The ip address (10.1.1.10 above) is that of your computer - or more
exactly of that particular interface: ethernet?
Some sites claim the above ipconfig output indicates my router ip
10.1.1.1, and yet other sites claim it is 10.1.1.10.
If you had run that command *on the router/modem*, then indeed it would
suggest that was the address (of one of its interfaces). But you ran it
on your computer, so it is telling about that.
suggested my router ip number should be 192.168.15.1.
Above 192.168... seems weird unless it is the factory default
setting for your router/modem.
Thanks for the response ael.
My unsuccessful efforts to create NAT Rule Entries for the modem was
my feeble attempt to follow the Ekiga-behind-a-NAT-router
instructions on the wiki. These rules were manipulated by entering
the modem's Admin. Panel through a browser via 'http://10.1.1.1'.
So that confirms that the router/modem has the local interface
bound to 10.1.1.1.
The cmd.exe/ipconfig output on XP showed a 'Gateway Address' and 'IP

a terminal window on ubuntu, the modem lights do flash, and the
output in the terminal window indicates an interaction with the
modem. The modem lights also flash when I ping the 'IP Address' of
10.1.1.10. Trying to ping other ip numbers results in 'Destination
All just what is expected: the router/local LAN port is 10.1.1.1 .
If I point my browser to the IP Address of 10.1.1.10 I get a 'Failed

You are pointing back at yourself, and presumably you are not running

Panel and manipulate settings. I had to place the modem in 'bridging
mode' in order to get access to the outside world. My computer is
the only computer connected to the modem.
I suspect that "bridging mode" is your whole problem. But I may be
wrong. Can others comment?
The following output is produced when I type 'route' in a terminal
window on ubuntu:
Kernel IP routing table
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref
link-local * 255.255.0.0 U 1000
0 0 eth0
10.0.0.0 * 255.0.0.0 U 1
0 0 eth0
default 10.1.1.1 0.0.0.0 UG 0
0 0 eth0
That just confirms what I said above. You might want to look at
ipconfig eth0 as well, just for interest. Again, you may need to be
root (sudo, etc).
I hope the above brings me closer to finding a solution.
As I say, I suspect that you should not be using bridging mode...
