    If the key you are supposed to use from your ISP doesn't work, I would call your ISP. If you feel you need a username/password to login to your connection, and you don't know the credentials, call your ISP.

    Get the theme here ;)

    Things not working is one thing, but not having the proper information to get things to work is quite another.

    I don't know why you would change anything in regards to IP on the router itself. Most routers will essentially have a static IP, but more along the likes of 192.168.x.x - whereas it sounds as if you are trying to assign your public IP handed out by your ISP, to your Router.

    What I would recommend is you disconnect your linksys for now, hook your PC into your Westell directly, and then call your ISP. At that point, if the connection isn't working it's their problem to figure out. Not trying to be direct you elsewhere, but they would know the proper configuration and settings to get you up and running.

    At that point, they may/may not help you get the router to work. But we could always help you with that ;)

    In some 2wires that I have set up the key is the bar code on the wireless router. I don't know why they did this, but it is only in certain models. I don't know whcih models functioned like that.

    Good to hear you got it working :)

    What values on your router did you configure statically?

    I don't see a point/benefit to giving it a Static IP, I would believe that means your ISP gives you a Static IP, which it doesn't unless you pay extra monthly for it.

    I would leave as DHCP.

    Could be something with the router itself, have you verified you have the most up-to-date firmware?

    Try taking the router out of the equation? See if you can run at least one of the PC's hooked into your DSL Modem directly for a few days, see how stable the connection is.
