problem communicating between WRTP54G and Compaq Netelligent

    My NIC (Compaq Netelligent 10/100TX PCI UTP Controller network adapter) on my desktop doesn't communicate properly with my new Linksys/Vonage WRTP54G router (firmware It is with difficulty (disable then enable Network connection, cmd ipconfig /release, wait 30 seconds for error...) that I get a proper IP address ( but I can't ping the router or the outside world consistently (usually unreachable or timeout, sometimes a packet received after 100's of milliseconds).

    Using another computer (laptop) I got the router configured to work, so my laptop gets to the internet, and my phone gets a dial tone on the phone port, and I can call it. So the router generally works.

    My desktop NIC worked with my previous router, Netgear MR814v2, and in fact I am able to plug my Netgear router into my Linksys router, and my desktop NIC into my Netgear router and get an internet connection! So I know my NIC works.

    So, the router works and the NIC works, but the don't work together. Any advice?

    I've tried to install the latest firmware, but it doesn't work (after doing the recommended install, it still says Part of the firmware upgrade could be that my reset button on the router quit working? It used to work, now it doesn't, I can tell because the lights don't reset and my custom router settings remain (although it does have some effect, because after pressing it I have to reboot computer to get internet connection again).

    I'm going to cross-post in the WRTXXX forum, since this is really a router problem not a VoIP problem (my phone has a dial tone just fine).

    May be the problem is the cable. The netgear autoswitch the ports, so no normal xover cable problems.
    Don't know the linksys, bay be you should try a xover cable.
