    I have a Comcast SMC8013WG router and a Cisco 2950 switch and running
    that order to a Linksys WRT54G router. All I need is wireless
    IPs....what do I need to change in the router to get a connection from
    the Comcast modem or Cisco switch? I can't even get a connection wired
    in.

    1. do not use the WAN jack on the WRT54G
    2. connect the WRT54G to the switch or router using one of its LAN jacks
    3. set the WRT54G LAN IP to the correct subnet used by the DHCP server
    in your SMC8013WG
    4. disable the DHCP server in the WRT54G
