 Subject:  WAN has no link light at one location, but works at home

I have a strange problem.
My box is a wrap model and it works fine at home.
My verizon isp gives me a non-static ip address and I have a cheap 
belkin router connected to that so I don't have to fuss with the pppoe 
user and password all the time.
The local side of the router allows static ip addresses on the subnet of
Like I said, the m0n0wall 1.22 works fine here.
I only have one wan rule that allows https web gui access.
Proto      Source      Port      Destination            Port            
 TCP       *               *        WAN address       443 (HTTPS)
And the lan rule is
Proto      Source      Port      Destination            
Port                       Description
 *       LAN net             *           *                        *

I found this doc:

Which suggests a bad ethernet port, but it works here at home before and 
after I tried it on a static dsl modem.

I do not have a link light when connecting to the static dsl modem, but 
if I connect the linksys wireless router that was there, it has a link 
light and internet.
At home here I have a link light and internet. In fact I am using the 
m0n0wall as my gateway right now.

Any suggestions?
