I'm trying to help a friend setup a wireless net connected to sbcglobal dsl. I run the software with the wrt54g v5 router and it thinks the dsl modem is PPPoE, but then fails to connect to the internet. Funny thing is I can hook up a computer directly to the dsl and it works, i get an ip address (not a 192.168.... type) and I never enter a password or user name. I know this because I just reinstalled the os on this computer (w2k). So, the dsl modem is acting like it's a dhcp server. I can even hook up another router (an airlink) to this modem and setup 2 computers which each get dhcp ip's (192.168.1.100, and .101). So, I figured maybe this modem is not using pppoe (but I admit much ignorance here) and is instead just like a cable modem providing me with a true ip address from the isp. So, I tried to hook the wan output from the linksys to one of the 4 switched ethernet connections figuring if a computer can get to the internet on 2 of these ports, why wouldn't the linksys router get one. This worked for me when I connected my own wireless to my linksys vonage non-wireless router (but the 2 routers use a different subnet). But then, I tried to manually configure my friends wireless linksys by telling it to get it's ip address dynamically. I even changed the subnet to 192.168.2.x but it still didn't work. Any ideas, I'm totally confused now.
