    Never thought this would be so tough!!!

    anyways here is my problem simply!

    I have MTNL broad band at home and now i want to set up wireless internet access , for which i bought a Wireless router of Linksys WRT54G . I followed everything correctly as per the Wizard CD rom , but it doesnt give me internet access through the wireless router.

    I am sure there are some settings which need to be made at my wireless router end which will ensure that the internet will work ...

    Anyone help would be appreciated....please please please !!!

    My adsl modem is working fine when i connect it directly to my pc but when i connect the adsl model to my netgear wrt54g the internet doesnt work.

    He is what i have done.

    1. automatic config - dhcp (other options being static ip...etc)
    2. changed the starting IP to as the mtnl adsl modem is
    3. dhcp server enable

    still internet doesnt work. what do i need to change?

    Please try the following:

    a) Completely reset the Netgear Wireless Router
    b) Configure Netgear router with Automatic DHCP
    c) Do not bother changing the router's IP address as yet
    d) Check the status page to see whether you are connected. You should get an IP address for the router such as or something similar
    e) Check whether you are able to surf

    If your able to surf, then go ahead and change the wireless router's IP address.

    Thanks alot Just4kix

    This helped me alot , the second option clearly made me understand ... however i changed my ip of the router , is that fine ? cause logically my ADSL and my WIFI router both were on the same IP ( changing the IP address helped immediately...

    Another article which is very helpful is , you must check it out.

    Socrates’s experience: How to configure Linksys WRT54G wireless router

    I just dont understand , MTNL or WIFI routers dont have detailed steps to explain such settings stuff , judging by the fact that so many people ask the same questions it must be a unversal problem.

    Anyways thanks ....

    You are welcome, smitzonian. Glad to help out.

    You can change the router's address to anything you like. Just remember it - make a note of your settings in a diary/notebook or something. I do. Here is what I listed in my notebook:

    UT-300R2U Settings

    ...IP Address:
    ...Router Administrator Password=

    WAN Settings:
    ...ATM Interface: PVC-0
    ...VPI: 0
    ...VCI: 35
    ...Virtual Circuit: Enabled
    ...WAN Settings: PPPoE/PPPoA
    ...Connection Type: PPPoE LLC
    ...MRU: 1492
    ...Authentication: PAP
    ...Obtain DNS Automatically: Enabled
    ...Default Route: Enabled
    ...NAT: Enabled
    ...IGMP: Disabled

    WRT54G Settings

    ...Configuration Mode: Automatic DHCP Enabled
    ...IP Address:
    ...Router Administrator Password=

    Wireless Settings
    ...Wireless Name (SSID)=
    ...Wireless Security=on
    ...Security Mode=WPA
    ...WPA Algorithm=TKIP
    ...Encryption Key=
    ...Wireless Channel=6

    Try using a cross cable from you ADSL Router (MTNL) to the Uplink Port WRT54G (Check for the port where you have "internet" mentioned. In case this doesnot work, try plugging a straight cable (which comes alongwith the MTNL Router) from your MTNL Router to one of the 4 ports available on WRT54G

    Thanks for the article

    Hi, First of all I would like to thank you for this informative article. I could not follow the steps for Option 1 since my A-DSL router has been installed for 2 years and I lost the CD and USB cable, when I connect my computer to the ADSL router my internet connection works perfectly, I have verified that my Ethernet connection is configured to Automatic DHCP. When I connect the Enternet cable from ADSL router to Internet port of my Linksys WRT160N and Connect the 1 LAN port of router to the LAN port of my computer, I am able to configure my router to use Automatic DHCP for internet connection and to use DHCP for any computer connected to that router, I cannot access the internet.
