      I wonder if your line has been switched over to MER from PPPoA. Some are finding that although they are still able to connect with PPPoA they have to spoof the MAC address to get a non Sky router to connect. Although you have tried your Sky routers it is possible they have not received an update to allow them to connect using MER. Have a look in the router Logs of the routers you are using and see if anything is reported there.

      Sorry about the dodgy formating doesnt carry over well.

      Talking about MER, What is it exactly?
      Just a new connection type?
      And if i was using a non sky router woyld it be compatible?

      Thanks
