I am setting up a Linksys WRT54G2.  I can't see how to put in the ISP IP address.  I see the address on the "Status" tab but I don't see how to change it.  Any thoughts?  Thanks.

I just looked up the manual at their website.
You should be able to set it in the Basic Setup screen, but only if you select "Static IP" instead of "DHCP".  Do you have a static IP address?

CompProbSolv is correct you can setup the IP information for your ISP under the Basic Settings Tab.  Is the Linksys the primary router on this network?  Or are you trying to use the router as a Wireless access point on an existing network?

Reset the router to defaults. It should be set to automatically get a dhcp address from your ISP. I it doesn't work, change the selection to static and put the ip gateway and DNS you ISP gave you.

If the ISP supplied gateway info, doesn't that imply that Static IP should be used and not DHCP?
