I have installed Xandos3 (WinXPis the same disk) but it will not work with my Alcatel USB modem. I bought a Prestige 650H router and this does talk to my computer. However, to connect to the internet, I need to which encapsulation is used, multiplex data etc. Besides not knowing what they mean, what must do I do to obtain them ? The compact guide says I must ask my ISP - how do I do that ? I would be very grateful for some help. I am with BTinternet.
For m73john, Many thanks for your advice, I tried your settings - to no avail - then tried every possible combination of types of encapulation and multiplex possible = still to no avail. Must be incorrect elsewere. The router has a self testing mode (ping etc.) it's these that fail.
Sorry to hear that, perhaps if you post the settings displayed under WAN information when you get to the last screen on the set-up wizard I may spot something (DON`T post your User Name and Password for obvious reasons - we`ll assume you have these correctly entered).
I`ve had a look at the manual for this router and didn`t notice anything particularly unusual so it should be ok with BT.
