    I have had great service for almost 4 years from Comcast and almost 2 years from my WRT54G. I am now signed up with Qwest DSL from a local ISP. Why, you probably won't ask? Comcast finally (after more than 3.5 years) figured out I was running a web/ftp/terminal server and cut off outside requests for service coming in. No more web/ftp/terminal server. So I jumped on DSL.

    The DSL router supplied is an "Actiontec GT701-WG" (like any of you care or know anything about it...personally, it's no Linksys. I don't like it.). It has 1 ethernet port, supposedly for a host computer or to a networking device to split the connection amongst several computers. It also has a wireless capability (wireless router or gateway or something). I think the gist of what they want you to do is run your entire network wireless. Cool, except I don't have 2 wireless nics for my computers, and I already have wireless with the WRT54G. I am ignoring wireless on this one for now, I just want both computers up at the same time via wire.

    So here's my status:

    1) Cable connection via cable modem to WRT54G to both computers works fine.

    2) DSL connection via DSL router with ethernet cable direct to 1 computer works fine

    3) DSL connection via DSL router to WRT54G to both computers, both computers are unable to reach each other or the internet.

    A) Linksys recommends their router be, which I had set up.
    B) Qwest/Actiontec recommends their router be, which I had set up. I changed the LAN IP of the WRT54G to and the IP of my primary computer to, all using mask and gateway (as when I configure for cable, the gateway is of the WRT54G). Still no connection. I've tried using Static IP, DHCP, PPPoE and Heartbeat Mode on the WRT54G to no avail.

    I'm not sure where else to go with this. If anyone has any ideas or any experience with something similar to this, I could use some suggestions.

    Hell, I'm even in the midst of CCNA classes so I SHOULD be able to figure this out. I feel like a moron. :morons:

    thanks for any answers in advance.
