Well 8 days after activation my router arrived. Turned out to be a Dlink DSL-2640S ,with 2.04 firmware.

I immediately attempted to do a recovery to go back to 1.07. What fun that was.

The IP of the router is , fine. The recovery utility finds it OK but reconfigures the network card to meaning that it then can't find the router.

So I thought change the router to but then the recovery utility can't find it initially.

Finished up downgrading from within the router itself which went fine.

Got my username & password , entered that into my Netgear DGN2000 & away we went.
