Can't run anything through wrt54g router

Linksys Wrt54g wireless router
November 29, 2010 at 01:19:45
Specs: Windows 7
So here is my setup. I have a Speedstream 5100 modem, att dsl, linksys wrt54g v3(with v4.21.1 firmware) my xbox 360 wired into the wireless router and a laptop which is new but i didnt have problems until now. Also uses windows 7. Though the comp is new I've been using my friends laptops on the wireless network and also playing my xbox for months.

Currently I am hardlined into the modem because the router isn't working. My xbox or wireless isn't working. The only way is straight to modem. I've been looking at different forums and what not on how to fix it. So far i've tried reseting both router and modem, first by unplugging then by going to ip and restarting manually. Any help is appriciated, thank you. This is what my ipconfig pretty much comes out as....

Sounds like your router is bricked.

First step is set it back to factory defaults. You do this by a straighten paperclip in the reset hole as you power up the unit. Sometimes it takes a few times.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.

To do a factory reset on some routers you have to press, and hold, the reset button for 10 seconds and then release it, allow the unit to reboot.

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
