Re: WiFi Problems (It doesn't work properly)

David, you have yet to properly describe your problem.

OK, the search statements mean nothing.  It's bogus, but all that does is
append a domain name if you try to use an unqualified host name.  IF you
have more than one machine on your home network, you might actually want
that to say something else, otherwise it doesn't matter.

What is  This is what people have been talking about, re: you
running your own DNS.  According to your system, this is the only DNS
server it talks to.  It's not one of Bell's servers, which are most likely:

dns1.sympatico.ca.      1800    IN      A
dns2.sympatico.ca.      1800    IN      A
ns5.bellnexxia.net.     3600    IN      A
ns6.bellnexxia.net.     3600    IN      A _looks_ like a cable or wireless router.  If it was your DSL
modem, you would be working, so it isn't. :-)

I did get that in HTML form, but once is enough :-)

What on earth is it?  Did you forget to mention the little detail that this
is how you're configuring your wireless router, or do you not even _have_ a
wireless router?

I don't see anything in this long thread that even suggests you've tried to
make this connection through the ethernet connection on your wireless
router, which should be the first thing you try.

Before we try anything else tell us:

A) Make & Model of your DSL modem
B) Make & Model of your Wireless router 
C) How does B connect to A (if they're not a single unit)
D) What happens when you plug into your DSL modem
E) What happens when you plug into your wireless router (if A & B aren't a
single unit)
