wireless Configuration

By Friscojw ·
I have setup numerous wireless network with a cable router but have run into an issue with DSL and I want the basics defined from an IP addressing perspective. If the router is set to 192.168.0.1 what needs to be dome on the router outbound side. If I connect the dsl modem up to a workstation can get to the Internet. If I add the router I can't get out. What am I missing?

On the outbound side, once you've set the channel information (usually preset) and input the account username and password in the PPoE settings, the connection on the ISP side is automatic.

Most DSL routers also act as DHCP servers. Enable this, and set your clients to use automatic settings. If this isn't possible, assign IP addresses in the same subnet to each client, and set their default gateways to 192.168.0.1. In the manual case you'll have to obtain DNS server addresses from your ISP, though some models use the same address as the gateway and have the router relay DNS queries transparently.

I ran into the same problem with my dsl connection and the modem. Try changing the lan address in the routers setup to a different one for ex. My LAN IP by default on the router was 192.168.1.1(which would be defualt gateway also) which was causing a conflict with the modem and would not let me connect. I changed the default LAN IP to 192.168.254.1(this is now my default gateway) and was able to connect to the internet.

Please try and let me know what happened!
