Hi, I've recently been having an issue with my router connection to my Uverse device.
I have a Linksys WRT54G router that i've connected to my Uverse device. I've never had a problem with it till 2 days ago. I had to reset my router. But now my router wont connect to the internet.
I get internet from my Uverse device, but when i connect my router to my uverse device it doesn't send the internet signal to the router i guess?
I've been trying everything to get it to work. I tried resetting the router.
I tried the whole unplug and wait thing...
I tried changing the routers settings, but i just can't get it to connect to the internet...
if anyone can help me out it would be very much appreciated...

I would check the power supply on the Linksys while they are great for the money and can run Tomatoe they seem to have a power supply issue.

Is this set-up in DMZ or Bridged ?
Static IP or DHCP ?

Oz is on to a very likely issue. What catches my attention is that it was working (which indicates you had some settings in place to make it work), then it stopped working after the router was reset (thus removing those settings). In this case gateway (uverse device) is providing DHCP services to your devices. After resetting the router, it is going to try to provide DHCP service as well, but truly only one device should be doing this. You will want to go into your router interface and turn DHCP off. If you are unfamiliar with how to do so, post up here, myself or someone else I'm sure will be happy to take you through it.
