The default IP for the WRT54G is 192.168.1.1
After connecting it to 1 PC and nothing else, and after configuring your pc's ip properties, try to ping 192.168.1.1 to see if you get a reply.

Ok, just so I am clear. I need to :
1. Disconnect the router from the PC and reconnect to internet.
2. Go to 22.214.171.124 and follow the step originally given to me for reconfiguring the router.
3. Reconnect router and reboot?
Sorry, but I am just learning this "wireless networking" stuff.

OK, disconnect the router from everything, even power. Turn your PC off. Connect your PC to the router with a network cable to one of the LAN ports, not the WAN port. Now plug the router's power back in and turn your pc on. By default, the DHCP server in the router is enabled, so if your network settings for your PC are set to Dynamic, then you should get an ip address when you boot your PC. To check to see if you get an IP address, open a command prompt and type ipconfig /all and press enter. It should display for the ethernet adapter an IP adress of most likely 192.168.1.100 and a default gateway of 192.168.1.1. If you are not getting the #'s, then you can try manualy entering them in to the adapters TCP/IP properties and try to ping 192.168.1.1
Hope I didn't confuse ya too much, let me know if you still need help on anything...

HOORAH! I am back in business. I have reconfigured my router (I think). Obviously, I can get back on the internet. Now let's see what you can really do?
When my router was originally setup, my network was setup with a secured connection. Now my original network has a red x by it. What do I need to do to get this reconnected to my originally setup secured connection? Thank you so much for what you have done with me so far.
