Question about Linksys Computers & Internet
I would just replace them if they are being flaky. 5 years is old for tech now-a-days. I replace mine every 3-5 years.

Often the nets and subnets are NOT the same.. ie The Fixed connection often uses 192.168.0.1, 192.168.1.1, however sometimes the wifi is setup 10.1.1.1, or 10.0.0.1 etc, have you checked this? Esentially tho ya router is an "Acess Point" and ya Lappy etc is ya "Client" the links below has a lot of tutorials to help have a look. http://portforward.com/routers.htm http://portforward.com/guides.htm

SOURCE: zhone linksys router
I had same problem but I think it's more of a simple solution. Linksys default IP it uses is 192.168.1.1, and guess what...so is the zhone router. I changed my linksys router to 192.168.10.1 and i am able to connect to the internet. Only problem I have left is some things are not working such as MSN messenger and https pages. I am wondering why...

i think the best way is to describe to you the physical setup first. so you have a computer, a modem, and a router. the setup should be like this: from the walljack, the phonecable is connected to the 6100, make sure there are no micro filters connected between the walljack and the phone line because it will not allow you to connect to the dsl. from the modem, the data/internet cable at the back of it, using an ethernet cable, should be connected to the router. and at the back of the router E1 to E4, another ethernet cable is connected there and the other end of the cable is to be connected to your computer. you are right in bridging the modem, the reason for that is because both the westell 6100 and router have GUI's or Graphical User Interfaces, in short, they each have their own virtual brain. you will not have a connection if both of them have this GUI thing, so you need to bridge your westell 6100, so that the only GUI active is the routers. to bridge the modem you may need assistance from tech support of your ISP provider. assuming that's done, light status in your 6100 should have a solid DSL light. for the router, it should have lights in WAN, WLAN if you want to connect wirelessly and E1 to E4, whichever ethernet port you're using for a wired connection. you have to access the GUI of the router to make sure you have a routable WAN IP Address. As for the IP address in your computer, it should be a 192.168.x.xxx type of ip address. this is the LAN IP Address. Basically you need to have routable WAN and LAN IP Addresses to be able to connect online. you will need to configure the GUI of your router to be able to do this. for that you may need assistance from tech support of the router or if you can follow the instructions in the manual, by all means do so. the most important thing in this setup is bridging the modem.
