[nSLUG] Static IP woes

I'm setting up a brand new server (running Slackware 10.1), and I
planning on running all kinds of services through it (web, mail, DNS,
etc...). So I told the higher ups that I would need a static IP to
point all of this stuff at, out in the world. They got the static IP
from Eastlink (the ISP for our office), and so far I have yet to be able
to get the numbers to take without cutting access to the rest of the
Internet for my office (including the router itself).
We run a wireless network in our office, the router is a Linksys 2.4
GHz Wireless G (Model#: WRT54G) running the latest Linksys firmware.
The server (Dell PowerEdge SC-1420) is connected with a length of
networking cable to the router. Then a bit of network cable goes from
the router to the cable modem Eastlink supplies (Motorola Surfboard).
Laying in the numbers (I confirmed them already with Eastlink) was a
simple enough task, I even went looking to see if I missed anything (EG:
. No luck however. As soon as the info is put in, we lose the external
connection (the internal LAN remains active.)
We have even tried a different router all together (SMC) and still no
go with the same symptoms.
Has anyone on the list had similar troubles with Eastlink and Static IPs?
