    OK the book says I connect my ADSL router to my Lynksys access point and
    this will light the "WLAN Link" LED
    well, nothing happens, even the router doesnt light up

    If I then plug the patch lead to one of the 4 Rj45 ports in the access
    point, then I get both a light on the Lynksys and on the router showing a
    network connection has been made

    But no wireless connection to a PC with a USB Lynksys adapter so I have no
    idea what I;ve not done properly

    This PC that I'm using now is connected directly to the router on one of its
    4 ports and that connects fine, the Lynksys AP is plugged right next to it

    Any ideas folks ?

    Are the two devices on the same IP range and subnet?
    I would tell you what mine are, but i have a RIPE IP block, so they would be

    Are both devices acting as a DHCP server? If they are, they may be trying to
    get an IP address of each other. Have a good look throught the options

    Doesnt Lynksys come with a setup disk, and do they not have a phone support?

    To connect one Router to another you have to use a crossover cable.
    Is your ADSL router integral with the DSL modem?
    That's the good news.
    Try the crossover.
