Router is "best data" GS8100 Modem Router - lan ip 192.168.1.1 - wan ip 38.117.xxx.78 router gateway 38.117.xxx.1
I can ping/login from the web into the router thru 38.117.xxx.78. Which tells me its setup right on the internet.
ip address 192.168.1.3
localy, I can ping/login to the router thru 192.168.1.1 OR 38.117.xxx.78
but i can not ping ANYthing else on the net, not an ip address, not a name. not even the routers gateway (38.117.xxx.1)
Here is what I dont understand. If i can only ping 192.168.1.1 I would blame it somewhere on the setup of my computer, or router. But how come i can ping 38.117.xxx.78?? i did a tracert and it finds it in 1 hop! where does it find it? the computers local address is a totaly diff network (192.168.1.0)!??
