Woodwell thanks but it is not a router problem the router works on this pc fine i have spent hours on the phone to tech support to no avail i would prefer to do this from scratch without tt software is this possible

Did you turn the firewall off and then enter 192 etc.?

Haven't got this router and not with TalkTalk so will wait for someone else.

Click Start, click Run, type Firewall.cpl, and then click OK.
2. On the General tab, click Off (not recommended), and then click OK.
