Huawei Echolife HG520s - Tried everything

  slimbiggins 02:01 30 Jul 2009

Hi, a friend of mine recently got a new router from talk talk that he has been having problems with.
He gave me his laptop and router so I could configure it for him but I have tried everything and still
not found a solution. The problem is that although I can connect to the router, I can't actually
connect to the internet (meaning I can't open any web pages). I know the laptop isn't the problem
because I successfully connected it to my BT Homehub and it worked fine. I also tried the installation
cd that came with the router, which just kept failing when trying to configure the router.

Any suggestions?
