    Hi,

    I recently bough a belkin router (Share N300) but it just wont connect to the internet.

    My setup is as follows:
    ADSL -> Modem -> Router -> PC

    The internet works fine when I connect it directly to my PC (via the modem), and other PCs too.
    So no issue of MAC address lockdown.

    I've tried connecting through static mode with the data from ipconfig /all, but it still doesn't work.

    I've even installed DD WRT and Tomato to no avail.

    I've rebooted/reset everything, but theres still no connection.

    Please help.
    Thanks

    If the modem is a modem only did you power cycle it when trying to connect the router and configure the router's WAN properly?

    If the modem is really a modem/router combo is it and the Belkin using the same LAN IP subnet?

    Detailed Setup:

    University Dorm Room.
    I have to split the internet through what I think is a network switch. All the output ports from the switch have different IPs.
    Internet Subnet is 255.255.254.0
    Router Subnet is 255.255.255.0

    Could this be causing the problem?
