Router stopped working
Yesterday I restarted my Sky router and it hasn't connected since. Iíve contacted sky and they ran some tests and said that there were no problems.
After registering on this part of the forum to get my user name and password off my sky router I tried my connection on two different routersÖ.
First off: D-Link DSL-G604T ADSL Wireless router
Connection Status Connected
Upstream Rate (Kbps) 768
Downstream Rate (Kbps) 8064
US Margin 12
DS Margin 14
LOS Errors 0
DS Line Attenuation 12
US Line Attenuation 11
Path Mode Interleaved
No problems with this router. Everything working fine.
Next I tried: Netgear DG834G (aka DG834Gv1 / latest firmware)
No such luck! I set the settings the same as the D-link but it doesnít connect. Iíve also tried two different firmware versions.
Can anyone advise me on what seams to be happening here? It seams it might be a setting within the Netgear routers but I cant find anything

if i were i would either get sky to send you a new router or use your D-Link DSL-G604T

The D-Link router is ADSL 1 so its only 8MB so its a waste.
Do netgear routers have a lower tolorance to line attenuation and line noise?
Just a thought.....

Just a few things to add...
When i was with my previous ISP (tiscali 2MB) i used a Belkin 54g router.
I tryed a netgear DG834G router on that connection but it did not work.
I then tryed the netgear router on a BT internet line at my sisters house (a few towns away) and it worked fine.
So now back to my Sky connection....
Both my netgear DG834G and now the Sky DG834GT router do not work on my connection but the D-link i am using does.

I am now using earthwormjim's firmware on my sky router (forces ADSL1) and its working. It seams that my line isnt liking ADSL2 although i was running it for about a month with speeds of 10mb DS
Next thing to try i think is another brand ADSL2 router. maybe a linksys...

Is there a chance that Sky changed my line to ADSL1 so therefore i cant get my line working with ADSL2 ?
