Philip SNA6500 WiFi Router config - gateway probs

  _PhilS_ 00:16 12 Jul 2007

I'm attempting to install a Philips WiFi router as part of an network infrastructure and plan to use this router as an Internet gateway. I have been able to configure this router such that files can be shared between machines. However, connecting any machine to the Internet is proving difficult. This router connects to the Internet OK and via LAN card to a PC used in the configuration/test phase.

I did have problems with the ADSL config that failed to connect to the ISP. If connection is done manually it does sync up and become established. I have tried totally removing all firewall applications to determine if the internet Gateway can be configured to allow traffic to pass through.

Please direct me to the next thing to try.

The important/only changes made were to the LAN properties namely:

Select “Obtain an IP address automatically;

Obtain DNS server address automatically.”

Now gives local & internet access.
