Configuring my modem with a Linksys WRT54GL

Configuring my modem with a Linksys WRT54GL


I just today set up my new DSL service and while I can connect to the internet just fine via LAN, I can't seem to get my wireless to work.  I can connect with the computer connected directly to the modem and directly to the Linksys router but if I try to use the wireless it doesn't work.  Any advice?  I've tried many "fix's" that I've read on the net including attempting to put the modem in bridge mode (which resulted in NO internet access) and also changing the router's IP to instead of


I'm not sure of the modem's model number, it says "Westell, ADSL2+ Router, Style MSTATEA" on the bottom...

Hello bigbubbagumper6,

I apologize for the inconvenience that you had faced while trying to connect wirelesly using your Motorola modem and the Linksys router. Please do not place the modem in bridge mode as that has got nothing to do with enabling wireless connectivity for your router.
I suggest you to please contact AT&T ConnecTech Support at 877-831-2880 between Monday to Sunday 9am to 12am ET or the Linksys Support at 800-326-7114. They will make some changes on the router settings thereby enabling wireless capabilities of the router and help you accordingly.

Well I just found out that it's only the laptop that's running Win 7 that can't connect. My other laptop which runs XP and my PS3 both connected wireless just fine...

Tech support is not going to help you set up a third party router. I've tried. Fellow I talked to didn't give a crap whether I had wireless internet or not. Can't you explain to us here what needs to be done?
