Yeah, Karl, in his great wisdom decided to start a new thred
and confused me to.  Didn't know if he meant me or someone

I get online but can't ping my router/gateway
which is correct according to ATT.  Also couldn't ping to other
machine on my lan.

It's wireless and haven' t hooked it up wired yet.  May be the last
resort.  Also haven't tried DHCP again yet which may let me connect
to 2wire.net DSL configuration page again.  I'm still waiting for other 
replies to my original post before I go too far and break the chain.  But,
they're on my to do list when the time is right.

Do now but Karl still doesn't.  I probably need to reset my router
again but as said above need to wait on other replies before I do
too much.

Yeah, I did.  Have actually lost connections several times.
Usually an ifdown and ifup restarts the connection but last
time I had to reboot and change my wifi setup from restricted 
to open.  Probably got changed when messing with kwifimanager.

That too is to be done but waiting for other replies before doing so.
BTW, nice to have someone list rational things to do. Nice to talk with
