Question for anyone with a Linksys G router

can you tell me under which setting tab (1 through 7) and subcategory i can use to change the language? i just installed a new WRT54GS unit and the setup screens are all in GERMAN! not sure if i got a return or what...but it makes it really hard to navigate when my options are Anwendungen
& Spiele or Zugriffs-beschränkungen. while i like a challenge i'd prefer to have the router menus in English. thanks!

tab 6, then sub tab 4 will let you change to a factory fefault setting.

I can't seem to find language settings in there

Hey...since this thread was answered I figured it would be ok to build off of it with another question. I have a linksys WRT54G that is connected to a Netgear FVS318 firewall. I have 2 pcs connected to the netgear and one connected via wireless to the linksys. How do i get them to talk to each other? They seem to be on seperate networks which makes sense, but I'd like to share printers, etc across them. Thanks

make sure the workgroup is the same on the 3 computers. your netgear is a firewall/switch, so the computer should be on the same network.

probably would be easier to manually set the IPs on both the computers as well.
