The trouble is the antenna on my Netgear has now become flaky, so I was going to try plugging the O2 one in, but it doesn't even connect to the internet I don't think (internet and broadband lights both green, even with and without a cable though?) and I can't even get my PC to recognise the router as the gateway like my netgear does.
Is this expected that this model of O2 box should work (O2 wireless Box II - unsure of manufacturer date, but dispatched in March 2008). I have tried a safety pin in the reset hole too and this made no difference. I've read on some of the other threads (about dropout connections) that the O2 was more reliable than the black boxes Sky send out, but it may be down to mine being an early version?
I would probably make an effort to ring them up, but I see that the wireless key is only WEP (64 bit) encrytion. I presume this is still regarded as unsecured these days, and I should probably be better off just getting my own router?
