired computers For the wireless, connect to your signal and that's it. Hope this helps!
