Which ADSL Router

I have been with Plusnet about six months, I briefly used the Binatone 500 ADSL Modem. But we have 5 comps in the house, his hers and the three kids.

I purchased an Origo ADSL 8400 Router which I wired in, this is a 4 port device. I quite quickly got all 5 PC's connected up and running.
All went swimmingly for five months until now. The network and internet connection suddenly dropped and try as I might I cannot get it to work.

Two questions?
1 Has anyone else had experience with the Origo ADSL router that could help.
2 If it is as I fear that the router is bust what other ADSL routers are best to connect 5PC's

Power cycle it, ie turn Off for 30 seconds and then back on, if your power is interrupted and the router loooses power then it will crash. then it won't allow access to the web admin nor any connection until you do.

So if your in an area prone to lighting storms or just a bad electricity supply then that could be why. As I know the last 3 days in the highlands there have been power surges and dips causing Breakers to trip in homes up here after a spate of electrical storms.

Do we assume you are using the old Binatone to access the web at this moment ??
If yes, that would rule out a line fault and point to the router.
If no, try it to rule out a line fault.

Can you acces the setup pages of the router and can the other PC's operate over the network ?

Which ADSL Router

A couple of threads related to a dead router on the origo forums which may help:

http://adsltech.com/adsl/enq.htm - If it is less that 12 months old it should be covered by a warranty.

http://adsltech.com/portal/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=8&PN=1 - the first green bit explains another reset method.

You may have better luck if you post a question on the origo forum itself if the above don't help.
