I recently moved and had to change my DSL account to a new location. When I did, I figured, I'd close out my existing account and open up a new one under a new (lower) price agreement with the provider.... That part went well.
In the old account, I used to have a DSL Modem, and used the box or a router to handle pppoe config and activity.
I own a D-Link DI-524, so I configured it to handle the PPPoE and I plugged the box into it, or use it's nice wireless fetaures.... worked like a charm... no complaints there
In the new account, they gave me a new modem that kinda acts like a router itself. The modem itself handles the pppoe config and activity, and ini the computer you just plug in as a regular LAN.... That's all well and good, except for one thing
Ever since this change took place, I'm unable to connect to IRC networks.
I have configured the D-Link router to NOT handle PPPoe anymore, and simply connect as if it were a regular LAN connection... and I can browse the web just fine... download stuff, everything.. except IRC or gnutella networks.
Has anyone ran into this problem before?
Can anyone think of any possible solutions to this?
