I have recently purchased a Micronet Wireless ADSL2+ Kit from Maplin. I was told by a friend that configuration should not be a problem as most routers self configue. When I had plugged everything in I visited the congiuration page in Firefox and went to quick start. It then demanded several pieces of information from me regarding my ISP (waitrose.com broadband). These were:
Type of IP address(static, dynamic etc) Encapusulation (PPPoE, PPPoA) Muliplex (VC or LLC) Virtual Circuit ID (VPI & VCI)
And naturally the username and password (don't worry, I know these!)
Could someone please tell me the the correct values or if this if not possible, tell me who I should go to to find out.
It doesn't seem to let me change any of the above information. And it's still not working. I remember once when I was playing around with the settings, under status it said I was connected, which I do not get now. But it didn't actually work with the internet. Is there anyway I can disable the built in modem and connect it up to my old BT Voyager 210 ADSL router, which only required my username and password and worked without a hitch, first time round and just use the router for my wireless network.
Or is it that I've just bought a sub-standard router?
