      got it installed today. the adsl username does not work. it does not want to provide a dchp lease.

      I am afraid we will have to look at other alternatives. im going to have a play around this evening with wireshark to see if i can extract the details that way and report back.

      A bit strange if it works with the Billion and not with your Netgear. Did you connect the Sky Hub first? If so did you allow sufficient time for its lease to expire before connecting the Netgear? From what I have read here it can take up to an hour for a new router to connect.
