alright... i've got a linksys router that yesterday began acting strangely, and i can only get online through it about half the time.... instead of replacing it, i threw together an old 1.4ghz desktop with two NIC's and installed on it server 2003... i'd like this pc to take the place of the router but im runing into some strange issues with it... for internet service im using verizon FIOS, to connect to this, the linksys router uses DHCP, no static ip or pppoe or anything fancy... it connects that way fine.. when i take the main verizon cable however and plug it into either NIC on the server, it tells me the connection has limited or no connectivity, and that it was unable to obtain an IP...

anyone know what might be going on?

hmm.... just thinking... the verizon cord wasnt long enough so i've got a coupling and a 6 ft patch cord to make it long enough... should that be a crossover cable as opposed to a patch cable?
