Trying to help another with a router issue. The user has a linksys wireless router [WRT54G2 ver 1]through "Verizon" with a Westell DSL modem.
The user can connect to the internet through a physical connection to the router but no wireless connection is available.
-IP Config says: media disconnected
-Device manager shows no issues with the wireless network adapter and that it is working
- The carrier insisted on a 'bridge' connection
- Does the 'bridge' mode disable any of the router's functions?
- My experience has been that the router and the DSL modem should be on different sub nets. The user has the following:
192.168.1.1 and 192.168.1.100. Could this be at least part of the problem? Would changing the IP address to: 192.168.2.X make a difference?
- What else can be done to troubleshoot this issue?
