I just moved into an apartment building that offers free internet. I can use an ethernet cable and attach it to my laptop and use the internet fine.
I recently bought a Linksys WRT54G2 router to connect wirelessly. The tech support guy gave me the apt's IP address, submask, gateway, Prim and sec DNS numbers.
I've connected the modem to the jack on the wall and connected my computer and router (slot 1) with another ethernet cord. My computer recognizes there's an internet connection (says local area connection is connected). But I can't browse the internet. How do I configure my computer and/or router so I can access internet and then secure my router and connect wirelessly?
Thanks so much. If I can figure this out, I can save $45 for the tech guy to come help me.
