    I may be mistaken, but isn't the wrt54g a router? If so, that shouldn't be where your problem is, it will be with your wireless device. Can you tell us what it is? Version and model are important. If it's a pci device open a terminal and do:
    Code:
    lspci
    And press enter. Find the line about your wireless device, write it down and post it here.

    This ought to get you going. Take your time, have patience, don't rush and you'll get connected if you follow this "how to." You'll need to run a wired connection from your router to your laptop's Ethernet slot and of course, configure for wired connection before you start.
