we're on BT Business broadband, which came with a BT2700HGV router. We've had to replace that (for various reasons) with a bog-standard new Netgear DG834. I've used this router once on another line (IDnet broadband) and it worked fine. However, I can't get it to work on the BT line.
The Netgear's Setup Wizard never completes, and manually entering the username and password only gets me:
Sat, 2000-01-01 23:58:52 - Initialize LCP.
Sat, 2000-01-01 23:58:52 - LCP is allowed to come up.
Sat, 2000-01-01 23:58:55 - CHAP authentication failed
Sat, 2000-01-01 23:58:55 - LCP down.
However, I do get an IP when using the test username bt_test@startup_domain. I've noted that the DSL speed is much lower again than on the 2Wire (4900 kbps). The Netgear's statistics say this:
ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
Connection Speed 4947 kbps 1055 kbps
Line Attenuation 47.0 db 25.6 db
Noise Margin 8.9 db 6.0 db
I've tried using the BT's as well as the Netgear's bundled microfilter. Any other ideas? Thanks.
