OK, I turned off DHCP on the modem, set the router back to 192.168.1.1, the desktop to 192.168.1.2 & laptop to 192.168.1.3.
Set evrything's subnet mas to 225.225.225.0 (apart from the modem, which I can't change) & copied the DNS Servers & default gateway from the desktop's configuration when everything was set by the modem

This is after all the changes (& the traditional turn everything off/on)-

Both machines can see both the router (on 192.168.1.1) & the modem (on 192.168.100.1).
Neither can see the internet.
Neither can ping the other one's IP address (I'm not sure that's relevent).


I've included 3 screenshots of the router's setup pages. You'll notice that on the router status page, there's no IP address. When I change the basic setip to static IP, I don't know what the internet IP is (surely it'll change everytime I turn on the modem (?).) & any changes I make to it tend to end in me being told that "value is illegal!". The other options are PPPoE, PPTP, L2TP & Telstra Cable, none of which seem likely, as they all require a password & username.


On the Advanced Routing page, if I change the settings to
Destination LAN IP : 192.168.100.1
Subnet Mask : 255.255.255.0 (or 255.255.248.0)
Default Gateway : 82.36.208.1

It returns the message "Invalid LAN IP or subnet mask!".

The Router setting on the advanced routing page was initally set to gateway, but I've changed that.
