Type "ipconfig /all" and check to see what your IP Address, Gateway, and DNS
are on the machine with WUSB54G. Try to ping the gateway. I assume the
gateway doesn't block ping. If other computer can ping the gateway, so
should this one. Ping an Internet address like www.google.com
get the IP,
on another machine. Try pinging that IP on the WUSB54G machine. If it
responds ok, then DNS is not getting through.
I'm not sure what your Internet connection is... but I've seen Windows
Internet Connection Sharing to be very flakey. This dns type of result is a
typical symptom of the connection sharing problem. Try deleteing the
"Preferred Network" entry of the Linksys in the WUSB54G machine and
re-connect, re-entering any security key that's needed.
More than one Gateway, aka DHCP server will definately also cause this kind
of symptom. If you are using ICS (Windows) as described before, as well as
Linksys WRT product with DHCP enabled, then you have 2 DHCP servers. If your
true Internet gateway supplies DHCP and NAT, then move the CAT5 connection
from the "Internet" port on WRT over to a switch port. Reboot the client
machine, or disable and re-enable the connection. It will find the correct
DHCP server and should start working ok.
