I have comcast internet and have happily used my wrt54g in this way for a while. The modem connects to the router, my 2 computers connect to the router via internet cable and my laptops downstairs connect wirelessly. Recently comcast sent us a new faster modem. when I use it directly connected to the computer as I am now it works perfectly with faster speeds, but when I connect it to the router and then to the computers i get no internet access. After trying the WRT54G setup disk I got to the part that says checking computer settings. It goes to 99% then tells me that it cannot connect to the router and to try reseting it to factory settings by holding reset for 5 seconds. I have done this and it makes no difference
Can anyone help me?

Press and hold the reset button in back for 30 seconds and release. Wait 10 seconds and power cycle the router. Connect via wired computer to 192.168.1.1 username blank, password 'admin'. Configure the router manually.

thank you for that response, I did that and the router instantly started working on one computer, this windows one, but the mac one will still not connect. I can access the router setup page on this computer if that is helpful. The light for port 2 which is the mac is flashing while the one for this computer is solid. What should I change?
