Nice work.

You could try changing the channel on the D-Link so it can't interfere with the Linksys.

When I get a chance I'll see about swapping the standalone modem back in.

Status / Interfaces.

You can also get onto the web interface for the modem, at 192.168.0.1. Login is 'admin' with the same password as for the router.

Re: Why our servers are down

The connection on the ADSL line is PPPoA. We have been using the ADSL modem as a PPPoA - PPPoE bridge, and then doing PPPoE on the router. This is nice because it keeps all the control and queues and so on in one place, which helps with the QoS stuff we need to do to make the net usable with lots of...
