[HELP] E2000 getting DNS server not responding

I've just hooked up my E2000 which was running off of my previous Cable High speed no problems. At my new place I've hooked up the Thomson ST516 to the E2000 and then wanting to run an ethernet line to a computer down the hall and then wireless to the pc in the same room.

If I hook up the pc in the same room directly to the ST516 I get a connection. But if I hook up the ST516 to the Yellow Port of the E2000 and then plug in the ethernet for the hallway room and either wirelessly or via an ethernet cable, I am unable to get any connection at all. It just say's "DNS server not responding" after running Cisco Connect.

Probably better to ask in the Linksys forum... but for starters what DNS servers are you being fed when
the ST516 is connected to the E2000?

Yeah, I should post this in the Linksys forum...Saw the software saying Cisco Connect and forgot it's a linksys router...DUH!

Well I did ipconfig /all with everything hooked up and got these for settings:

IPv4 Address. . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.113(Preferred)
Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.1
DHCP Server . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.1
DNS Servers . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.1

So who / what device is 192.168.1.1? The E2000 or the ST516? And do either of those devices have
a non RFC1918 address for DNS?

For chuckles, I'd also see if a DNS server like 4.2.2.2 or 8.8.8.8 is reachable via ping or traceroute.
