      Belkin Play Max N600 HD

      I have just changed my router to the above mentioned Belkin one.
      I have a non Sky router already so i am familiar with the set up process.
      I tried for hours last night and failed to get an internet connection.
      I inserted my sky user name, and password in the appropriate place but to no avail.
      Am i missing something or forgetting to do something?
      The (relevant) connection types available on the Belkin are PPoA and PPoE. I tried entering the details on both and still no good.
      I did get an intermittent connection for a while but then nothing.
      Can anyone help please?

      You probably are, but without know what you have done, no one can say what that is.

      The settings for a non-Sky router are -
      Encapsulation.....PPPoA
      VCI.........................38
      VPI..........................0
      Multiplexing ..........VC
      MTU.......................1500

      Plus of course, your username and password.
      Make sure you save all the changes

      Thanks for the info. I did use those settings.
      Finally got it to work (after changing nothing).
      It is absolute pants. Connection speed is diabolical.
      Put my existing dlink back on and it went back to normal.
      I have sent the Belkin router back.
      What is the "new" sky router like?
      Does it support multiple open NAT (for xboxes)
      Is a dual channel one available?
