Problem with router setup.

I'm trying to setup my Linksy Wireless Router (model no: WRT54G v4). Right now I have Adelphia Powerlink cable service.

When I first tried to set it up I connected all the wires properly. When I got towards the end of the setup it asks for you to press the one touch setup button to detect your network settings and what not. Everytime you press it, it flashes momentarily then starts flashing all over again. I then entered all the settings manually and it moves on to the next step where it tries to connect to the internet and it just freezes the whole installation program.

I gave up with it at the time. I tried again recently and now I can't even get that far. The internet works fine but just doesn't seem to want to work with the router. When it tries to connect to the internet for the first time I get the message attached below.

I tried resetting the router and the modem. No luck. I even tried hooking up an older router. (WRT54G v3.) and get the same error. I have hooked up this same router before and it worked fine.

I'm at loss what to do now. I'm postive everything is connected right. It's becoming slightly frustrating though.

Any thoughts? Any help would be greatly appreciated. :tazz:

Hi and welcome to Geeks to Go. I would restore the router to factory default settings (see the documentation from Linksys for how to do that) and then start over.
