i am looking for some advice on third party router setup, i am with bt and using their homehub i just connect up and its fine, but when i swap over to my d-link dir 615 wireless router i cant get any internet and when i plug in the adsl cable it cuts off the phone line ?

Why do you need to change router?

Set up should be from phone socket - filter - adsl to d link router.
Ensure there is a filter on all other phone devices in the house.
To set up the d link you will need your bt username and password - to find this - whilst you still have your bt home hub connected open IE or other browser type in and look for set up details - you may need username and password to access router - usually admin and password 0r the password is on the hub
You may have this info in an e-mail or letter as well.

Connect the d link and access the set up page and enter your bt details.
