Thank you both for the input but I finally managed to sort out the problem after multiple setting combo. Seems like it was down to Modulation setting which was odd since I ran with both before and failed. Well next stop is DD-WRT xD
I had a Buffalo WBMR-HP-GNV2 - very temperamental!
In reply to a post
Buffalo ADSL routers tend to take longer to connect. Leave it for at least 5 min. and then double check. Also, post syslog from the router's menu to find out why it's not connecting.
I note that Demon offers a static IP address - are you selecting the relevant option in the router's config?
PS I got rid of my Buffalo as it constantly disconnected.
I did noticed the problem with WBMR-HP-GNV2 taking long time to connect while I search for a solution regarding my problem. It is a strange problem but seems to only affect the GNV2.
Yea Demon uses static IP for HomeOffice/Business indeed but it is username assigned, so no need to input. There is no way of setting that anyway within the web interface for both Buffalo and Linksys.
I have a Buffalo router and find it excellent. However any attempt to set it up manually fails dismally. The setup wizard works without fail, needing only the ISP username and password to be input.
[Mystified]. But happy.
I did some searches before decided to get Buffalo and I heard a lot of good things about it. I have WZR-HP-G300NH at work and the signal is really good, plus the VPN server is a bonus when I need access outside UK.
