I've read through many posts but unfortunately none fully answer my question.
Here is the situation.
I currently have broadband internet from NTL via the STB. A friend was kind enough to buy me a Netgear DG834GT ADSL router for christmas so that I can have the internet connection wireless from the STB in the living room to my PC in the backroom.
On reading posts from others it appears that I do not have the ideal router due to the STB being my modem. Furthermore, my friend does not have the receipt to change the router.
In essence my question is whether or not there is a way round buying a new router or changing my internet connection?
I have tried plugging the RJ11 plug into the RJ45 socket on the STB, also plugging the STB direct to one of the switch ports all to no avail.
Thanks in advance for any help.
