OK, here is the situation. I have BellSouth FastAccess DSL and want to set up a wireless network so that two PCs and a laptop can access the internet from time to time. Seems simple enough but here is the wrinkle, my connection from BellSouth is via fiber optic line which does not require a modem. The PC is connected directly to the DSL line into the house using an Ethernet cable. The absence of a modem seems to cause problems with a wireless network. BellSouth is of no help since they would rather sell me (for a monthly fee) their network equipment. I have tried using a wireless router, which worked for a time, but would loose the IP address dropping the connection. Anyone have a solution other than paying BellSouth more money?
