      Im having the same problems. I've bought 3 different routers and the
      zipit recognized them, but can't connect. I've spent several hours on
      the phone with multiple tech specialists and it's been very
      frustrating. The zipit works with other open access routers...just
      not when the router are in my house!

      Any helpful tips would be appreciated.

      Thanks!

        You need to give more information, a lot of assumptions can be made as
        to what your configuration is. The way that you are hooking the
        routers up with respect to the DSL / cable modem vs computer could have
        an impact. Depending on your hookup, the operating system on your
        computer may need options turned on...

        With a Linux host, I have to be sure that I have ip_forward turned on
        for my router to access the internet. e.g. echo
        /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward should say "1". The router is buried two
        machines removed from the cable modem: one machine is a firewalled
        workstation which acts as the network router and is connected to the
        cable modem on eth0, eth1 goes to the private network. A second machine
        has eth0 on the private network and eth1 goes to the Netgear WGR614 wifi
        router. My zipits have no trouble accessing the internet.

        The WGR614 is set to have a static IP on my private network for the WAN
        port, and to use a different private network subnet for the wireless LAN
        (and 10baseT side). Nothing on the WAN side is DHCP, the wireless / hub
        side is DHCP.

          Thanks for the reply. I came to the conclusion that it's the modem's
          ethernet port that is faulty (I have always been able to connect to
          the internet with a USB connection). I called my ISP and we ran some
          tests on it. I'm being sent a new modem this week. Hopefully this
          will resolve the issue (I have a feeling it will).

          Thanks again for the response!

            That shouldn't be affecting the DHCP IP sent by a router as they're totally independant of eachother as far as DHCP goes. I get an IP whether my modem is on or not via my router.
