Recently I installed a Verizon DSL line in my office. It is connected to a Dell Desktop and uses a Westell modem/router. When I run an ethernet cable from an older Compaq desktop to the Westell router, it connects fine, and I can access web sites..
However, when I switch computers and run the ethernet cable from the Westell modem/router to my Toshiba M45 Satellite, it will connect to the internet, but it will not connect to web sites.
When I take the Toshiba laptop home and run the ethernet cable to my Cox cable modem, the laptop connects and works fine.
Since I am not setting up a wireless connection but am just running an ethernet cable, can anyone explain why the laptop works with the cox cable modem but will not work with the dsl system?
