Please help ASAP!! Ok, here's the problem im having. I was on my laptop a few days ago, and our power cut out because a circuit tripped. So my dad flipped the breaker, and i went to try to get back on the internet. No go. I have no internet on my desktop, or laptops. I called comcast, they gave me a bunch of crap, and told me to hook my desktop directly into my modem, and try that way. Well that works, but it only gets me internet on my desktop. For some reason, once i plug my wireless router in, and hook it up, suddenly i get no internet. I get this message when i try:

Address Not Found

Firefox can't find the server at www.google.com.

The browser could not find the host server for the provided address.

* Did you make a mistake when typing the domain? (e.g. "ww.mozilla.org" instead of "www.mozilla.org")
* Are you certain this domain address exists? Its registration may have expired.
* Are you unable to browse other sites? Check your network connection and DNS server settings.
* Is your computer or network protected by a firewall or proxy? Incorrect settings can interfere with Web browsing.


I can still access the network, share files, folders, all that, but no internet. I gave it to a friend to look at, and he said he hooked it up, and it worked ok. I'm guessing there must be a setting somewhere, but NOTHING changed that i know of. It just suddenly doesn't work. I tried the repair function, nothing, tried turning modem and router on and off, nothing, tried EVERYTHING. Is there something else i should try? Should i buy a new router? Router brand is Linksys, and model is WRT54G V.3 Thanks for any help you can provide.

Ok, i plugged everything in, and this is what i got. I really need an answer by friday, or im going to buy a new one. It's a pretty old router as routers go anyway, but if i don't have to spend the $40, that's good, but it's really ticking me off. Thanks! If you need any more info, let me know, and i will happily supply it.
