You should be getting internet access if you are getting a default gateway address. indicates you are connected to the 2degrees broadband network.



Double check you haven't set any static IP configuration (e.g. hard-coded DNS server addresses) on your devices. In Windows make sure the TCP/IP configuration for your LAN adapter in particular IP address and DNS server addresses are set to obtain automatically. Instructions here:
