Broadband Router Query

  BLUELEN 22:47 13 Oct 2006

Has anyone installed a SKYbroadband router and if so did the internet connection icon flash amber until it was activated. I ask as I have just installed the router and the SKY software on my father's PC but although the power and port 1 light up the internet connection is blank. I have checked all the connections and all appears ok. Just wondering if I should be seeing the amber light as I know I did when I was waiting for my broadband modem to be activated. Thanks

My Netgear DG834 router flashes until connected, suggest that you might try for answers by Googling

Are you connecting through an extension?

This happened to me a couple of days ago so I connected the router directly to the master socket rather than an extension and got a signal, so my extension wiring was at fault.

Connecting directly through a rj11 to rj11 line.
After googling have found various sites with forums with some horror stories from a couple of months ago so I hope the teething problems have been sorted by now ( one said that SKY had no email servers!).

├četa Thanks for number.
