floydie: ip config shows lan addy as btw

I have an HG556a

Are there other wifi signals on the same channel? They could be interferring and thus preventing you from connecting.

Best bet is to connect an ethernet cable from your PC to a LAN port of the router.

If I remember right the username and password are both admin (or maybe advanced). I have OpenWRT on mine so forget vodafone's default settings.
