    I know the feeling, been there done that. Which ISP do you use? Have you checked D-Link's website to see if it's compatible? AOL for example only support certain routers, but bad luck if you use AOL anyway.

    Have you asked your ISP for the correct VPI/VCI settings and so on?

    What on earth? As far as I was aware, they had to. Have a scan through their Terms & conditions and make a fuss.
