    Hi!
    I need help with Linksys WRT54G Wireless-G Router

    I need to know which type of cable (crossover, strait through...) will go from souch router to computer (I know it's wireless, but I still need to connect them with the cable), olso from hub/switch to this router.

    I am so bad with cables, neve could remember which cable is used when, plus this is a new tipe of equipment for me.

    Strait through in both cases?

    I'm doing this for a friend who is getting connection from it's neighbor, and hi's not interested in getting wireless nic, but there is a lot more problems than that too, just can't write it all, it is a one big mess and I do regret that I agreed on it, but can't back out now

    Yes. Straight in both cases. The only place to use crossover is when connecting NIC to NIC.
