gateway and IP on different subnet

    I have two ways to connect to my ADSL modem so that it behaves like I want it to.
    The first way is to use PPTP, but PPTP disconnects every now and then and I have to use the disconnect and connect button on the status page which is not usable.
    The other way is to use a dhcp spoofing configuration on my ADSL modem (speedtouch 510i ISDN) and use either DHCP or fixed IP on the WRT54G v1.0 router.
    The first way, DHCP gets all the right addresses, but I can't access the internet, ie. the PC's connected to the router through either wireless or LAN do not get internet access, whereas I plug in the LAN cable from the modem directly into a PC that PC does have internet access.

    The second way would be to enter the IP addresses manually but the WRT does not accept to IP addresses I have for my connection.
    The internet IP address is on the 84.80.x.x subnet and the gateway is on the 195.190.x.x subnet. The stupid thing keeps complaining that the internet IP and the gateway IP are on different subnets.

    Why doesn't the WRT54g not accept these addresses to be on different subnets?

    Update your firmware.
    some firmwares do have PPTP client problems, which cause hangs and random disconnects.

    I've had this problem with the latest sveasoft, eg.
    freeman 1.04 fixed it for me, and works like a charm now.

    I would be more then happy to change firmware, but I have the V1.0 hardware version, and from what I have heard freeman will not run on 1.0 hardware...

    there are still firmware revisions that work on V1 hardware.
    freeman does not.
    but alchemy should, imho.
