    Not getting DNS Service - ActionTec and Linksys

    My setup:

    I am connected to the Internet with an ActionTec 701 via Qwest. I have 5 static IPs. The ActionTec connects to a Linksys switch.

    Connected to the switch is a Linksys WRT54G router, which is in the house (my office is in the garage). The WRT54G provides wireless in the house as the ActionTec signal won't penetrate the exterior stucco walls.

    I've set up the Linksys router with a static IP on the network. For wireless connections, it has an active DHCP which distributes IPs in the 192.168.1.100 - 110 range.

    When I connect to the Linksys router via wireless, I get an IP address and I can ping internal and external IP addresses; but the wireless machine does not get DNS service. I'm sure this is something simple. I've tried manually setting DNSs in the Linksys and on the wireless computer -- no luck.

    Here is my attempt to diagram the network

    Internet

    ActionTec701
    |
    Linksys Switch

    LinksysWRT56G

    Wireless connection to laptop


    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Can you post an IPCONFIG from a laptop?

    Working!

    I reset the Linksys and everything started working.

    I think the problem was the static IP that I was assigning to the Linksys. It came up with an IP assigned by the ActionTec.

    Thanks for the help. -Cloy
