Ok so right now im using a dell desktop computer with some kind of cable internet, which work totally fine when the modem is connected to the pc directly. But when i tried to hook up my Linksys WRT54G v2.2 router up to the modem, and the pc to router, it wont connet.
Now i checked in the network connections page and there is a connection titled "Internet Connection" under Gateway. and then the original connection under the original spot (LAN) so the original connection says its connected, but the Gateway connection says disabled so. So when i enable it, it says connecting, connected, then disappears then comes back a few seconds later saying disabled again. Iv tried enabling it several times but just does the same thing. So i need to figure out how to get the computer to connect the internet through the router.

PLEASE HELP
