      Having UPNP disabled on the extension router shouldn't be an issue anyway right, I mean the main router is the one assigning IP addresses and that one also does all the UPNP business correct?

      And yes, the DG934G is the third gen Sky router I think?

      Think so mate. All your doing is turning it into an access point/gateway. Mine works fine apart from the minor hiccup mentioned on this thread

      Re: Connected 2 routers, occasional issue

      Update on this - had upnp turned off on 0.20 as scubbie suggested and I also recrimpt the ethernet cable. Was working well till last night. Wireless connected but no internet access so had to reboot both routers after which it was fine for the rest of the night. This morning again wireless was fine but no internet so I tried to login to 0.1but had no joy but could login to 0.20 so using the diagnostic page tried pinging 0.1 and got 100% packet loss. I check the ethernet cable and both were illuminated so I unplugged the cable from 0.1 and turned it off for a minute then back on and waited for it to settle then plugged the ethernet cable back in and now its working fine again??

      When you did the crimping, which wiring standard did you follow 568-A or 568-B? Or did you use another standard, if so which please?

      Re: Connected 2 routers, occasional issue

      Is your ethernet cable cross over or straight through? I'm not familiar with your specific routers but if the cable is straight through and the router sockets are not auto-sensing then one end of the inter-connector should connect to a designated "up-link" socket. You've checked or at least re-crimped the cable. If there are any spare sockets on the router you could always try using different sockets in case there is an intermittent fault associated with a particular port.

      568-B is arguably the better choice.

      Cross-over wires are required for the Sky routers to the best of my knowledge. Certainly I don't use knowingly use them (I have a few pre-made cables) and when I have repaired my own cables 568-B is the one I use. However most of my Ethernet cables are connected to Switches just now.

      Re: Connected 2 routers, occasional issue

      Thanks for the input guys ill see how it goes and report back. The netgear 834 is quite old now so could be on its way out so I may go back to the supplied router see if it works better. Im certain its that router at fault as everything will connect fine to the other router just the lack of internet being shared

      Just as a heads up. My extension router has been live for three days now and I have no issues with UPNP turned off as the main SKY Hub handles all that business. I'm connected constantly for the best part of the day as well.

      Re: Connected 2 routers, occasional issue

      Still having issues with this, it dropped out the same as the other day so logged into 0.20 and checked the log and it says internet disconnected but this time it would let me ping 0.1. Im going to put the standard router back in later today to see if its the netgear 834 at fault
