Not per se, but the Linksys router is connected to a Direcway satellite
internet modem. I've connected to these before with no problems.

I tried both. I think it's odd that the gateway/router address is
192.168.1.1, while its DHCP range is 192.168.1.100 - 192.168.1.149. That
means it assigns its clients an address range to which itself does not
belong. How can it then route a client's request back to the client?
