  grassmonkey 18:18 05 Sep 2007

I have recently aquired an echolife HG520s. I am currently recieving my internet through Tiscali 2MB Broadband which i connet to via a supplied usb modem. I would like some help to setup my wireless router to connect to tiscali. I need to be able to input my connection setting into the router in order to tell it to connect to tiscali instead of talk talk like it was intended to. Cheers in advance ;)

First you cannot set up a network system via a USB connected modem

Cannot find any information on the echolife HG520s

You need a modem with a Ethernet port does the echolife HG520s have a Ethernet port and do you have a Lan card on your PC

My old modem is a usb modem, the new one i have is a wireless router that connects to my pc via LAN. I need to know how to configure my new modem to connect to tiscali. i can get into the setup for the modem by typing in its ip into firefox i just dont know where to input the tiscali data in order to get it to connect to tiscali.

When you access the router is there a request to the enter User name & password

And have you gone pass this stage and access the main menu??

If not enter: - “admin” for both name & password

Main Menu

If have you have accessed the main menu click on each setting and go through the setting on each page
