Hi there all,

I have TalkTalk wireless modem/router package that i bought some months ago, (oh no i hear you cry) that's been sitting in the back of my cupboard. (best place for it as far as i'm concerned!)

You see I tried to set it up when i first got it, but i got so frustrated with it, it's been sitting in the cupboard ever since.

I tried again yesterday evening, but ran into all sorts of problems. I spoke to several TT "technical advisors" (yes i actually got through) in the process and i use that term very loosely.

To cut a very long evening short, after about the 4th phone call they told me that i needed to get my Philips (?) SNA5630NS/05 modem router configured.

They suggested i call the help line number on the bottom of the router box.

Now here's the good bit. You call the number and are presented with a message from TT saying "This line is no longer in use and TT no longer supply this product" along with a TT Tech help support line number.

We all no how far you get (or not) when you call TT don't we! It was like i was caught in a never ending loop of the TT theme tune, recorded messages, and far away people reading off of pre typed sheets.

I did get some useful info though. One of the TT support Techs gave me a number to call which turned out to be Geek Squad.

I explained my problem to one of their guy's and he said unfortunately they only deal with the new TT modem/router and not my model. However he did tell me that he was speaking to a TT employee a day or two ago, and was told that the reason TT don't offer support any longer for my router is because the makers Philips (?), suddenly withdrew their support?

Probably because they didn't want to be associated with such a crap company.

Anyhow i'm now stuck with it and can't get it to work.

Can any of you wonderful people out there help at all or is it back to the cupboard once again for the little blighter?

Regards, Ben.

By the way, the reason i'm trying to set it up again is because I've been advised to, to free up some bandwidth, needed to get a blue tooth dongle to work.

While it was very nice reading this interesting story, but you provided zero amount of information regarding the technical problem that you are dealing with. Such as how your system is setup what the problem is, what you have done to solve it, etc. Please please provide more information about the nature of the problem.

Hi Ben
well after reading all these things which was of really no use...would really request you if you could send us some details regardin how have you connected it and what are the status of the lights...
well would also like to inform you that

The Micro filter shld be plugged into the master socket directly and there shld be no skybox or fax machine or extension cable plugged into the master socket...

Next step wld be..If you have plugged it with ethernet or usb cable...Just unplug it frm the back of the computer...Then turn off the router and then turn off the computer..After a minute
Turn on ur router..when you see some light steady on it(i cant explain you which all light m talkin bout) it, then plug in back the ethernet/usb cable...and at last turn on ur computer...

Next wld request you before doing all this try to visit this website from ur frnds house which wld really help you in configuring ur router properly..

If you have ny further issues...plz post back the issue...

I am there to help you out
