help me to figrue it out.
The Device list:
1 Laptop with Wireless card.
1 DLink wireless router (DHCP disabled).
1 Eirecom ADSL Modem (Netopia), also working as DHCP, GATAWAY and
only has 1 Eth port.
when I connected ADSL(Netopia) TO DLINK using a network cable. and
then connected to DLink router wirelessly with the Laptop. (so far I
ADSL(Netopia) To the phone port yet) I do able to get a IP address
However I can't ping or telnet to ADSL Modem or DLink router, only
after I connect ADSL(Netopia) to the phone port.
I wonder could anyone help me out why this happended?
