connected to the internet but no access

I'm connected to the internet with a bullet M2 and when I connect directly I have internet access. When I connect my linksys 160n router and plug in my computer I show a connection but can't access the internet. I can ping the bullet and my computer from the router and get a response. I've also borrower a wrt54g router from a friend and have the same problem, The bullet is in bridge mode. My computer is running xp pro.

Firstly, is the computer getting its correct IP address from the Router? If it is, go into the Router's configuration pages and check in the "Status" page whether the Router has got its WAN IP address from the ISP.

If you are able to access the router's Status page, then the PC must have a correct IP address from the router. On the Status page, you should see a WAN IP Address, which is the Wide Area Network or Internet address that the ISP has allocated. Post back with that address.

As that's a Local Area Network (LAN) address, not an Internet address, is that actually the address the router gets from the "Bullet M2" as its WAN (internet) address?

I;ll need to know how to check to see what address the bullet is giving to the router. The address of the bullet is 192.168.1.102. Thank you.
