Hi there

Just got VDLS2 installed, and have my old telecom provided thompson adsl modem,

i want to connect the thompson to my network and make it an access point upstairs.

so i went and plugged the thompson into the technicolor into its lan1 port and set the thompson router to 192.168.1.1 since technicolor is 192.168.1.254 and turned off the dhcp off in the thompson when i connect my pc to the thompson via etherner plugged into one of the free Ethernet ports on the thompson the internet works for about 2 minutes then windows network says the router is a unrecognized device and the internet stops working, wifi seems to work ok on the thompson just the Ethernet is playing up.

have i missed changing something, or can the thompson only be used as wifi access point, with no Ethernet am i better off getting a new router

Cheers.
