Hi all,

I have an issue where my router and modem are not talking to each other. I can access the 'net fine using the modem and a cable, and I can detect and connect to the wireless network, but can't get internet access through the wireless. I have all green lights on the modem, but when it's connected to the router, the internet light just flashes oragne.
Modem is a Speedtouch ST546, and Router is Netgear WGR614 v9.
I believed that the problem was the ip addresses - 192.168.1.1 for the modem and the completely different 172.16.0.1 for the router. I accessed the router and changed its ip address to 192.168.1.2, thinking that putting it on the same network would cure it, but no. Now I can't access the router at all.

Here's the output of my ipconfig /all:

I just know that it's something small that's keeping this from working, but am pretty much at my wits' end with it. Any help at all would be appreciated.
