I have my TG585 v7 in bridged mode ie all it's doing is providing the internet connection (via WAN port on my main router which is a WRT54GS v6).
My main router is setup as follows ~
Connection Type = 'Automatic Configuration - DHCP'
Gateway & Local DNS = blank (as the TG585 is in bridged mode it can't be pinged etc hence no point setting a Gateway or DNS)
Operating Mode = Gateway
DHCP with Static DHCP leases for all connected devices
It's been a little while since i last navigated the menus in the TG585 as mine's in bridged mode as i say, though i can't think of anything in the TG585 in non-bridged mode that would be stopping you get out to the internet. It sounds like a setting on the Linksys.
From your post i can see that DHCP is working fine on the Linksys, from memory the TG585 has a default IP of 192.168.1.254 in non-bridged mode so have you tried setting 192.168.1.254 as the Gateway on the Linksys ?, plus you could blank out the Local DNS too. _________________ 2 node (v23 sp2) WDS network over WPA2/AES comprising 2x Buffalo WHR-G54S's.

thanks for your reply.
I'm confused about your answer:
It seems as my provider Telekom Austria have a different Firmware (126.96.36.199), the IP address is 10.0.0.138 and there is no word about bridged/non-bridged mode (what's this?).
... I can confirm, that your settings work also for me. Unfortunately with this settings the router works only as Gateway in the same IP-range - e.g. I cannot use the "Website Blocking by Keyword" feature as parental control...
Is there a way to use the WRT54GL as router in this constellation?
I'm afraid i have no idea of differences between the UK and Austria with regards to broadband etc., i'm on what i know as 'standard ADSL', please forgive my ignorance
I guess the best way i can describe bridged/unbridged is that in bridged mode you can't access the unit ie it just provides the internet connection, and in non-bridged mode you can access & configure it's DHCP settings etc etc.
As to the gateway/router mode i cheated and copy/pasted from elsewhere ~
Gateway Mode should be used if your Linksys router is hosting your network's connection to the Internet.
Router Mode should be selected if the router exists on a network with other routers.
So the Linksys itself can get out to the internet when hooked up to the TG585 v7 ??.
Maybe it's a DNS setting on the Linksys - see if you can ping google.com from one of the PC's but use one of it's IP addresses, you can get these by a 'nslookup google.com'.
And check the DNS/Default Gateway settings on the PC.. _________________ 2 node (v23 sp2) WDS network over WPA2/AES comprising 2x Buffalo WHR-G54S's.
You got me on the remaining issue(s). DNSMasq stuff on the routers is always confusing to me i'm afraid, i think it'll need someone else to help you with the rest, my settings for the following are dictated by me configuring the router for "Multiple (B)SSIDs".
DNSMasq for DHCP / DNSMasq for DNS / DHCP-Authoritative are all ticked on mine and i have set options in the Additional DNSMasq Options box, all required by the BSSID config from here ~ http://www.dd-wrt.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=39240&highlight= _________________ 2 node (v23 sp2) WDS network over WPA2/AES comprising 2x Buffalo WHR-G54S's.
