Yeah well, he isn’t that savvy with it anyways. That’s it, your computer should be able to surf at that point. Thank you everyone for your help.

Still best bet is to go and buy a new router to play it safe, because SBC have everything jerry-rig. Maybe that yateway SafeEyes dungeonguard suggested would work. He just unplugs it, nothing fancy.
I tried it but I can’t make it work. A mod can close this.

You may need to change the Linksys firewall settings, which is more than I can handle — hopefully a Linksys guy can jump in if you need help with that. If there are things I need to change, may I ask what settings I’d have to obtain first in order to be in sync with the current router.
Your network already has a router 2Wire and the switch would have basically just acted as a “splitter” for the line you ran to your room, giving you a few more ethernet ports there.

Ok, I’ll cut the background enough so that it won’t humiliate me too much. I was just wondering if I cold use the 2Wire as 2wirre wireless router and connect it to the Comcast modem. I’d reason with him, but he’s touchy with his toys. Buy a new Router, don’t waste time with that one unless you can get it to work.
WintermuseApr 9, My question is, if 2wore purchase the same model 2wire router in my room, stick the phone line into the router and stick that into my computer, will Gageway be able to go online with that current DSL plan?
Or is each router preconfigured different? Because as I see it, the router is encrypted, the easy part is the number is printed on the bottom. Sorry if that sounds confusing, but the question again is: Can you login to the router and determine the WAN configuration? Yes, my password is: Welcome to Tech Support Guy! In anycase, I connected with the router, and here’s what I found.
