I've used the same laptop to connect to this same LGR25 previously, but now it won't communicate. I'm using an ethernet crossover cable. When I connect the cable, there are two lights that illuminate on the LGR... one labelled "100" and another labelled "LNK". The light in between those two is labelled "LAN", and it does not illuminate. My laptop says that I am connected to the LAN at 100Mbps, but when I ping the router, it does not communicate (times out).
I know that another tech has been trying to set up this LGR as a half-router in order to allow communication by modem. Could this be related to my present communications problem? How can I check? Another tech suggested that my ethernet cable must be ng.
Any suggestions as to how I can reestablish communication will be appreciated.
