A friend has just swapped out his computer and connected it to his Spark DSL internet connection in this manner -

Telephone jack to splitter, splitter to modem/router, router (one of the spare LAN ports) to computer.

No internet!

I'm not au fait with DSL, so any ideas would be appreciated.   I assume that no static IP or gateway/DNS addresses are necessary?

I understand the owner went through the little instruction booklet, and all appropriate lights are up.

I'll find out the make/model of modem and look at Spark site before visitng site myself tomorrow.

Could be no data transfer.
DSL light solid? Internet light flashing?
