	All the computers on our SOHO network had static addresses in the
192.168.0.1-9 range with netmask of 255.255.255.0 and all worked fine
for ages.  Now I have a Linksys gateway which has a default address of
192.168.1.1 for configuration.  It works fine as a DSL router but I
cannot use a browser to access the configuration.  All I get is "An
error occurred while loading http://192.168.1.1: Could not connect to
host."  Pinging returns "Destination Host Unreachable".

	I changed the netmask for the ethx device to 255.255.0.0 but this made
no difference.  What have I forgotten?

This is pretty normal.  Many routers are set to 192.168.1.1.  The simple way
to deal with it is to change the ip of one of your boxes to 192.168.1.x and
use that box to access the router.  Then you will be able to change the router
address to 192.168.0.1.  Reboot.  You must then change your box back to
192.168.0.x  From then on your router can be configured through your normal
browser without problems.

maybe easier is to use the builtin dhcp to configure the router then go back to static as explained here above
