I have set up a small two computer network at home. I have a Cisco (Lynksys) WRT160N V2 Wireless N Broadband Router on the main computer and a Cisco (Lynksys) WMP300N Wireless N adapter on the other computer. I have a Speed Touch ST516 modem.
Now, this was all set up and working fine already. However, the phone line I was using was too long and the internet connection would drop once in a while. So I moved the modem closer to the phone jack and got a 50 foot Cat6 cable to reach the computer. Before I got the new Cat6 cable I had to run the internet directly through the computer so I could work. When I got the new Cat6 and reconnected everything I lost the internet through the router. If I connect the internet direct to my ethernet port on the computer it works fine. But if I plug the internet into the router and connect the router to the ethernet on the computer no internet.
Now, I do remember that the first time I disconnected everything and then ran the internet direct to the computer I got a window come up in my browser to reconfigure the modem. I did so as it was before and it worked ok. But then I got the problem with the router. I configured it to use Routed PPP, PPPoE. I also tried the Bridged Connection setting but that didn't work either. There were two other settings, IP Router and ExpertRouter that I haven't tried.
I wasn't the one who set it up the first time when it was working. It was a tech guy from Best Buy so I don't know how he set it up.
If anyone can help me get this working again I would greatly appreciate it.
EDIT: I just wanted to add something here. Not sure if it matters but wanted to add it just in case. The other cable from the router to the computer is a Cat5 cable, the 50 foot one is Cat6.. not sure if that matters or would maybe be the problem...
