Disconnect wireless/direct connect to cable modem

If I have the wrong group, please point me to the correct group.

I have a Toshiba Satellite running Windows Vista. It is using a Linksys WRT54G.

I want to disconnect from the Linksys router and directly connect to my cable modem.

In other words, I do not want to go wireless.

Thank you for any assistance.

Ok, but you can still use the router, you don't need to entirely bypassit. Just plug an ethernet cable from your laptop's ethernet port into one of your router's LAN ports. If it bothers you, disable the wireless segment in the router config.

Two good product choices :)

If you only want to connect one computer at a time (or you only have one computer) then you can do that easily; just that you of course won't have the router's builtin features.

As another poster said, you can easily just disable its wireless feature and still use it as a router, in case you add more clients on later.
