    Have you tested with a unused fixed ip instead? Then try to ping a local device.

    Did you set the gateway and DNS servers when you gave it a static IP?

    I forgot about the gateway but the web does work in that manner.

    However the speed of the connection is much less then it has ever been. Plus the update tool does not seem to be working.

    Are you using pppoe? I have ADSL and I use pppoe, so maybe thats your problem? If you need to use it ( Your ISP should have said so on their website or in the manual that usually comes whith that "starteskit" ) I would recomend you to use rp-pppoe. www.roaringpenguin.com/pppoe
