Seems my gigabyte GN-BR01G router will NEVER work!

Hi all,
Here goes,

Been trying to get the folowing working since Christmas and no joy!

Tesco Broadband
Gigabyte GN-BR01G router
D-Link DSL-300G+ modem

I have a pc and laptop and want to share the internet connection. Defo no problems with modem, problems only start when router is introduced to the system. No problems with the laptop - have tested by connecting to various other wireless networks. I'm trying just to get router into the system and get internet access on PC before trying the laptop. Although I do know that the laptop can see the network and if I try to connect it just continually displays the "connecting" message. Anyway if I add the router to the system now, it will automatically detect a dynamic ISP configuation. It seems to run through auto setup quite easily. Sometimes I can even get internet access once, but if I try after that I get nothing.

Had a quick look at the router log (on the configuration page - click here) at this point and see the following:

"cannot rebind IP - rediscover"

Is this anything to with the fact that I get a different IP each time from Tesco?

I have tried changing the router WAN MAC address to that of my PC, but that hasn't helped.

Any ideas?

Oh yes, had a look at the event viewer and get all these errors warnings - are they anything to do with the problem?Event Type: Error

Any help will be greatly appriciated, as I'm really stuck now and a bit of a novice and have had no replies from GIGABYTE technical help.
