Help!!

I have dsl thru verizon who sent me a westell 6100 modem. I purchased a wrt54g linksys router and have installed the firmware on the website from linksys. however i still cannot connect to the internet thru the router. i'll be glad to provide any information to help someone with my cause.........I'm on AOL Secure 9.0 , compaq computer running widows xp, hp pavillion running xp. The pavillion detects the wireless network and can access some of the network folders, but no internet. Also, should my router show up as a device on the host computer, the compaq? I can't find it in the device manager.

Can you use a PC to download and save to disc then run it on your PC

http://www.geekstogo...n=download&id=7

If it still does not show in device manager

Click start then run, type prefetch then press enter, click edit then select all, right click any file then click delete, confirm delete

Click start, all programmes, accessories, system tools to run disc clean up, then from system tools, run disc defragmenter.

Click start then run, type sfc /scannow then press enter, you need the XP CD and Windows File Protection will show a blue onscreen progress bar, when the bar goes, reboot

Click start then run, type chkdsk /f /r then press enter, type Y to confirm for next boot, press enter then reboot.

Windows will appear to load normally then either the monitor will show progress or the screen will go blank, do not disturb this.

This will take an hour or so before it gets to the desktop.

Download and install Tune Up 2006 Trial

Run Tune Up Disc Clean Up

Run Tune Up Registry Clean Up

Click Optimize and Improve to run Reg Defrag, which will take a few minutes and need a reboot. You should disable the antivirus programme to run this and check it is running after the reboot

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to optimize the computer, select computer with an internet connection from the drop down menu, this also requires a reboot

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to accelerate downloads, select the speed just above your actual connection speed, this requires a reboot

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to run system advisor
