Linksys connection problem with sbc dsl
When hooking up the ethernet cord to the sbc ethernet port and then to the linksys internet port the dsl modem doesnt recognize it and the light does not come on. Therefore I dont get an internet connection. It used to work fine, then my son accidently disconnected it by unplugging it. I cant get it to come back. I have tried everything from resetting, to powering down. Nothing works
If the modem was supplied by your internet provider, I'd ask them if they can check it online.
If you can, first try linking the computer directly to the modem by an ethernet cable and see if you have internet.
That way you may be able to isolate the issue to the router, or the way it's handshaking with the modem.
