installing router

I have been sent a new router, a D-Link DSL-2680 by Talk Talk to replace the out of date Sagem modem I was using on my Advent 7108 laptop with XP but it will not connect to my server. I have tried another new router of the same type but that does not work either. Any suggestions please? Thanks.

Have you accessed the router when connected by ethernet cable to setup?

Yes. I set it up as described in their booklet for wired use.

Then I think you must have the wrong username or password. If you call the helpline from the TT phone, you will get a recorded message giving you both. Username is normally your full phone number then @talktalk.net.

Have you got a filter on the line connection to the router?

I had a sililar problem with a Belkin. My ISP user name and password was different from the e Mail ie [email protected] and not [email protected]; My ISP (Pipex /Talk Talk) were helpful in talking me through it on the phone.

I have used the same route that john bunyan used. Contact TT support, they will talk you through it, in an easy to understand way. If they cannot connect, then they will take it from there.

heehee, so you did onthelimit1. I am getting near my 'sell by' date. Though I've a few years left (I hope) before my 'use by' ;)

Woodman2, have you sorted it out yet?
