I've been hooked up today with cable (yay!) which works fine when the cable modem is plugged directly into the pc (running Vista x64 SP1), but for some reason I just can't get it to play nice with my shiny new WRT54GL (with the latest Tomato firmware, connected via cable). I can access the WRT to change settings fine, and the pc appears in the device list, but that's about all that works.
The plan was to have my pc and xnet VoIP adapter allocated fixed addresses in the network (I'm postponing working on the phone adapter for now, and when that works I can see about getting my DS to play nice with the wireless, but that's still a bit further down the track). Unfortunately my inexperience is shining through (all I've had to setup previously was a adsl modem with built-in 4-port router), as I don't know where to start troubleshooting, besides double-checking I've entered the right numbers in the right places, and plugged the right cables in the right ports.
The network (as best I planned it) consists atm of:
Cable modem => WRT (192.168.0.1) => PC (192.168.0.2)
In the WRT, I set the connection type to 'Static', entered the IP address, subnet mask, gateway IP, and DNS servers as written down by the tech who installed it, but the pc was unable to access the 'net. (I tried this both with a static IP on the PC, and with automatically allocated addresses)
What should I try next?
