As a few of you are aware my knowledge of routers/networks is painfully low, however after the recomendations of SunTzu et.al i have bought an ADSL router, a Netgear DG834G v4, i got this one as i know it's the one Virgin send out, so i know it's compatible, i got it on Friday, set it all up and it was working like a dream, even managed to connect the Wii to it!!
However, this morning i have tried to use the internet and it keeps coming up saying it can't find the host server on every tab i try and open in Firefox, IE says this page cannot be displayed. Under the network settings in the control panel it says that the network is connected and i can access the router settings by typing an ip address into firefox, in those settings it says ADSL status is connected and has been connected for the 40 odd hours since i got it.
I have restarted the PC, switched the router off for 2 minutes, changed the port which the ethernet cable uses, all with no luck!!!
Anybody got any ideas?
Obviously i kept my USB modem and am using that to connect now, so there is no problem with the service ;)
Eternally greatfull for any help you can offer
