First was the internet light was red even 4 hours after install so I rang Plusnet who manually activated it and it worked.
Second problem was I could not get ethernet to work on the Plusnet router, or do a direct PPPOE connection to pc from the modem to my laptop or desktop(and tried different cables)
Eventually a reboot of the modem fixed the problem and all was fine till a few hours later I decided to move the cable under the carpet and in corners so out of the way instead of straight across the carpet above it and all of the sudden pc keeps reporting cable unplugged , I seemed to sort this with a dab of WD40 and now that issue is gone but still when wired is plugged in I have issues with things like web pages not loading.
I put this here as I think its a modem issue not a plusnet issue or at most its both a modem issue and plusnet router issue.
Seems to be ip address problems.
EDIT whilst I am here does anyone know how to make the pc recognise the wired and wireless connection as same name as renamed the plusnet connection to one of my own choice but ethernet shows plusnetwirelessxxxxxx on it still, I know I can change it in network settings but as far as the pc is concerned its 2 different networks and lists them as such.
