Hi, the low power wireless problem you have is it with the Orange supplied Netgear DGN1000 router?

http://www.netgear.co.uk/home/products/wirelessroute...

Orange settings for any ADSL2+ router all you need is…

ATM Circuit Identifier: VPI:0 / VCI:38
ATM Encapsulation: VC-Mux
Connection Type: PPPoA
Username:
Password:
MTU 1492

Orange (SMPF) LLU 20 Meg. Sync 11864 Kbps Downstream, 1157 Kbps Upstream.
3Com 3CRWDR101A-75 ADSL2/2+ router
Netgear DGN1000 ADSL2+ wireless N 150 Router supplied by Orange

You can't! The O2 box is hard-coded for the O2 connection parameters only.

1999: Freeserve 48K Dial-Up => 2005: Wanadoo 1 Meg BB => 2007: Orange 2 Meg BB => 2008: Orange 8 Meg LLU BB => 2010: Orange 16 Meg LLU BB

yes that s the one but i don't think is very good, i agree with your configuration but i can't do much if the router is already set up for different provider unless i can flash it or something but dont know how ;-(

Hi, set the Netgear DGN1000 router wireless to 802.11g only and channel 9 see if that improves it.

All I could find on the O2 router; but it does not allow you to unlock the router. frown

login = SuperUser
password = O2Br0ad64nd

ID: SuperUser (the ID is CASE SENSITIVE, ie with S and U in capitals)
Password: O2Br0ad64nd (ie with digits 2064, the first O & B being capital letters)


Experiment: try to configure the O2 router as the wireless access point.

It is a wireless access point - does what it says on the tin, takes an ethernet network and provides wireless access to it.

e.g. http://www.broadbandbuyer.co.uk/Shop/ShopSearch.asp?...

It does not create a secondary network which is what routers do
