make sure you have an ethernet cable going from the modem to the router, from the router to the pc ( unless you are using wireless cap ). Make sure you have your phone line running to modem without a filter on it. There should be a reset button on the back of the router, hold it down for 15 seconds and then try to set it up again.

have you gone into 192.168.1.1 and setup your router ? Comcast you would like a whole lot more.

Disable the wep until you have a dsl connection then apply security settings. Why do you have wep enabled if it is wired ? Just disable the ssid broadcast and I wouldnt worry about Security.

also if you reset the router and didnt go back into it and setup PPPoE then the modem and the router are probably fighting for the connection.

In the linksys config, does it show your WAN IP address from the DSL provider? What are all the lights on the modem and router looking like? They show physical link?

Outside of MAC filtering, encryption, DHCP settings, etc.. these routers pretty much plug in and start working. You have your client boxes to automatically get IP/DNS/gateway right?

I've had so many problems with Linksys. Instead I've just wired my house with a central connection. Had my friend set up a remote link to the entire house.

In the beginning I did too, though wire was impractical for my home theatre. A netgear router and netgear wireless USB adapter have been working VERY good for me, though it seams like my router likes to power cycle itself some times latley.

Anyway, a wireless solution can work reliably, though I would advise keeping it simple, and using same brand equipment when possible. The portion of my LAN in the office is all wired, but my box downstairs on the bigscreen is just too far away; wireless works beautifuly for it.

That is kind of how it is for me too. I was able to use the wireless G adapter after I created the "hot spot" for the entire house so I could go anywhere with my laptop.

Do you have DHCP setup on the Linksys to give your computer an IP? If not hard code your PC with 192.168.1.100 mask 255.255.255.0 gateway 192.168.1.1 dns 192.168.1.1.

Have you powered off the DSL modem and Linksys, then turn on the DSL and then the Linksys(also shutdown your computer and turn it back on once the modem and router are finnaly up)? Your DSL modem could be holding your MAC address from your PC and not letting any new MAC addresses (your new DSL router), powering them both off should reset it.
