I see two statements and no question. Might try describing your setup and situation.

Sorry. My Linksys WRT54G and the AT&T Motorola modem (model 2210) won't work together. If they are connected together there is no connection. I have to connected directly. If I could get into the router's settings I may can fix this problem. Thank you.

Sorry. My Linksys WRT54G won't work with my AT&T modem (model 2210). I have to connect on my lan connection. I really need to get into the router's config. Thanks.

Has this setup ever worked for you or is this a new router that you are trying to insert into your network?

When setting up a router you should firstly turn off all power to the modem, router and shut down the PC,

Next connect with a lan cable from modem to router WAN port
Then from router LAN port to PC.

Next turn on power to Modem. Wait for it to fully start up.
Then turn on power to Router. Wait for it to fully start up.
Next turn on the PC.

Go to Start>Run
In the Run box type cmd press enter
This will open a commandline interface
Then type ipconfig \all and pres enter.

Copy the results and post back here.

If this is a new router the the manual that came with it will describe how to log into it's admin interface including the default admin user ID and password as well as the default IP address.
If this is a previously used router and you do not know the admin user ID and password then you will need to reset the router to factory default by depressing the reset button and then go through the power down/power up process described earlier.

I did exactly as you said. The modem and router just aren't communicating. IP 192.168.1.100, Subnet 255.255.255.0, Default gateway 192.168.1.1, DHCP 192.168.1.1, Dns server 192.168.1.1. This the same router we have always used.

OK so we've established that the router is functioning at least on the LAN side.
Now you need to log into the router admin interface.
Did you open a web browser and enter 192.168.1.1 in the address bar. You should be prompted with a login screen asking for the router's admin user ID and password.
Once you get into the Admin interface you need to check the WAN settings. You say this is the same router you've always used. Does this mean the Modem and ISP are new/different from what you used previously?

You may need to adjust the router to conform with specific requirements of the modem & ISP. The modem documentation or perhaps Tech support at the ISP should help
