networking with a DSL router
I bought an Ovislink SR-500 router/switch, but can't configure it.
It has a default address of 192.168.1.254, and I'm supposed to be able
to configure it via telnet at port 333. Unfortunately I can't even ping
My internet connection is up on ppp0/eth0 as I write this and I'm
trying the following steps:
ifconfig eth1 192.168.0.2
route add 192.168.1.254 eth1
and route -n says
Kernel IP routing table
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref
126.96.36.199 0.0.0.0 255.255.255.255 UH 0 0 0 ppp0
192.168.1.254 0.0.0.0 255.255.255.255 UH 0 0 0 eth1
192.168.0.0 0.0.0.0 255.255.255.0 U 0 0 0 eth0
192.168.0.0 0.0.0.0 255.255.255.0 U 0 0 0 eth1
0.0.0.0 188.8.131.52 0.0.0.0 UG 0 0 0 ppp0
When I try ping 192.168.1.254 I can see the light on the router
flashing but get 100% packet loss. telnet just times out.
(the 192.168.0.0 stuff is from snort, I think)
I know next to nothing about networking and its manual assumes M$.
Does anyone have any ideas on where I'm going wrong?
