Connecting a wrt54g to a 2wire 2701HG-B gateway

I have been running a WRT54G to my DSL modem for some time without problems. Recently My DSL service has required the use of the 2WIRE Gateway.
My computer works fine but my workstation does not communicate through it. I would like to know how to set up my router so that I can use it communicate through the 2wire gateway. I have already tried to set the router up for DCHP but was not able to get it to function. I don't know that much on networks or routers only enough to get my self in trouble occasionally. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Connecting a wrt54g to a 2wire 2701HG-B gateway

Configuration for DSL connection:-
Before doing the following steps, you have to connect the modem to the
router's Internet Port and the computer to the Ethernet Port Number 1.
1. Press and hold the reset button for 30 seconds.
2. Then, unplug the power keep holding down the reset button for
another 30 Seconds.
3. Plug back the power back in, and keep holding down the reset button
for 30 Seconds.
4. Release the reset button.
 Access the setup page of the router by launching an
Browser and type on the address bar, and press enter. When
it prompts for the username and password, leave the username field
empty and provide password as "admin" (Without quotes)
click on ok.
On the main setup page the ""Internet Connection Type"" should be
on ""Obtain IP Automatically - DHCP “. Click on the Save Settings
Now click on the sub tab ""MAC address clone"".
- Click on enable
Click Clone & click save settings
Check WAN Ip on Status page of router ....
If getting Valid Ip .... try going online
If you are getting Ip - 192.168.1.X ...change the LAN Ip to ....Power cycle for 3-4 minutes ...
Try going online
If still not working ...use Internet Connection type as PPPOE .... Use Username & Password provided by Service Provider ....
Click save settings....
Look for WAN IP address again under status page .... if its public you will be able to go Online!!!
