The situation is that if a PC is directly connected to the RTA1320 with PPP IP Extension enabled, I can use the internet just dandy although I cannot see the modem admin pages any more (thanks to the TCL gateway oddity). If I introduce the WR1043ND in Dynamic IP mode and go via that, I can no longer get out to the internet.
In the comments under the walk-through I note there is a hack documented by Eileen to get around this. However, I have two issues with that:
1) I cannot get to my modem's admin pages to implement the change suggested.
2) I don't understand the hack (my shame knows no bounds).
Maybe I could get around (1) by resetting the router and implementing Eileen's hack before enabling PPP IP extension. But what exactly should I be doing when I do that? Grateful for pointers or any other ideas.
I'd like to get the basics working before going to Gargoyle but if Gargoyle would help, I could always do that first.
