I recently purchased the Linksys Wireless N Home WAG120N and I've hooked it up correctly but I can't seem to establish a connection with the DSL light. I've tried hooking it up to different ends in my house with no improved results, however, my older modem works fine.

Any help would be greatly appreciated,

Cheers

it's going through a phone/adsl filter, although there's no phone plugged into it

Take the cable out of the back of a phone handset and plug it into the back of your modem. That way you'll be able to plug the modem into a standard phone output.

Had the same problem an a Telecom line in Tauranga with a Dynalink. ADSL would not sync. Gave up and put her old one back on and used the Dynalink at home in Auckland with no problems..

Yeah, I'm beginning to think it has something with my lines which is probably the worst possible thing

Type 192.168.1.1 into the address bar of internet explorer and press enter - this should take you to the modem setup page. If it asks for a username and password, they will both be admin

On this page there should be an option for DSL Modulation. Try setting this to G.DMT and see if you get a DSL light that way.
