Thanks for the help so far...
The situation is this: The ADSL belongs to my landlord and is located
in her office. She's letting me set up wireless through her
connection, but knows nothing about how her ADSL is set up.
The ISP is the Instituto Costaricense de Electricidad, or the
government-run monopoly that controls electricity, telephone, and
internet services here in Costa Rica. Therefore, thanks to the
wonderful customer service provided by monopolies, I am hesitant to
reset the modem and risk loosing the settings configured by the
All I know about how the modem is set up is from the IPs that were hand
written on the box (one annotated LAN "188.8.131.52" and the other WAN
"10.34.147.0") and that when I checked the setup on the computer the
TCP/IP settings were set to retrieve IP automatically. Does this
necessarily mean that the ASDL is using DHCP? Perhaps not, and ont of
those IPs is the gateway address I should use.
The "status" light on the wireless is not on, which, according to the
manual, means that something is wrong. The dang manual doesn't explain
what kind of problem it might be, but I suspect it means it can't see
gateway. That sound right?
While looking through the manual for the ASDL modem I noticed it is
capable of "bridging", "routing", or both simultaneously. I'm not
really sure what this means. Should I be able to somehow configure the
wireless regardless of which mode it is set to? (I hope so,
considering I can't easily change that setting.)
Thanks again for all your help. I'll get this working somehow!
