I have these:
- Windows XP / Ubuntu 12.04 desktop PC
- DSL Connection
- Siemens SE260 ADSL2+ modem
- Linksys WRT54G V7, firmware 188.8.131.52
I have 2 main issues.
First, I don't know if I've set this up (cables and settings) correctly. As far as I know, I haven't changed anything from the modem's WAN settings:
And for the Router:
The only thing that I don't understand is why I have to plug the modem's ethernet cable to the ethernet port (and NOT the internet port) of the router to work. I don't know if that's an issue, since most google results say the internet port should be used. So I have this setup:
PC -> Router ethernet port 2
Router's ethernet port 1 -> modem's ethernet port
Do I need to fix anything?
Second, I'm having intermittent connection issues for both wired and wireless connections. After some 15-20 minutes the connection drops. Restarting the modem or the connection resolves it.
Please help. Thank you.
