I just bought a new computer and am running Windows 7 x64 OS. My router is Westell 327W. My computer can find the gateway correctly and IPConfig indicates that everything is configured correctly at the computer end. The gateway recognizes the computer and the MAC address matches. However the gateway does not recognize that it is a ethernet connection with DHCP activated (as the computer indicates). My other computers both wired and wireless are connecting properly. What am I missing here?
I have called to Verizon, but can't get into their tech support (this is a alone standing DSL - no phone # attached) and thei internet chat tech support can't help. Any help from this forum is highly appreciated (either the correct # to tech support in WA or config advice).
