    Was it brand new and unused or was it used when you got it? Could some security feature be enabled? Try to Reset to factory defaults. On mine the power and DSL lights are steady and the Ethernet light flashes

    problem trying connect Kubuntu 6.10 to internet

    Thanks, arochester.

    I have two BT 205 routers and they both behave in the same way. Both are used (I bought them on eBay)

    Forgive my stupidity, but I don't understand you when you say: 'Try to Reset to factory defaults' as I cannot see a 'Reset' facility. How do I do it?

    Press Advanced. It will ask for your ROUTER username and password (NOT your broadband username and password!) The default router username=admin password=admin. (If somone else has changed the password you have problems...) Go to System. A Reset button should appear. Hit that.

    Start inputing your info again

    Also make sure of your broadband username. We are with Tiscali so the password is not dumdedum it is dumdedum@tiscali.co.uk.

    Thanks, arochester.

    I clicked 'Advanced', entered 'admin' as both username and password, but when I clicked 'System', nothing happened.
