I've got this router that I've used in the past and it worked fine. Recently I've tried to use it again, but something isn't right and I can't put my finger on it.
Its a D-Link DI-604. I'm running Windows XP Home edition. My ISP is SBC DSL using a 2wire 1000SW DSL modem. Running the cat5 cable directly into the PC from the modem works fine. When I run it from the modem to the router, and from the router to the PC, all the lights come on on the router, my PC seems to "think" its connected, but I'm not getting anywhere. What I mean is, my instant messengers automatically try to start signing on, and under my connection settings, it says its connected, packets are flowing, and my default gateway is the usual 192.168.0.1. All my TCP/IP settings are set to DHCP, and option IP/DNS/WINS automatically. So all indications are that I'm connected... but I'm not :confused:
What else should I check that I am probably overlooking?
