    Firewall perhaps?

    Starting at the start.

    What operating system?
    What is upstream of the wrt54gs?
    Have you got the WAN port conected to your cable/adsl modem?
    Are the link lights on at both ends of that connection?

    Reboot the laptop with only the wireless card in, no other network connection
    Try to browse to http://192.168.1.1
    do you get the wrt54gs configuration page?
    If not open a command prompt, type ipconfig /all and post the result here

    upstream? ihave 3mb down/256k up cable if thats what you mean.
    modem cable to ethernet port labeled internet,then i got a cable from ethernet port 1 to my desktop which im on now
    i dont understand about link lights
    when i type 192.168.1.1 i do not get the config page
    when i type ipconfig /all a little DOS screen flashes up for a split second.
    one of my neighbors has a unsecured network and i can get onto it. they live about 100 yards away so it dont pick up good

    When you type 'ipconfig /all' you need to type in the command prompt. Not in the run window.



    when i type 192.168.1.1 i do not get the config page
    Did you type that in a web browser? Something is drasticly wrong. Try resetting the router and disable any firewall in your system. Try that 192.168.1.1 again.

    You don't need the linksys disk. It will just make things more complicated than it needs to be. Just plug in the router and it will work.

    upstream speed? upstream speed and downstream speed are equal, on a typical router. same speed in both directions. just going by the model number, i'd guess 54 megabits per second (aka 6.75 megabytes per second). it's more than sufficient for a modern residential broadband connection, if that's where your question was leading.

    upstream speed?
    I meant "What device is upstream of the wrt54gs". I was eliminating possibilitys. Zero66 obviously has some idea what he is going but now and again you run across some technically inept person who has got the cables in the wrong sockets or managed to connect an ethernet port to a telephone socket.

    just going by the model number, i'd guess 54 megabits per second (aka 6.75 megabytes per second
    That is the raw speed of the radio interface, not the upstream speed which is 10/100 ethernet. Since it also has 10/100 ethernet ports for client computers I'd expect it to be able to do 100Mbps up minus the ethernet overhead.

    oh. i was confused by your phrasing. "upstream of." never heard people say it like that. i would've said "on the WAN side of," since the stream doesn't flow in only one direction. yeah nevermind.

    hmm... that is an interesting proposition.
