I just bought a Linksys wrt54g2 last night and installed it today, with a Bayan DSL connection. I have two questions though:
1) the instructions stipulate connecting the a computer and the router using an ethernet line (the blue wire). During set up, I used my macbook to configure the linksys, then I disconnected the ethernet line from the router's port. I almost expected it not to work, but to my surprise, it did. During this time, I also used my sister's HP laptop to connect and it worked fine. But after disconnecting the ethernet line from the router's port, only my macbook was able to connect.
So I connected the HP to the router using the ethernet line. And it worked. My question is, can I do something so I can disconnect the HP from the router and still make it work? After all, I bought the router so we can be wireless.
2) I've read about "flashing" the router so it can give you better results. Can anyone offer help as to how I can do this? My unit's firmware version is 1.0.01. I've searched the net but all of the instructions are laden with jargon a newbie like me wouldn't understand.
Sorry for these questions. I really hope you can help me out. TIA!
