[link to this post]
 
Hi, Im new to this site so not really sure im posting under the right section. Anyways Ive got an Orange Brightbox router but my internet provider is Tesco, and I was wondering if and how I can use this router with my current internet.

Thanks for any help with this.

Kind Regards.

If the router allows you to enter a different ADSL username and password then should be OK.

One of the following links (which only work on your LAN)
http://192.168.1.1/u132xzp32aai.htm
http://192.168.1.1/xc324m12sdlo.htm
http://192.168.1.1/yds32u872vld.htm
http://192.168.1.1/z983erv3210ba.htm

Should take you to a page where you can change the login details.

You don't need those links; most of which are useless.

You can get to the usual ADSL Settings on the normal Web GUI pages.

@OP: Yes, Brightbox is a normal type of router. It is not locked to Orange, just the look-and-feel is tailored for Orange, and can be used on any ISP's ADSL connection.

Why not? Brightbox is a good performing general purpose router.

You always have the choice of using ISP supplied one or getting/using your own.

Up to once-a-day discons shouldn't be a problem.

Anyway you can't ascribe that to the router; it could just as well be the connection or BT's servers.

Get hold of another router and see if it still does it. If not, then you can blame the BrightBox.
