D-Link DSL200 ADSL router, OSX and USB 2.0

  Production ed 13:10 21 Nov 2006

I use Mac OSX on a G4 PowerBook, and a D-Link DSL-200 router on a BT line administered by Pipex. It worked absolutely fine at my previous address, but the new account on the old equipment barely works at all. Initially it connects - slowly - but then it won't ever allow me to browse to a second site and, in effect, crashes (although the router stays alight, and as far as Pipex and BT are concerned, I'm still online). Whichever browser I use freezes, and then Internet Connect gives me the message: 'The connection was terminated by the remote site. Please try again'. When I try again it fails to connect saying: 'Could not negotiate a connection with the remote PPP server. Please verify settings and try again.' BT have checked the line to exhaustion, and found no problem. There are no firmware or driver updates, and my PowerBook works fine when connected to the network at work. Is it possible that the fact that this router uses a USB2.0 connection is to blame? I don't want to shell out for a new ADSL wireless or ethernet modem, only to find that I have the same problem. Any ideas?

Have you tried reinstalling the D-Link software?

Yes. I downloaded it from the D-Link site, and (for good measure) I also reinstalled from the original disc.
