I purchased a vigor 120 and a netgear wnr 2200 off ebay last week. The plan was to replace my thomson speedtouch router with these in hope to get a better connection speed and setup but so far its not going so well.
To begin with i have the vigor 120 plugged into a adsl filter which is connected to my master socket and the wnr 2200 is then connected to the vigor 120 by ethernet. This is all correct as far as i can tell, i can access the wnr admin by ip as expected so no problems here.
The problem is i cant get an internet connection through either, the netgear refuses to see my internet. I've tried disconnecting the netgear and trying to establish a connection with just the vigor but i couldnt get that to work either. Presumably its not supposed to as its a modem and doesnt store any usernames / passwords to my knowledge.
I've tried various settings in the vigor backend but i dont really know what im doing in there. My ISP is AOL (UK) which was supposedly taken over by talktalk and im on an old ADSL (G.DMT) line. I've always input my settings as PPOE so im presuming this is still correct for the vigor. I did try some settings found for bebroadband but those didnt work either.
I'm not quite sure what to do now, is the vigor / netgear even compatible with my isp ? Do i just have the wrong settings ? I'm so confused :-/.
Thanks for any input.
