      Still no change as of yet, left the router off overnight, still no ADSL light at all. Really need the internet at this stage because I've got coursework deadline soon and I need some access.

      Thanks, I'll be sure to post if/when the issue gets sorted out. Expecting the new router to come through either tomorrow or the day after, see what that does to help my case.

      If anyone's got any other suggestions or solutions, I'm all ears at this stage.

      The only sensible solution I have would be to purchase a Pay-as-you-go 3G Dongle.

      If you have a laptop, these are useful items to have anyway.

      Theoretically you shouldn't need to put too much credit on.

      Many superstores sell them now, so you could pick one up tonight if you can't wait until the router arrives.

      Cheers, I'll be sure to let you know. Expecting the new router either tomorrow or thursday. Hopefully that does the trick.
      At this stage, I'm open to any more suggestions from anyone with an idea what the issue might be and how I can fix it.

      This will depend on your Mobile and how it's paid for, but you could always consider using it as a Modem.

      You'll need to ideally connect it via the supplied cable, but I know some can share their connection via a WiFi Hot spot that they can create.

      Depending on which phone you have you can either tether the connection with the USB cable.

      Some newer phones such as HTC desire,Iphone 4 etc enable you to create a portal wifi 3g hotspot and would enable you to connect to the phone in pretty much the same way you connect to the sky router

      Recieved the new router this morning, which I am on now. Seems to be working fine without any issue so I'm guessing that that problems been solved

      I can only assume that the noise I heard through the phone line the other day was due to the faulty router interfering with the line. Looking back it did sound a lot like the old dial-up tones.

      Thanks to everyone for the help and suggestions.

      It could have been a dodgy PSU from the old modem causing REIN

      Doesn't really matter now as long as it got sorted
