It's an iiNet Bob.

The product was developed inhouse by iiNet. My understanding is they are made by the same factory in China that produce Belkin gear.

Hey, I have Orcon Genius too however how do I keep it live Internet all the time as I go to use Internet and it won't work on my Mac. It takes a few minutes to work or I have to reboot Mac to start using Internet again. Yet that's a dam hassle so any help would be great thanks

Might be having issues passing DNS to the Mac for some reason... try setting a static IP and DNS to the Mac and see if that helps.
