Try moving eth0 and your printer onto the 192.168.1.x subnet, or add
eth0:0 and configure it on that subnet.
Typically these gateways are setup to allocate client addresses
automatically via DHCP, whereas you've hardcoded your address as
192.168.128.yy The gateway's ethernet netmask is probably
255.255.255.0, so your PC is on a different subnet. This explains why
arp picks up the MAC address of the gateway, but you don't get any
The ATM LED probably refers to the DSL link trying to sync up (DSL
actually uses ATM cells!).
