BIG trouble - Change from PPPoE to DHCP

Hi guys.


My ISP has changed our internet access from the PPPoE protocol to the DHCP protocol.

I'm using a Linksys WRT54GC wireless router.

If i change the setting from PPPoE to Automatic Configuration - DHCP inside the basic setup of the router and save it, then i have no internet connection.

What else needs to be changed? I have set up Windows 7 to automatic get an IP address and DNS address.

Can anyone help me set up the router so that i can gain access to the internet again???


Thanks in advance

Log on to your modem and input the username & password you used for PPPoE.  You may have to change your settings from bridge mode to normal mode.
