    I have an old 2Wire 1701HG Gateway which is a router/modem for my DSL. I've been trying to hook a Linksys WRT54GL to it, but its not going so well. I've got the modem in bridge mode so the router connects to the PPPoE, but I can't seem to access the internet from my computer connected to the router. The router has Tomato firmware on it. I know the router is connected to the internet because I am able to ping google.com with the Tomato firmware. Anyone have any ideas? Its late so I'm gonna go to sleep and try again tomorrow.

    Did you turn off DHCP on the modem? If I were you I'd just complete turn off the router function in the 2Wire since you're using the Linksys for that.

    Oh ho ho guess what. Just the other day i went through this agonising process with a 2Wire 2701-A

    Make sure on 2Wire:

    DHCP is off.
    Set a manual IP for it. (lets say for this 192.168.1.254)
    Internet mode is PPPoE
    Bridge mode

    Now for the Linksys:

    IP address is 192.168.2.254 (the '2' scope is important, as long as its not the same as the 2Wire)
    Set the DHCP accordingly (IP range: 192.168.2.1 192.168.1.253, gateways (dns and others to the linksys address)
    Set up PPPoE connection with your user name and pass


    SHOULD work now. Feel free to ask to clarify on anything, because i feel your pain brother. Curse you 2wire

    kk no idea what I did, but got it working.
    Cleared the nvram on the router which I never did after flashing tomato onto it.

    Works now.

    Didn't have to mess with the stuff you said, thanks anyways though.

    Yes, 2wire sucks.
