It works fine.

Go to the O2 customer forum for specifics as I got my settings from there.

Unfortunately I'm in the office so I can't check.

Try this:

Under the Basic Settings Tab

Does Your Internet Connection Require A Login? = No
Account Name (If Required) = [Blank]
Domain Name (If Required) = [Blank]

Internet IP Address = Get Dynamically From ISP
Domain Name Server (DNS) Address = Get Automatically From ISP

NAT (Network Address Translation) = Enable
Router MAC Address = Use Default Address [I have also tried spoofing my O2 box MAC]

Under ADSL Settings Tab

Multiplexing Method = LLC-BASED
VPI = 0
VCI = 101

Next - try using the OpenDNS server addresses instead of the O2 ones. I find OpenDNS just that little bit faster than O2.

Oh, don't forget to get the latest firmware from Netgear, I think they were up to v14 when I last looked.
