      Here are the settings that I have found on this forum try these:

      Transfer mode: ADSL(PCM
      ADSL mode: ADSL2+
      Multiplexing: VC based
      VPI:0
      VCI:38
      Does internet require a connection: Yes
      Internet service provider: PPPOA
      Loggin details: got from Wireshark
      Internet IP address:Get dynamically from ISP
      DNS: Get from ISP
      Router Mac address: used Broadband port Mac address of sky hub.

      That firmware is an old one, go to the Netgear website download the up to date version at https://www.netgear.com/support/product/D7800#download

      Then plug the Netgear D7800 via a Ethernet lead into your computer and update the modem that way.

      Hope this Help you get it connected to the internet.

      Regards Mike

      Have you tried using your old dsl cable on it? if yes maybe the socket is duff. I did noticed on my Netgear D7800 that the dsl socket was not sitting flat it was raised a bit so I pushed it down a bit.

      Hope this Help you get it connected to the internet.
