Default configure replacement modem with my router?

well i used to be able to go on the net and xbox live at the same time and on my ipod touch there was a connection for me to go on. but my modem went out it was a actiontec gt701-wg and i got a replacement one and it works through direct connnect but when i connect it to my router it wont let me get on the net. the power light and ethernet and internet lights are on on the router but cant connect so i called linksys and they said my warranty ran out but they said i need to configure it so im pretty dumb when it comes to this stuff so please help?

Think you'll have better luck at cnet.com or so.

You probably need to get into the router command menu and set up things in it. I have a different brand and I use telnet to get into mine.

Do a google search for your router and you might find some FAQ that will help you with the correct settings and or commands to get everything working right. Might need to buy a new router, they go bad too sometimes. I have had to replace two wireless ones and 3 wired ones over the years.

I am not an expert so don't know how to do it. Got a friend who is an expert so I bribe him with home cooked meals to fix it all.

I think this is the second time I have seen a question about a wireless router here.

Actually you can download a program called network magic from the cisco/linksys website that will configure a linksys router for you.

I think we need to rename our favorite tool so that it doesn't confuse people.
How about "rotating noisy wood cutter".
