Yes, a D-Link DI-614+. Any router should work as long as you have an ethernet (as opposed to USB) interface for your Woosh modem.

sorry, not wireless, my bad.

I have tried a D-Link DI-704UP which as you say should have worked.
I used to have a DSE XH1151 which worked fine for a while then ****ed out.
DSE no longer sell or support them.
Woosh helpdesk have tested only 2 models a Zyxel Prestige sold by Harvey Norman and the DSE one.
They both suck and they offer no support or other alternatives.
I have a D-Link DI-504G but that is an ASDL Router.

I'm not sure of the relevance of whether you want to use wireless or ethernet cables. After all, if your router isn't achieving a WAN connection through the Woosh modem, then the connection between the router and your workstation(s) is not the source of the problem.

Are these routers achieving a PPPoE connection successfully? I assume they're not, in which case the best place to start would be to look at the router's connection logs.

Without having any more specific details about your problem, the first thing that I would suggest is to go into the router configuration and ensure that the 'use PPP echo packets' option is turned off. This caused me endless problems when I originally attempted to use the ethernet interface with my Woosh modem.

Hi

I have my woosh modem connected directly to my Dick Smith XH1151. I remember I had a lot of greif with it a while back (had to keep pressing the reset button) but it has been bullet proof for the last 18 months. I'm running the following firmware version 01.00.00.11 (you can still download this from the DSE website). Make sure that MTU is set at 1400 not 1492 (seemed to help).

Hope you can get the little sucker working!!!

I've used several routers to connect a Woosh modem using PPPoE - Netgear's, USRobotics', D-Link's and so on..., and haven't found a problem.

Just make sure you've told the router to use PPPoE, put your full username in ('username@woosh.co.nz'), and I think the MTU is meant to be 1458 max for Woosh.
