I have a DSL Westell modem (about 3 years old) and a Linksys wireless router.  I recently installed a wireless printer/copier/scanner/fax.  Since then, I can't get DSL to connect.  I can still get on the internet, but it only connects through a "gateway", even though DSL is selected as my default connection.  Any suggestions on how to fix this without reinstalling Verizon DSL?

When you say you can't get the DSL to connect...How do you get on the internet if the DSL isn't connecting?  All you did was install a wireless printer and everything crapped out?


did you make any changes to the wireless settings?  Also, is the wireless printer trying to share the same Ip address withthe modem or the router.  Can you manually change the ip address of the printer?
