Sharing broadband with 3Com Router

  jacob.metcalfe 09:46 23 Aug 2005

I have a 3Com OfficeConnect ADSL Router/Modem and am trying to set up to work with UkOnline broadband. Went through configuring everything and got it to connect to the broadband (The online light is on) and to connect to my USB Wireless reciever (Good signal strength etc.). The problem I have is that although everything seems to be fine with the connections, when I try to use the net, it does not use the wireless network but instead trys to use a dial up which is unavailable (If you disable dialing up it will not do anything). I can connect to other wireless routers so think it must be a config error on mine, any ideas?

Have you got the proxy settings configured and made a new connection using the wizard, very similar to making a dial up connection, enter hostname, password etc

Managed to sort it. Router wasnt picking up DNS settings from the ISP for some reason. Entering them manually has fixed it. Thanks for your reply anyway.
