Question Please Help Me: Zyxel DSL Modem, D-Link Router, Fedora Core Internet Help


I have a Zyxel Prestige 645 DSL modem, a Sprint DSL account (through Earthlink), a Dlink DI-604 Router, and am running a Fedora Linux machine (core 1). I have not been able to connect to the internet as of yet. Any ideas what could be wrong? Do I have to configure my linux to talk to my router? I have been able to get a LAN and DSL light on my modem, and have been able to telnet into both router and modem, as well as configure both through their respective web administration utilities. But somehow, when I check the status screen on the router's web utility, i do not get an outside IP. Could someone please help me?

Have you told the router to connect?
I also use the DI 604 & have no problems

The router to connect to the DSL? I have configured it both with PPPoE, and then I tried Dynamic IP. Neither worked, and I did try to connect it from the status page. And it is syncing with the computer because I can telnet into it, as well as access the web config page. I went to the status page and clicked DHCP Renew with the Dynamic IP and PPP Connect with the PPPoE, and neither worked. I kept getting an invalid IP.

A few things,
[list=1][*]Linux doesn't want to know about your router, except as a gateway[*]You don't need PPPoE on your Linux Box[*]If your ISP requires a login, which it probably does, you need PPPoE enabled on your router, plus you need to enter your username/password.[/list=1]

The first thing we need to accomplish is to get your router and modem talking to each other and get connected.

The tech support people said that if I could not get my modem working directly to my linux box then it would not work with my router. I don't think this is true. All the lights on my modem and router are on, and I can telnet into both of them. I think that there is a problem with IPs. Everytime I "dial in" to my router, and look at the status page, it tells me that I am connected to the IP of 192.168.1.2. My modem's IP is 192.168.1.1, and my routers is 192.168.0.1 . Is there any routing I need to do within Linux to fix this? Maybe change a subnet mask? I am so confused. Someone please help me solve my problem. I don't feel like spending another $40 on another DSL modem.

did you enter username & password in modem & enable PPPoE there?
are you using static IP's on router & computer?

Only one device needs to do PPPoE, in this case, the modem's the best choice.
It handles login to your ISP & grabs IP adddress from them so DHCP must be enabled on the WAN side (ISP)

the router needs to be configured with static IP's on both sides WAN side needs to be:
192.168.1.X, where x is between 2 and 254. looks like it's 192.168.1.2. Good

The LAN side should be 192.168.0.x, where x is between 1 and 254. looks like it's 192.168.0.1. Good

Your computers should have an address in the range 192.168.0.x, where x is between 2 and 254.

If you connect to the router with a web browser, there's a ping tool that will ping from the router to the net. Try yahoo.com

your computer needs to point to the router's internal address, to set this up type:

route add default gw 192.168.0.1

try this and see how far you get. Post any/all errors
