When you set this up did you go into the zhone and put in a user name and password to connect to your DSL connection?
Take the Linksys out of the loop for now.
You will need to set up the zhone first, so plug it back into your PC if its not - open a browser type 192.168.1.1 hit Enter -> in the user name and password boxes enter admin in both hit Enter.
This should take you inside the zhone router. I only see one place where you are able to do what you need to do and that is under Quick Setup with Auto-Connect Disabled. I do not see another screen shot of where you can Disable DHCP. Which is what you have to do. So on the left side click them one at a time and look for Enable and Disable DHCP. You have to disable DHCP so you don't have 2 devices trying to do DHCP. If you can't go through the steps in Quick Setup with Auto-Connect Disabled and disable DHCP in there.
The other thing you have to do is shut off the wireless in the zhone. On the left side click the + beside Wireless and click Basic -> on the screen just take the check mark out of Enable wireless and click Save.
Once you've done those 2 things, unplug the Ethernet cord from the back of the zhone that goes to your PC and connect it to one of the 4 grouped ports on the Linksys. Open a new browser window type 192.168.1.1 and hit Enter -> when the UN and PW box pops up type admin in the PW box and leave the UN blank -> this will take you into the linksys.
If you had to enter a UN and PW in the setup of the zhone you need to pick PPPoE or PPPoA depending on which you used in the zhone. If you didn't have to enter a UN/PW then let it default to Dynamic. Leave this browser open. Plug another Ethernet cable(the one that came with the router) into the back of the zhone and into the WAN port, the one off sorta by itself, of the linksys. Then unplug the power to the linksys for a sec or 3 then plug it back in. Open a browser and see if your home page comes up. If it does you are set if it doesn't unplug the Ethernet cable from the zhone(the one that runs to the Linksys), unplug the Ethernet cable from the router(the one that plugs into your PC) and plug that back into the zhone and you should be able to surf to let us know what happened.
Setting up the wireless on the linksys - just search the net there are tons of guides.
You can also just turn off the wireless in the zhone, turn off DHCP in the Linksys and use the Linksys as a 4 port switch and wireless access point. The choice is yours.
Hope this helps
