    First this is my setup:
    ==== cable
    ///\\\ wireless

    Comcast Cable Modem ===== Netgear WDNR3700V2 (Gargoyle 1.5.6)
    Netgear WDNR3700V2 (1.5.6) ///\\\ WRT54G (Gargoyle 1.5.) ===== PC1 & PC2

    The WRT54G is set up as a wireless bridge (no repeater).

    The problem: whatever I connect to the WRT54G does not have access to the internet

    *Anything connected directly to the wdnr7300 works just fine
    *I can ping all clients connected to the wrt54g (PC1 & PC2) from any other client in my lan
    *PC1 & PC2 can ping any clients connected to the WNDR3700V2
    *already done multiple restarts
    *If I ping an internet host from a client connected to the wrt54g (PC1 or PC2), the ip gets resolved, by I get a messgae stating that he host is unreachable.

    Help please!!! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    It appears that i have internal connectivity but no access to the outside world from the wrt54g. Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance,

    Same problem. wrt54g says it's connected. My linux box says it has a connection. I can see the default interface.
    Nothing resolves. My Linux box (/sbin/ifconfig) thinks it is
    I get service from an Optimum cable modem, which goes to a simple netgear switch
    That connection works just fine if I plug lead (from switch) directly into my linux box.
    But no DNS if I plug the lead into the wrt54g, and then patch that to the linux box

    I can ping from linux.
    So (it seems) everything is working except DNS
