      Angry TD-W8968 issues



      I have the above router which i bought yesterday, as my netgear router wont work.
      I have tried countless times to connect to sky bb unlimited, but keep hitting a wall.

      I have input all the correct settings
      VPI/VCI 0/38 etc.
      VC based
      Sky router says I am on PPPoA so used install@o2broadband.co.uk and PW install.

      It syncs correctly and shows status as showtime (good) and connection as up.
      Now for the really annoying bit!!

      I can not connect to any websites. If i use an ip address it will connect and show the site, which suggests that DNS is not working. BUT, as soon as i reconnect the SR101 it all works fine.

      This is really peeing me off as the SR101 is crap. I want to use different DNS servers and be able to set other things up as I want them.

      I also have a netgear DM111P modem which works. Well until earlier this evening
      Any ideas guys?

      Get the username and password for your own router and use them instead of the generic one you are using. There are instructions on getting the details in the Passwords section.

      Thanks for the reply isitme,

      Already tried that too with the same result.
      I just set it up as an access point for now which is working well, although id much prefer to have just one router working.
      I used wireshark etc.
