Question about Computers & Internet
This is a general issue with the DSL modems. Most of the DSL modems have the same IP address as of the Routers. This is a case of NAT behind NAT which can be resolved by changing the IP address of the Linksys router.
Make sure that the TCP/IP on the Ethernet adapter of the computer should be set to automatic option.
Do not connect the DSL modem to the computer or to the router. And just connect a Ethernet cable between the linksys and the computer.
Access the linksys page using the IP address of http://192.168.1.1
login using username as blank and password as admin
Under setup click on basic settings. Under Internet Connection Type set it to Automatic Configuration DHCP. Let the other values be as default and under Local IP Address set it to 10.0.0.1. Subnet mask will be 255.255.255.0 DHCP server be enabled.
Under starting IP addess set it as 10.0.0.100
For Static DNS 1 set it as 126.96.36.199 Static DNS 2 as 188.8.131.52
Set your time Zone and click apply.
Now turn off the router and connect the modem to the internet port on the router. Turn on the modem first and when the lights on the modem show up then turn on the router. Once the router is on then check for internet connection.
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.
