Have also tried to talk to router working on the basis that no driver should be required etc, So tried http://192.168.0.1 to configure but still will not connect.
This is strange phenomenon as this modem/router is now about 7 years old and has been trouble free with all machines and OS's that I have used, both Linux & Win XP
The machine is dual booted with Linux Mint 17 Mate and the newly installed Win 7. The machine is fairly new and well spec'd with AMD64.
Discussed on phone with tech @ Farmside and he tells me I need an IT technician.
Any thoughts ???
