My friend has a WRT54G she's trying to connect a desktop (Win XP) a wireless laptop (windows 7) and 2 game units. She has cable internet via Time Warner so she uses their modem.
I dont know if its possible to do this with the WRT54G, but can she connect the cable modem to the Linksys router to the wireless laptop, ethernet desktop & 2 wireless game units?
We've tried going line by line via the Columbia University site 3x with no luck.

Which part isn't working?
Don't worry about the MAC address filtering part, and use WPA2 encryption, instead of WEP. WEP is no longer secure..
Can you get the desktop connected to the router via an ethernet cable, and get on the internet?
You'll need to give us more syptoms before we can try to tell you what is wrong.

Connect the Modem to the Router on the Internet Port and the Computer to the Router on Ethernet Port...Now,Open the set up page of the router by launching an Internet Explorer Browser and type the address bar, 192.168.1.1 and press enter. When it prompts for the username and password, leave the username field empty and provide password as admin and click on ok.
On the main setup page the ""Internet Connection Type"" should be on ""Obtain IP Automatically - DHCP “. Click on the Save Settings button.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 not ... power cycle for 4-5 minutes & then again check the WAN Ip address .....
