my problem: my internet works fine, because a powerbook g3 400mhz connected to a port on the back of the 2wire system can connect, also i can connect wirelessly...
using a cat6 cable between the 2wire thing and one of my copmuters (WinXP, core2duo, 10/100 ethernet),
it will just say "internet explorer cannot display this webpage" and firefox wont work either. however, according to windows xp, it is connected!
same when it is like this: 2wire--->gigabit dlink--->PC
thats how it is right now, and how i want to leave it. (i do want it to work, though

Why is the IP address on the PC configured manually? Isn't the router a DHCP server? With a blank default gateway, you'll never connect to the Internet. At a minimum you need to specify a valid default gateway and a reachable DNS, but it's easier to let the router do its job.
Well... you need to find out what the internal subnet is setup for on the router, set the IP to one that resides on that subnet, set the default gateway to the router's IP, DNS you can use the google ones if you're in doubt... 184.108.40.206 and 220.127.116.11
a new install of winxp on a different computer(athlon64X2) with dual gigabit ethernet ports is connecting just fine. so it definitly is my other computer that is the problem. i may just do a reinstall of xp on that thing!!!
