Just connected to Woosh wireless but I am having a hard time getting it to work through my DSL-G604T router.

The modem works fine when connected via USB to the laptop.   Signal strength is at full bars.

However when i connect via ethernet to my router, it is a no go.

I performed a couple of google searches and have changed the following settings on my router as per a couple of posts:
Changed to PPPoE
Added username and password in modem
Selected DNS1 & DNS2 addresses
Changed MTU

However i still don't have any luck.   It's weird cause i think my laptop is pickign up some form of wireless connection as i am not gettign any error messages like "Limited or No Connectivity" however still can't surf the web.

Is there anything i am missing for these routers specifically???   Usually i'm pretty good with this stuff but this one has me stumped.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Riley

Welcome to Geekzone! As far as I could remember I had to assign IP addresses to each of the connected PC/Laptop to the router. Can't have DHCP running.

Hope this helps.

I'm a bit retarded when it comes to routers and modems - how do i assign IP addresses and turn off DHCP?

hmm you'd have to look at the manual sorry different routers, different settings. I am sure they have 0800 number :)

Just found this post by 'Rickles'

WHOA .... it's all working now, well at least the router/Woosh access/ethernet bit.

I cleared the router settings and started all over again using the Wizard, and NO DNS settings etc, just name and password.

Then again maybe the 3 brandys and the dead chicken I waved over it helped too .

I've yet to check all the security settings and recommendations, and "turn on" the wireless network to a another computer.


Will try this and hopefully will work

Any other augegstions would be greatly appreciated :D

The DSL-G604T is an ADSL router. You need an ethernet router.

mushion22: The DSL-G604T is an ADSL router. You need an ethernet router.

Really?   I thought you could get away with just using the router part of the ADSL router?   Dam that means i'm goign to have to go buy one then...

So in theory if i buy just an ethernet router(for example a Netgear WGR614), punch in my username and password into the router, set it to PPPoE and plug in the woosh modem, it should all work?

Their last gateway is a DHCP router, so to be honest, if they still use the same type of modem you need to disable DHCP on your router, and assign IP manually.

Theoretcially, yes. The router will have an additional ethernet port instead of the ADSL port which is where you modem plugs in.

Depends whether he is using the modem directly via PPPoE or using the VoIP gateway.

Update:

So I ended up buying a netgear wireless router, plugged her in, entered my username and password and she works a charm.

Thansk for your help
