No Internet Through Router

Postby bobolo » Tue Feb 19, 2008 8:41 am


Some facts:

* New Linksys Wireless-N Router
* Windows XP
* Wireless Broadband ISP
* Can connect w/o going through router
* Cannot connect going through router

I have had this service for a few years and this is a unique problem I have recently come across. For these years, I have had it set up coming from the wall > modem > router > computer1 > wirelessly to computer2. Now, it only is working if I bypass the router.

I have tried:

* Two Routers (the other was Linksys Wireless-G)
* Subbing in 3 other computers as 'computer1'
* 4 or 5 ethernet cables
* Calling the ISP to ask if for some reason I need to change any settings on my router
* (They said no)

I have also thought that my ISP was only letting the MAC address of my computer connect, and denying my router's MAC now for some reason. So I did a 'Clone PC's Mac' (or whatever it's called, I am not super-knowledgeable on the subject, obviously) and that seemed to not work. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance.
