Okay let me first state that networking is not even good enough to be a weak area!! Just being honest/objective: So I went over to assist a friend in setting up her wireless printer (I've done many, so figured no problem). I kept getting that the SSID was null??? Evnetually I got an error suggesting that McAfee needed to be configured to allow the printer to find wireless network.. Long, frustrating story to short, now her wireless network no longer works either. She did not have disc for setup of wireless router (Linksys WRT54G2 ver. 1.0). She had to go to work and I told her I would investigate at home and download the setup software and comeback tomorrow. Along the way I ended up reading this article concerning here DSL/modem: http://www22.verizon.com/Support/Residential/internet/highspeed/networking/setup/questionsthree/123756.htm#
My question is I have reset her router (Linksys) and for some reason I can't even get into it with 192.168.1.1 to change any settings, but do I have to follow the instructions in the above article to get this router to work with her Westell 6100g DSL/modem?? or will the setup software from Linksys do that for me??? Verizon was of no assistance due to the fact that it is not their wireless router. Of course any guidance/suggestions are very much welcome and appreciated!!!

Remember you will need to release and renew the address on the computer you are trying to access the router on since you reset it. Start-run- cmd- ipconfig /release - ipconfig /renew. Then access the router.
Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please.

I had tried that, I ended up downloading the setup program, and even though it said it did not complete successfully it worked, and we got everything working again. But Thanks for your assistance.
