DLink704 vs WinPoET
Posted on 2002-05-20
My ISP issues it's user WinPoET, a Wind River PPP-over-Ethernet utility. I have 2 PC's running Win98.
When the DI704 is connected as a HUB ONLY, using the front connectors, 1 PC can access the Web and ping all over from a DOS prompt.
However, when I allow the DI704 to connect, both PC's can access the Web at the same time (good!), but we cannont ping some common sites from a DOS prompt (bad!).
Our ISP, a local mom-and-pop telephone outfit, refuses to "support" home networking.
I called DLink, and they think it's an ISP problem. The ISP says I'm the only one having this problem. Any help/ideas/sympathy would be most appreciated!
