According to the addressing here, the router's interface is on a
different network than your NIC. In order for IP packets to move from
one network to another, a router must exist to connect the two
networks. However, you don't have that.
Here's what you currently have :
Node Node Address Network Address
router 192.168.254.254 192.168.254.0
computer 192.168.0.1 192.168.0.0
[snipped correct assumptions]
Thanks, /immensely/, for your insight--I set my address to 192.168.254.1, and
have etherconf'ed my gateway to 192.168.254.254 / netmask 255.255.255.0
Once I connect (using the PPPoE interface within the router), I get access to
the outside! My connection was turned-on today and I'm getting about 84kB/s
(much better than my old 53.2k dialup).
Only problem, it seems, is that I still need to manually connect within the
web-interface of the router--I can't seem to trigger the connect otherwise.
I tried setting the router to being a DHCP gateway, but I get no connect (if I
set it correctly, that is).
Any further thoughts?
