I recently switched my internet service from cable to sprint DSL. I am trying to set up a wireless network the way that i had it set up with cable, but i cannot get the modem that sprint gave me to speak to the router. I know that the router is working fine and the modem works great when it is wired straight to the computer.
The problem is when i go from modem to router to computer I cannot get an internet connection. I tried talking to sprint tech support but they will not help because it is a third party router and Belkin is blaming sprint so I am stuck.
Here is my equipment that I am working with
P4 computer running WinXP Home
Belkin F5D6231-4 Wireless ADSL/Cable modem
Sprint Modem is a 660ME-61 series ADSL
ISP Sprint High speed DSL 5mb
I have been doing a little bit of research and found some info on the 645 series modems that sprint has but not much on the 660 series. Some of the info i have found says that the modem has to be bridged. Is this true? If so, does anyone know how to accomplish this? Any info or instructions would be greatly appreciated.
