I checked cables etc. I phoned Telstra who proceed to go through there tests and resets etc, this didn't fix it.
The problem is I can ping the static IP but the request times out for the defult gateway.
I have changed modems, I have changed computers, I have changed the network cable from the modem to the computer, I have uninstalled my antivirus and my firewall, I have disabled the windows firewall (which would make hardly any difference anyway) and each time I made a change I have rung Telstra to run through all the tests etc.
Still no go.
Big HELP please.
