Please kindly help me out !
I suddenly lost my internet connection last night. Now the problem is that I cannot go online. I have a SMC 11mps wireless router and the status of Cable/DSL in the Status page is showing as : DISCONNECTED. I tried clicking on the "Connect" button but it doesn't work.
From the Security Log, I see the following:
08:18:07 PPPoE send PADI
08:18:02 PPPoE send PADI
08:17:57 PPPoE send PADI
08:17:52 PPPoE send PADI
08:17:52 Dial On Demand (PPPoE)
I am certain that I am using the correct username and password for my ISP (SBC Yahoo!). Based on the security log, it seems like the router cannot even reach a point to attempt to try the given username and password. Also, the All the lights on the router are normal: Power, WLAN, and WAN lights are all solid green. I am also able to connect to the computers in my local network without any problem. Each computer in the network has been assigned an IP address, as well.
I have tried my usual tricks to reset/restart the router; turned off and on the cable modem; unplug the necessary cables and re-plug in the cables with no luck......
Please kindly advise.... I really appreciate for your help since I really need to have internet connection at home for my school work.
Thanks a million!
