So earlier today i sat on the phone for about an hour and a half with someone from india about my verizon dsl not working. So they got it working connected directly to my laptop. So i figured since i had no problems in the past with my router or pc i could just plug it in to my desktop through my router.

Sigh.

In a nutshell im using a linksys wrt54gs and using Linksys Easy Link Advisor. And a westell 6100F.

The easy link advisor says i have full connection to the router and the web but when i try to pull up a page or ping a website i get no repsonse at all.

Any suggestions? I really dont want to back on the phone with the indian lady again.

Edit i noticed someone had a similar thread started earlier and i just dont want to hijack the thread.

You need to go into the Linksys web based setup and change the base address of the Linksys router to 192.168.2.1 from the default 192.168.1.1, which is also the base address of the 6100F router. Make sure you also check the DHCP server's address range and change it to 192.168.2.x if it doesn't automatically follow the base address.

=] Thanks for the response, I had already changed the address to 192.168.2.1 and now im not sure how to do the second part you asked.

Make sure you also check the DHCP server's address range and change it to 192.168.2.x if it doesn't automatically follow the base address.
Where should i go to check that.

Edit: I think i found it. Right below the local ip address is the "Starting IP Address" Its set to 192.168.2.100

That should do the trick. Now just power cycle everything and see if you can connect.

Thank you so much! =] Even though the only step i didnt do was the power cycle, its such a small step that it would have been day before i figured that out.

PS: Posting from my desktop =]
