I'm looking for a little help and/or advice
Having recently received my router the other day I have managed to get it up and running first time with out any trouble! However for my own stupid personal ethics of trying to keep my desk as tidy as possible I unplugged the power supply to move the router when it was reconnected it refused to work for me any more and only had the wireless and power lights illuminated! The only method I could find to get it to work again was to uninstall the software and start from scratch installing it again. Then it happened again last night after a power failure!
Has anyone else experience this or have any advice or helpful tips (other than not to unplug it again!) that may help me. I havenít contacted sky as of yet but thought I would pick the brains of this forum in the mean time!

I am constantly having to unplug my router to reset it (the reset button doesnt work!!!). I dont have any problems with the service coming back up apart from it usually taking a few minutes for the router to aquire an IP Address.
Also, I switch the power off to my PC, router and peripherals off every night.
I'd suspect that maybe you have a faulty router and that you should contact Sky support.

I thought that may have been the case! Its just strange that it works (all be it a bit slow at times which seems to be a common theme) when the software is reinstalled.

Archi, as and when you acquire a new router, I think the recent thread that I've posted on this board may come in handy to you in terms of not turning the power off every time you've finished using your router.GP may be interested as well.
