it was an offsite tutorial and everything u posted below is a foreign language to me not that computer savvy when it comes to this kinda stuff all im looking for is a straight forward step by step tutorial on how to use my linksys router for wifi instead of the built in one on the modem,i thought i had everything right because it was allowing me to connect to linksys but it had a limited connection notification preventing me from using the internet

The steps aviewer provided is about the best your going to get. If you don't understand what he is telling you to do, it my be best to hire someone to do it for you. You will have to have some "computer savvy" to accomplish what your trying to do.
It would be like a main bearing going out in my engine and requesting a mechanic to give me step by step instructions on how to change it. Their are so many different verabiles it's not going to happen.
With that said, maybe try linksys and see if they can walk you thru it free of charge?
I did locate this but not sure if it will assist at all:
Setting up IP Passthrough with 3rd Party Router
Connect a computer into one of the Ethernet ports on the back of the NVG510 using an Ethernet cable. Use another Ethernet cable to connect the WAN port of the 3rd party router to another of the Ethernet ports of the NVG510.
1. Open your browser and browse to 192.168.1.254
2. Under the Device section next to status click on "Device List"
3. Your IP Address/Name of your Computer and 3rd party router should show up in this list as the only two connected devices.
4. If you are not able to find out which device is which you may run the "ipconfig" command in windows by
5. Write down or copy the IP address and Mac Address from the Device list that isn't your computer and then Click on "Firewall" at the top
6. Below "Firewall" click on "IP Passthrough"
7. Under the IP Passthrough section fill in the following
8. Click "Save" at the bottom and power cycle the NVG510 and the 3rd party router.
9. Unplug computer from NVG510 and connected to your router and wait for both to come back up.
10. Once both the NVG and router are up open a browser and verify you are able to browse.

Well as a last resort you can try to send a Private Message to the ATTU-verseCare Community Specialist team. One of the specialists will respond to your PM shortly. Please look for the flashing envelope at the top right of the page for your response from a team member.
See if they can assist? I'm not sure how far they will be able to go with you until you hit the technical road block. I don't mean that in a condescending way, but just sayin....

ok after looking thru this some i almost got it just got a quick question
im on step 3 now where you change your lan ip address so does this mean i need to change the local ip address (ip address to get to my linksys router page) to 192.168.1.10 or i also have something that says a starting ip address that i can change under setup

sorry to post again but i think i did it i just wanna verify heres what i did
after doing that i can now connect to wifi on this laptop thru linksys my next question is does this mean it is set up already for my other pcs that use wifi aswell or do i need to do something else for it to work on them,and do i need to disable wireless on my modem or do i need to keep it enabled

If you connected to the wireless on the linksys then disable the wireless on the A&T router. The rest of your devices should connect wirelessly to the linksys just as you are now. Find the wireless linksys network and then enter the password and off you go!!
See it wasn't too hard......
