Not that anyone's been interested & who can blame them with such a ridiculous post (probably more of them to follow) but for anyone else's info, things partly resolved as follows. Scoured the net & found a page on upgrading the firmware on the router. Did so in trepidation, it went ok, then it opened an idiot friendly interface, so I've got it working as a wired modem. Next will be to sus out the wireless bit(god help me) Hopefully that too will now be straight forward. Before the whole thing was unintelligable, but I've also downloaded an easy set up file, that'll hopefully do what it says on the lable. My advice - beware 2nd hand bargin Origo routers!!!
