Have recently moved house ( same telephone number) but changed broadband provider to Orange. Pack arrived today and installed with no problems using the supplied modem. prior to moving house i was using a Belkin ADSL Wireless Router and I would now like to use this with orange broadband. I connected it up today and, although receiving a good signal it did not connect to orange. Could you tell me how to change to the router again. As i said it was previously set up and working with security settings etc. I seem to think I will have to change settings somewhere to change from the supplied modem to the wireless router. Would appreciate any help.

Go into Start then Run and type cmd. When the command line window opens type ipconfig /release and restart your computer This should cause your computer to pull a new IP address from the modem.
If you go into the Belkin setup page there should be a feature to disable the modem and able you to use just the router\switch\wireless features.

oh man, going back to my DSL support days. There are some settings in the modem that you might have to change for it to work properly. The type of connection could have change (PPPoE, PPPoA, ATM), and then there are some other settings that could have to be changed. As much as we'd like to help you here, I'd give the ISP a call, after all, you are paying them to support you :thumbsup:
