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

[snipped correct assumptions]

Thanks, /immensely/, for your insight--I set my address to, and have etherconf'ed my gateway to / netmask

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?
