Okay here it goes. I recently moved to a rural area from an Urban one and had to give up roadrunner for DSL (i know, it sucks). The tech came in hooked the modem up and made some changes in network connections, didn't really pay much attention at the time. I should have asked him to hook the router up to but it didn't cross my mind. Anyway, My connection is stable with only the modem setup. But when I hook the router up to, my machine tells me it's connected to the net, but I can't access anything on the net. Also when I go into my router setup, the WAN IP address i get is a 192 address. That's not correct is it? I tried cloning my MAC address, I tried using a MAC address from an extra NIC card my dad has in Florida. I tried many things and haven't been able to get access with my router. Its weird because I didn't have to make any alterations with the router when I had roadrunner, just plugged it in and I was good to go. I want to get this up and running though so I can better regulate the traffic coming and going from my connection, so I can establish a subnet, and so my roommate can get his PC online as well.
Thanks for any insight everyone.
