ADSL with Linksys Wireless Router

Specs: Win XP Pro, Athlon XP 2600+

I have a SmartAX MT882 ADSL modem and a Linksys WRT54G Wireless Router.
Currently I can't access the internet when I connect the router so I am using the wired PC directly to the modem for now. I am using Ethernet cable for the wired pc (and the eventual connection of the modem to router) and wish to use Wireless from the router for my laptop.
The ADSL modem is set with my username/PW for the ISP in the web based config ( Which gives me an IP address of for the wired pc.
As the router is also Once I connect the router I can no longer access the modem's settings. (Router is set to auto DHCP configuration)
Can anyone help, step by step, as to how I get the modem and router to talk to each other so I can access the internet via my router.
Details for actual settings for the ADSL modem configuration before I can connect the router would be very helpful.
Many thanks.

well, first change the IP address on the WLAN router. You can't have 2 host's with same IP like that, it's an ip conflict, and will cause connectivity the ones you describe.

Hi Fist, I did it! It appers the IP conflict was causing the problem all along. I can now access router and modem from the computer.
The modem gave the router and the router configures the rest as it used to for my other computers.
Not aure about all the NAT set to DMZ, UPNP on, Firewall being on on both modem and Router and DNS relay settings in the modem but I guess i'll leave it all as it is as it seems to be working fine now.
