MN-100 router to DSL modem communication problem

    After several months with no problems, today my MS Broadband 10/100 Wired
    Base Station (MN-100) decided not to communicate with my DSL modem. I can
    ping the router ( and other PC's, so network appears ok. If I
    connect the PC directly to the DSL modem, I can connect to the Internet, but
    not going through the router. I have powered-on and off all devices and
    rebooted several times. TCP/IP is set to obtain an IP address automatically;
    same with DNS.

    On one PC, I can use a VPN client+IE to get to the Internet.

    Any ideas much appreciated.

    If a full factory reset using a paper clip and the reset hole does
    not fix this, it is time to throw out this discontinued old router
    and purchase a new one.
