i believe i have found a solution.. but i need someone to explain it to me in english.. or at least in terms of smc.. because the poster of the thread below has a different router from mine.. anyway here's the "solution":

OK, Linksys got back in touch with me and their suggestion worked!


"reply to QuinnHarlech
Here's the solution, at least for me:

Configure the modem to auto-negotiate the PPPoE connection and have a local IP address of 192.168.1.1

Configure the router to have a local IP address of 192.168.2.1 Go ahead and turn off DHCP on the router as you won't need it.

I then configured the router to use a static IP address of 192.168.1.47 and a DNS entry of 192.168.1.1, i.e. it lets to modem do all the talking. You can then either use static local address of the form 192.168.2.x or else let the router act as a DHCP server for the local computers. If you use a static IP address, then you say that the gateway and DNS server are both 192.168.2.1 (the router).

Everything seems to work just fine now. I have good connectivity and the Linksys router is acting as a proper firewall.

Thanks to everyone for their help."

I'm not sure about this one, but it means go into the modem settings and in the WAN connection type chose PPPoE, enter your username and password that were given to you by your ISP. As for how to get into the modem settings I'm not sure of that, I'm sorry but it should be in the installation manual, the number to access it should be something like 192.168.1.1

This means go into your internet browser and type 192.168.1.1 which should be the address for the router configuration, the password is admin unless you've changed it before. Now in the first page, where it says LAN IP Address, it might look like this: 192.168.1.1, change it to 192.168.2.1 and from now on that will be the address from which you'll access the router settings. Go to the DHCP tab and disable it, always save changes before going to another tab.

I don't understand this because I've never seen a DNS number being 192.168.anything.anything, it should be a number like a real IP address, not a local IP address. Just try the rest, it might work that way.

when you do a search on google, does it work? or does only the main google page work?

if only a few websites work and others dont, i reckon its a DNS problem. Are you sure you have the correct DNS ip on your computer?

If you can ping external IP addresses (such as 72.14.207.104) but not host names (such as www.google.com) then this is obviously a DNS related problem.

If this is the case, you’re going to want to go into your routers setup. Then find the option somewhere under the DNS section that says something to the regard of "automatic from ISP". That option will allow your router to receive a DNS address automatically from your Internet service provider.
