I have the following
- Binatone DT845W wirless ADSL2+ router
- An ethernet port with static ip which provides access to the internet
Problem: I want to configure internet access via the router, so that I can connect multiple devices to the internet via the router. I can connect directly using my laptop to the ethernet port (2). The laptop runs Ubuntu 10.04. The ISP has provided a static ip, subnet, gateway and dns server addresses.
I am unable to configure the ADSL router. Earlier I was using it seamlessly with a incoming DSL connection. I have no idea how to configure it using the incoming ethernet port.
The router has one pot for DSL, four ethernet ports and a wireless antenna (Nothing specifically like a WAN port). It has indicator lights for the DSL, WAN, Ethernet port, Power and Internet. When I used to connect via the DSL line, the DSL, WAN and Internet lights would flicker. However, now only the WAN light does so, no DSL and no Internet lights!! :(
I tried connecting the input ethernet to one of the lan ports of the router, put in the configurations for static ip in the router. Still the status displays as 'Not Connected. ADSL Link Failure'.
Can this device even do what I want it to do? Or does it need a DSL input to work?? If this device is not capable of doing such a thing, can somebody please point out a device which can do this (both is even better!!).
Can somebody please please help me out??
I will be eternally grateful!!!
