    problem connecting dsl modem to pc

    A new problem arrive while doing test with my dsl modem
    & Linksys wireless router.
    I need to fix this before I can continue with the other problem
    For some reason
    Now I can't connect directly my dsl modem to my pc.
    If I click connect on my Dsl Isp Icon
    It give me the message can't connect error 678
    The light (enet) is not even green on my SpeedStream modem

    The only way I can connect is by going through the wireless router.
    I get the Local area Connection 100 mbps on the task bar.
    With it I get 1.5mb (This is what I'm trying to fix)
    But if I click connect at the same time on my Dsl Isp Icon
    it will also connect at 10 mbps and I will get I get 4mb
    The light enet is green on my SpeedStream modem

    Seem both connections work together on the router
    How do I get the dsl modem to pc connection working again
    It was working before

    Thank

    Well I dont know if this applies to DSL modems, I know it does for cable.

    When you go from direct connection to router, and back, each time you change it on cable you need to reboot the modem, so give that a try.

    You have to login into your modem and change it from bridge mode to routed mode that you could log in though the pc.

    Sounds like the modem already has your login information and is logging in for you ya.


    I"m not sure why you want to change the setup though since the router is the best pppoe client compaed to sofwtare imho since you are using the deivce it self to handle the network it's less taxing on your pc.
