Verizon DSL + Linksys 802.1g Wireless Router = No Internet Access
Posted on 2004-08-19
I recently got Verizon DSL. My intention was to use a router to share the DSL connection with another machine in the house. Connected the DSL modem directly to the primary machine, and it worked fine.
I connected a Linksys Wireless 802.1g Wireless Router to the primary machine, and now I cannot get internet access. I've set the router to DHCP config, and it recieved an IP from Verizon (dynamic), however when I run ipconfig from the command prompt, the machine tells me that the IP address of the machine is that of the router (192.168.1.1).
Also, when I attempt to sign onto Verizon's Web Browswer, I get the error message : "Could not connect to the Internet, No DDM enabled router detected", or something to that effect, I forget the correct wording.
Any ideas as to why connecting the DSL Modem to the router kills internet access?
Also, I attached a Linksys Wireless USB Adapter to the secondary machine, and it shows that there is a wireless network available (created using the router), but there is no internet access on that machine either.
