Hi guys, right now I'm trying to set up a wireless network with a Linksys WRT54G Router. I'm trying to set it up with the internet through my Westell Wirespeed Dualconnect DSL modem, and have run into some problems. First of all, I cannot even finish the installation with Linksys' cd, because it cannot detect my internet connection when I plug the internet in through the ethernet port because I normally use my USB 2.0 ports to connect the modem and the ethernet port to share the connection with a cat-5 cable. How would I go about changing the settings back so that it connects to the internet through ethernet? I've tried the network and internet setup wizards, but nothing seems to work. When I directly plug in the internet through my ethernet port, it says that I have limited or no connectivity, and I'm guessing this is because it is expecting a connection to another computer. My goal is to get this network securely set up, and I appreciate any help you guys can give me.
Thanks in advance,
James.

Edit: I just tried to rerun the verizon online dls setup CD, but when I got to the part to setup my modem, it told me to connect through usb. How do I change my network settings/internet settings to allow me to get internet through ethernet again?

Is your DSL PPPOE? Do you need a username and password to authenticate?
We never use the CD's. We set all of our DSL installs up manually and never have an issue.
