    I recently bought an ADSL2MUE modem in preparation for connecting it to a WRT54G to set up a wireless network in my new student accomodation.

    The power, dsl and ethernet lights are all solid green but the internet flashes red. When I hit the PPP Login Connect button the page refreshes and stays "not connected". I am connecting over pppoa and have quintuple checked all the settings given to me by my ISP. I have made sure I did the correct sequence of shutting down the modem as mentioned by Linksys tech support but it did nothing. I have also tried setting the modem to bridged mode and sticking it into the router and letting that try and connect but it said it "could not get the IP from the server".

    My ISP told me that my network settings shouldn't matter and that I should keep them set to automatic, is this correct? If there is any thing else that I can try that might the magic happen?

    I am with Plusnet as my ISP and am running Win2k. Thanks for your time.

    I suggest you to test your modem on an other line (friend, neighbour, etc.). If it goes wrong, change it...
