What is the IP address of the computer you are trying it on?

Open a command prompt window, type "ipconfig /all" and post the output here.

Well, the output looks good. I suppose you have also tried to access the router when you was not connected to the internet else it may interfere with the routing.

You have a static IP address on the computer. I suggest you turn on DHCP for a moment while disconnected from the internet. After you change to DHCP the computer should automatically try to get an IP address through DHCP. If the router is responding and sends a DHCP response you should be able to determine the router's IP address from the ipconfig /all output by checking the default gateway address. Maybe the router is on a different IP address.

DHCP is dynamic host controled protocol. Your isp has a server that hands out ip addresses whit an 8 day lease (I think it's 8 days) and that same server has a bucket load of addresses to hand out. Some ISPs require that you use it so you'll want to look into that.

Question, why is the subnet mask of the PPP adapter 255.255.255.255? Why is it's default gateway the same as it's ip address?

The subnet mask must be same on your nic as well as your ADSL modem/router and your default gateway should be your wan ip.

Why did you just repost the same info?

As I suggested you will want to visit the ISP web site and search the help page for DHCP configuration. If they do you will need to set your router to obtain IP address automatically. If not then you will need to statically assign the address they give you.

But you ignored to very important questions I asked concerning the default gateway and the subnet mask for your PPP addapter. That PPP adapter is the ISP supplied connection hardware for ADSL right? Also, please look to my questions before.

Sorry, but i dont really understand your question.
As for the PPP adapther, i put it to get a ip automaticly, so i dont really know much about the ip thingy.
As i said, im just a newbie in networkings.
Sorry.

Thank you.

The subnet mask must be same on your nic as well as your ADSL modem/router and your default gateway should be your wan ip.




It is normal for a PPP connection to have subnet mask 255.255.255.255 simply because it is a point-to-point connection thus all it requires for this connection to work is a host mask. The traffic then gets forwarded through the PPP connection.
