Palm Tungsten C can't connect via Linksys' most popular Wi-Fi plus 4 plug LAN router (BEFW11S4) and via Verizon DSL but used to...

1) This Linksys router connects new XP PC and old Win 98 PC by LAN flawlessly via Verizon DSL.
2) Linksys router previously connected this Palm and an old Win 98 Sony laptop via Wi-Fi flawlessly too. Palm has built-in Wi-Fi; Sony had a Linksys Wi-Fi PCMCIA card. Sony laptop since died for other reasons, needs to go to factory, and then the Palm I frankly "blew up" and completely reinstalled from factory CD after misapplying some add-in 3rd party Palm software...gave it a rest.
3) Now 3 months later after a busy travel summer, new, "clean install", working Palm still can't work to get email and web via Wi-Fi...
4) Palm tech support can't find something in their Palm and O/S I'm doing wrong, thinks external problem: a firewall or Linksys or Verizon DSL setting?
5) Now I'm starting with Linksys tech support, they are initially advocating static IP and static DNS instead of automatic IP and automatic DNS, but that alone doesn't seem to work tonight.
6) Linksys dealing with this because Palm works fine otherwise and Verizon DSL works fine for the two PCs LAN-connected through the same Linksys router...
7) Why can't I connect my Palm for email and web use now? Like I said, it worked fine out of the box in June 2003 with all the default settings, fantastically well on this same system combination.
8) I'm in Redondo Beach, CA (Los Angeles) if that makes a difference. I've been thinking of calling Verizon DSL tech support too but frankly don't know where to start with them except describe the same problem...out of my league and clueless.
