Today was the day.
The shiny new DSL2640R was duly put in place yesterday and the thing now works, slowly, but works.
The best bit is that the wireless bit really is poor.
The coverage is nothing like as good as the Belkin, but what is really bugging me is that my portable can access things like the Internet, network server and even my Belkin USB network hub. But can I access the network printer or my CCTV recorders (network versions) let alone any other 'odd' bits of kit.
The instructions are poor, but the Belkin worked superbly.
Anyone point me in the direction of where to look to solve the wireless problem on the Dlink? The Ethernet is fine, even the portable works fine when I trail a wire across the carpet.
