Hi all, first time posting here after reading many many posts that seem to describe the problem I have. However, no matter what I've done, I still cannot connect to the internet through the linkysys wireless router (which I want as there are 3 PC's sharing the connection). Internet connection works fine if PC is connected directly (wire) to the modem. Router - WRT54G - latest firmware installed Modem - Aztech 600E - which has router capabilities and and IP address. Things I've done: Switch the linksys router IP address to 192.168.0.1 while the modem remains at 192.168.1.1. (Netmask is 255.255.255.0 on both units) Powercycled/resetted everything so many times. Set the modem to bridge mode - though I'm not too sure if I've done this correctly because: 1.) the modem cannot be accessed at 192.168.1.1 a few minutes after i change it to bridge mode. 2.) the linksys router still refuses to connect to the internet through the modem and returns the same message all along "cannot find IP address of PPPoE server". IT will try to connect 4 times before giving that message. one more thing to note, though i don't know how important it is. my linksys router FAILS to show the current time. even after the firmware upgrade that went smoothly. In bridge mode I also turned off DHCP in the modem while DHCP is on in the router. My question - where does the username/password for my internet connection go to? In the linksys router or in the modem? Could someone please explain to me what bridging does in simple terms. And could someone please assist me to fix this problem. I really need to get online for work purposes as do the other people at home. Thanks in advance.
