tried to connect to internet but the computer saying cant etc
This is by Ethernet connection.

tried another modem and that works ok with same leads so must be the modem.

It says your connection may be limited on the second modem but it does connect again on ethernet.

Any help please

TalkTalk should work with any router that isn't customised by the ISP such as Sky, usually a Netgear. My brother uses an ancient Alcatel Speed-Touch & gets 7 Meg Bits with TalkTalk.

He lives out in the sticks so WEP security isn't a great issue. I sent him my Belkin N1 Wireless Modem Router that supports WP2 encryption which he is now I think using. I don't need it now as I am on Virgin cable.

adamagain, I'm not exactly sure what the problem is you are having, it might be me not reading it correctly but could you elaborate please?
