Hi, can anyone help. I have a zyxel wireless, and have joined virgin, but I have no idea of how to go about setting up the connections. Can anyone point me in the right direction, or give me any pointers.
Many thanks, Angela

Can you advise on your operating system and also are you going to use Powerline Homeplug?

Open internet explorer and type
click here
in the address bar
A window will open asking for your password. I can't tell you what the default is, but I suspect "admin" (it should be listed in the bumf that came with it)

Under Advanced setup click on WAN halfway down

Then click on WAN setup

Enter your username and password (the ones you use to access virgin - like [email protected]
password

Check "Obtain IP Address automatically" is ticked

Click Apply

The box should then flash its lights for 30 seconds, with the final light (internet) staying on at the end...

Hastily scribbled - hope it helps!
