Hi Ian,

I have a Netgear DG814 and have seen something like this before and if
uklinux is anything like bt broadband you will need to change the VPI
and VCI to:
VCI = 38
VPI = 0
before the router will be able to attain a dhcp address (if uklinux
supports this).

I know Netgear sets their routers to different default values.

Then its just a case of making sure that you have entered your username
and password into the router, and setting all your PCs
to use DHCP from the router (dont forget to check if this is enabled, it
should be by default).
