Reset my Linksys Router to Default Settings now won't work!

I made the mistake of going into the Linksys Admin Settings, didn't touch ANYTHING except restored everything to factory default settings since my roomate was complaining of slow connection. Ever since I've done this the internet will not work whatsoever unless I connect the cable modem directly to the computer and the roomate can not use the net (which I'm doing now). Linksys tech support isn't too helpful so I was hoping someone could help me...

I have tried disconnecting and connecting, going to cmd prompt and releasing and renewing IP...what else can I try??? If anyone can help me fix this i'd be greatful!

Also I can not access the admin settings page at all b/c it will not let me if i'm connected directly to the model (not using router) and when going through the router NOTHING works...I have tried running Linksys's netcheck and it does not find any errors either. The model is WRT54GS

Enter the router's menus and check:

1: Is user name and password correctly entered.

2: if DHCP option is enabled. If it's not, enable it.

3: Go to control panel > network connections > double click the connection > properties > mark tcp/ip > properties. Check obtain IP (and DNS) automaticallt . Confirm and close previous windows. Check if you get connection.
