    *CRYING* Help with a BroadBand Router and our Network

    Hi everyone,

    This is probably an easy one, but I'm not hitting the right buttons.

    As the regulars on here know I'm fed up of being blocked from using various websites (including here) by the powers that be at our County Council. Now I'm having problems downloading HP drivers for printers of all things. I've had a broadband connection installed into the server room and purchased a Belkin Wireless ADSL Modem / Router.

    It's sitting on the network fine, I can wirelessly access it and also via hardwire as well.

    The problem is that I can't get the Belkin to be my primary access point for the Internet. It point black refuses to let me through. I know the connection and the Belkin work on as a seperate IP Group, but I want it on the school network so that I'l be able to dial in from home eventually and give me full access to the internet.

    The school network is on ??.??.2.1 and the Belkin is sitting at ??.??.2.11 . I've turned it off as a DHCP Server.

    What am I doing wrong? I want to make the Belkin my access to the Web, and not the Proxy Router County thing.

    Any ideas please?

    If you need more info or I've missed something out please post.

    Thanks guys.

    Have you set your default gateway to the new router?

    Yep, still the same.

    If that means the same as ChrisH then yep.

    Any other suggestions or ideas?

    My laptop is hardwired and also has an inbuilt wireless card as well.

    Type "route print" at the cmd line and paste it here.

    Ok, hope this helps. I think I see the problem, but I don't know how to fix it.

    Cheers ChrisH.

    Re: *CRYING* Help with a BroadBand Router and our Network

    I have no idea now.

    The Belkin Router is on 10.98.2.11, the wired NIC is 10.98.2.121 and the wireless NIC is 10.98.2.226. The subnet mask is 255.255.254.0, but I still can't get connected though the Belkin Router. The main router/proxy works fine though.

    Still sounds like your default gateway is wrong. Unless your doing vlan stuff?

    Re: *CRYING* Help with a BroadBand Router and our Network

    I'm running IE with the proxy settings in IE-> Tools-> Internet Options-> Connections-> LAN Settings-> Then 10.98.2.5 in the Proxy Settings and 1080 as the port, and Bypass Proxy Server for Local Addresses. This is the school Intenet Access settings.

    In Firefox I'm asking it to Direct Connect to the Internet. I've now also tried to auto detect settings.

    I've also fixed the two cards to the IP Addresses stated earlier, with subnets of 255.255.254.0 and the gateway as 10.98.2.11 (Belkin router address).

    What am I missing?

    DNS is broken. What DNS server(s) are you attempting to use?
