    Q. I am not able to get to the web configuration screen for the router, what can I do?
    A: You may have to remove proxy settings on your Internet browser, e.g., Netscape or Internet Explorer. Or, remove the dial-up settings on your browser.

    That is the answer found on Linksys website for my problem. But how I can do that?
    If I disable gateway connection I am able to access web configuration screen for the router but I don't have connection to the Internet.
    With gateway connection enabled everything is fine BUT I can't access web configuration screen for the router and I can't get update for Windows XP from Microsoft. I get that screen with "scan for update", I "click" on it and that counter for "available updates for your computer" remain at 0%.

    You should not be using proxy at all. I think there is a malconfiguration in the router.

    you shouldn't need any proxy settings behind a router..
