I'm using a LinkSys router and have no problems with connecting over the cable modem through the router, and no problem with a dial-up modem to another AS/400 at another client site. Both work well and work simultaneously. This does trigger a thought in my mind though. For other reasons all together I have gone into the LinkSys router configuration under "Advanced" and changed my machine to be in the DMZ. Maybe thats needed for Client Access? If so, I lucked out. -------------------------------------------- Booth Martin MartinB@Goddard.edu 802-454-8315 x235 -------------------------------------------- -------Original Message------- From: firstname.lastname@example.org Date: Wednesday, December 05, 2001 11:36:49 PM To: email@example.com Subject: RE: AS/400 Access via the Internet Lester, Check the archives for this because I know we've talked about it. I first bought a LinkSys router that did exactly what you're describing, exchanged it - same problem. Then I replaced it with a NetGear router and I've had no problems since. But, others have posted that they use LinkSys with no problems. Look for posts from John Taylor because he went all out looking for the cause. I don't know what he wound up doing.
