I have one of those eTec modem/routers - was cheap and no problems with it so far.

Very easy to setup, what problems are you having?

I can show you my setup page if it helps:

Not sure if this is the type of information you want, but this is my setup page for the WAN

how come your encapsulation is set on PPPoE LLC mine isnt and when i tried your setting i cannont connect to the net, the problems im having are dropped connection for a second at most every now and then, hissing on my phone while using or dialing, and when i frist connect it pops up saying connected at 10Mb per sec then another popup saying connected at 100Mbps, why?
oh and sometimes when i open a web page i get nothing or wait ages, usually having to refresh the page, and when opening microsoft outlook it just hags then says cant connect to server contact ISP. :?:
last thig is ive tried to open a port for peer2peer but when i test the port it still says closed, do you know how to portforward, who do i contact for support theres no contact address with the router.

the PPLOC i was told by plus.net tech
Port forwarding is on virtual server
the 10/100mb might be either NIC Speed or it's set up wrong on the PC - cant remember where to find the setting Sad
