      Replacing Sagem sky router with a linksys wrt54gs (with DD-wrt)

      I'm having a bit of trouble getting internet access on my wrt router. I've followed the various FAQs and had a search around the forum, but haven't been able to find any specific answers.

      I've found my user name and password, by using the online tool, and have entered them here

      But am unsure how which other settings to alter, and where they can be found in the dd-wrt menu (eg, VPI, VCI etc...).

      Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks guys!

      isitme you've missed something key here!
      The WRT54GS is not an ADSL Router, it's a cable one which means you need an ethernet ADSL modem to connect it to sky.

      I guess I did, I don't research every router that is mentioned so took the OP at his word that it was capable of replacing the Sagem. As you say it is not and needs to be piggy backed on to the Sagem, by connecting ethernet ports.
