belkin wireless router and ADSL broadband

merlotkiwi, Jul 18, 10:12am
Belkin wireless router and ADSL broadband So I had my belkin wireless connected to Clear cable broadband in ChCh and it worked fine. No more cable as I am now in Oamaru, so I tried to connect my belkin wireless to my ADSL modem. Said ADSL modem works fine when wired, but not at all when wireless (wireless connection to pc fine, to internet not). Yes I have checked all cables, and I have gone round in circles in Windows Vista Network centre trying to get it to work. What dumbarsed bit of knowledge am I lacking to get this working? TIA =)

Reset the wireless router back to default and start from scratch.

Problem is on cable your cable modem is A layer 2 link so the belkin would have been setup to work with this, now you have a DSl router it will need reconfigured to work with the DSL modem. Get someone in who knows what they are doing would be the best bet. or reset the belkin and RTM

Aah thank you it seemed like a problem where the wireless couldn't see the modem, and I think that may be why. Ok, reset and a google for the manual looks like the way forward. Thanks.

Your problem put quite simply is When you were on cable the belkin was set with a static ip address now you have changed isp or gone to ADSL you will need to change your WAN settings from the static option to PPPoE If you use a DSL modem and/or your ISP gave you a User Name and Password, then your connection type is PPPoE.

Thanks got2 I remember having a devil of a time getting those settings right last time, I guess it will just be getting to the right page to update them. Thanks for your help.

Isn't it PPPOA ...every ISP I've been with uses PPPOA

Absolute crap as usual. Most ADSL in NZ is PPPoA NOT PPPoE and the ADSL modem takes care of the authentication NOT the router. Router can have WAN interface configured (will currently have TCL provided static IP address) to an address on same subnet as ADSL modem LAN interface.

So step number one is to determine what subnet your ADSL modem LAN interface is actually on - then you can configure router WAN interface.

Ok, so can you talk me through finding the subnet? Where do I hunt?
