Try: http://192.168.1.1 instead. Do not try to use wireless to configure your unspecified router. Connect with a CAT5 cable. Verify that you have a connection with: Start -> Run -> cmd ipconfig The IP address should be something like 192.168.1.100. The Gateway address should be 192.168.1.1 If the IP address is 169.254.xxx.xxx, something is broken or miswired.
What ISP? Do they use DHCP, PPPoE, PPPoA, or whatever?

WAG354G? (It's important to be accurate.)
Are you trying to make a wireless connection or a wired connection? To get configured, it may be easier to do it with a wired (Ethernet) connection. Configure your Ethernet port manually to 192.168.1.100 with a subnet mask of 255.255.0.0 After configuring your router, restore the Ethernet port to automatic (DHCP) operation.
If you need more help, please do the following: Open a CMD window (Start -> Run, type "CMD" and press [Enter]). Type "IPCONFIG /ALL" and press [Enter]. Copy all the output and post it here.
I am not sure how to configue the ethernet settings. I've done the IPCONFIG/ALL but how would this help you? As I'm currently connected to the internet via the modem supplied by tiscali. The IP settings would be different. I'd be will to send those details to your email address, but not on the news group.
Start by connecting to your WAG354G with a wired ethernet connection. Do not try it with wireless at this time. Also no broadband connection is required. Just your computer and the WAG354G. Connect to: http://192.168.1.1 If it doesn't work, kindly disclose the results of: ipconfig (See my previous message).
AFAIK, likewise Google and Linksys, there is no such thing as WGA354G. Is this actually the label on the product?
Configure manual IP address:
IPCONFIG /ALL would tell me what you're got and how it's now configured. I want you to run it when connected by wire to your Linksys product (whatever it is), not your Tiscali modem, for which there is no real privacy or security issue.

Thanks for the info. (In the future, you should use plain text (in your message itself, or a text document created with Notepad) -- encoded attachments are stripped by many news services.)
What you sent appears to be your Tiscali configuration, not your configuration when attached to your Linksys router.
If you did indeed run IPCONFIG /ALL, it seems that you don't have a wired Ethernet adapter, which makes configuration more difficult, since you'll have to deal with wireless issues as well as manual port configuration. I recommend getting a wired Ethernet adapter, even just a cheap USB to Ethernet adapter, to make configuring your router as easy as possible without having to mess with your wireless configuration, which risks wiping out your working direct modem connection. In addition, updating firmware, which is highly recommended in general, should only be done over a wired (not a wireless) connection.
If you do choose to use your wireless adapter to configure your router, then I strongly recommend you first download and install Mobile Net Switch or NetSwitcher , both fully functional even without registration, which should allow you to save your current Tiscali configuration, create a new configuration to talk to your router, and rapidly switch back and forth between them.

It shouldn't be terribly difficult. If you connect a wired adapter to your router, configuration is usually automatic. Wireless usually works the same way. Sorry if I made it sound harder than it usually is.
