LAN HW:
DSL modem: DSL-321B
Belkin Playmaster WiFi Router
ASUS Laptop ( dual-boot – Win 7 – Linux Mint 15 )

satus:
DSL-321: DHCP on, 192.168.1.1 ( all lights green – DSL, LAN, Power )
Belkin: DHCP off, 192.168.1.2 ( light: red blinking = no internet connection )
ASUS: 192.168.1.5

issues: ( line in from ISP->DSL-321->Belkin->ASUS )
1. no internet connection via the belkin
2. asus connected to belkin cannot ping DSL-321
( Internet connectivity proven by connecting laptop directly to the DSL-321 )
( belkin responds on192.168.1.2 with config page )

Note: strange things about the DSL-321
1. date/time – year range limited to 2012
2. only way to disable DHCP / set a status address ( wanted to change the range, defaults to 2-254)...
- change WAN connection to static ( from PPPoE ) - reboot – change range-reboot
3. very slow to respond when hard-wired to laptop ( connection to remote sites no problem )
4. DHCP time out set to 60 seconds... can't change it. Well, can but can't apply change


Guess it's something I'm [not] doing but what?

thx

could you clarify what you mean by DHCP on the modem. the modem wont do DHCP for the LAN and is only there to get an external IP from your ISP. so in terms of setting scopes and such the modem shouldn't be able to do that... that's the job of the router.

This is what I've tried...

on the DSL-321B... 192.168.1.1
WAN connection config: PPPoE
WAN-side (from ISP) modem gets and address - 88.64.xx.yyy
LAN-side: DHCP on: DHCP server defaults - 192.168.1.2 to 192.168.1.254

Belkin:
config 1: PPPoE
static IP : 1923168.1.2
DHCP off

config 2: PPPoE
static IP : 1923168.1.2
DHCP on

config 3: Dynamic
static IP : 1923168.1.2
DHCP off

config 4: Dynamic
static IP : 1923168.1.2
DHCP on
