Please bear with me for the rather long explaination of what and why I am doing this. I am having problems with the connection to my ISP going down randomly. When I had the "SL" connected to the modem and configured for PPPoE the Sl will not connect. If I connect a computer directly to the modem and configure the computer for PPPoE it connects. Last week a tech from my ISP came out and brought with him a Broadxent Brite Port 8120 ADSL Gateway. Which is a modem/ router that is configured to do the PPPoE negotiations. The Broadxent also has problems with random disconnects. I had configured the "SL" to work behind the Broadxent gateway by setting the "SL" to DHCP and changing the DHCP server from 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.0.1 it connects and I have access to the Internet. Now I have decided that I do not want to pay for that Broadxent gateway and I want to use the Zoom ADSL modem and my old wired router. Which is a spare PC with two ethernet cards in it and running a Linux firewall/ router application. This router works great and I have access to the Internet. The problem is that the "SL" will obtain an IP address from the wired router but I can not get a connection to the Internet with my laptop through the SL. How do I configure the WRTSL54GS to work as an access point? Relax.... I am in the process of switching ISP's because everytime that I contact them about the line going down, they blame it on the Linksys. Because the line works with a computer connected directly to the modem. Also I can get a wireless 10 megabit service for less then I am paying for their 1.5 meg/ 384k DSL line.
