Anyone here familiar with ClarkConnect?

I'm trying to get a ClarkConnect gateway/backup server/whatever else I need to use it for working correctly. The setup is fine, and I can get 'net access to the CC box, but not the others on the network. My setup is as follows:

DSL modem >> CC Box >> Linksys wireless router >> Other machines on the network (2 desktops & 2 laptops)

My guess is that the router is the problem, but I'm not too sure (networking isn't my strong point). Any ideas?

If it's really a router, then the Linksys could be your problem. Was it plugged straight into the DSL before you put the ClarkConnect box into the system?

You can try plugging the CC box into the network side of the Linksys, and just use the Linksys as a switch. It prob'ly only has four ports, though.

Otherwise, you'll have to use the browser administration on the Linksys and make it look like you have three networks...
...The world outside the CC box.
...A two computer network between the CC box and the Linksys.
...The internal network between all your other computers.

Make the network between the CC box and Linksys a different IP range than the internal network... If the internal is 192.168.0.x, then make it 192.168.1.x. The Linksys is prob'ly set to get dynamic IPs from your DSL service. Change it to a static, and make it's gateway the CC box. This has the added benefit that you don't have to change any of the clients on the network, they still run through the Linksys like they always did.
