Here is what I have done so far:
1) For testing purposes, I stopped the firewall on linux.
2) I issued "ifconfig eth0 188.8.131.52".
3) I was able to ping the Linksys router.
4) I was able to ping the other box on the network.
5) I was able to ping the linux box from the other box.
6) When I tried to access the router via the web browser I get
"The document contains no data".
The message comes up after about 1 1/2 minute of waiting.
