I have a modem through verizon which is connected to a Linksys wireless wrt54-G router. The wireless works great, but I recently got a desktop PC as well, and i tried to plug the ethernet into one of the available ethernet ports on the back of the wireless router, and no matter which of the four ports I use, it says connected, but i cannot get online. It works when i plug it directly into the modem, but the idea is to have both local and wireless. haha. can anyone help??

Check TCP/IP Properties.

Start, Connect To, Connection, Properties, Scroll Down TCP/IP and highlight, click Properties and check that Obtain DNS and IP address automatically are enabled.
