Broadband Router - HELP!

  Muckleface 22:53 17 Jun 2003

I have NTL Broadband 600k through the modem supplied by NTL.

Ive recently got a second PC so I bought this router...

click here seems to be VERY tempermental! I can get internet connection on both PCs but then it stops for no reason!? The only way I can get it going agin is by diconnecting the power from the router, then reconnecting the power and pressing the reset button on the back! This would only be mildly irrating if the router wasnt TWO FLOORS away!!!

Ive checked the configuration and been throught the manual (not that theres much info in it) hundreds of times and asked around on the net but no-one seems to know whats happening!?

PLEASE can ANYONE offer ANY advice cos this is seriously driving me insane!!!

Ok, then can anyone reccomend a router that can be used with an ntl 600k broadband modem?

Any of the Netgear range - see

I use the FR114P, because I like the built-in print server and 'high-level' firewall.

You could try the DLink DI604 or the Belkin (this is supposed to be the best if you also have an XBox)

I use the same MENTOR router, also with ntl 150k, the router works ok with my setup.
I know this may not help you, but it lets you know the router compatible with NTL.

Hi, You seem to be losing your IP address from NTL or your lease time is set veeeeerrrryyyy low. Have a chat with an NTL engineer (report it as a fault) I use a D Link DI-604 and it has never caused me any heartaches. Cheers, Bill

There is a review of several broadband routers in the August 2003 (current issue) of PC PRO magazine.

I managed to contact another purchaser through the website where I bought the router, he was having the same porblems.

He advised me he had found the website of the manufacturer so I sent an email and got a reply with a firmware update!

Its now been connected fsince midday without one disconnection!
