    Not quite what I wanted the full subjectline to be. it should *REALLY* have

    Whose got a D-Link DSL-300G+ ADSL Modem in the Coventry area whose prepared
    to let me bring mine round to prove its not duff!

    I've got connection probs (currently - hopefully - escalated to BT by Pipex)
    but I'd just like to eradicate that niggling feeling that my kit is actually
    still ok.

    If there's anyone out there who would be prepared to let me bring my kit
    round to hook up to their PC and ISP (using their username and password in
    order to prove that my kit works on their connection), there could be
    beers/flowers/chocolates as appropriate.

    if on actually using it the thing strikes me as krap kit. What's not

    Well I'm not in the Coventry area, but I think I am having the same
    problems that you are having. I am also on Pipex.....

    However, I think the problem is with the modem itself rather than with
    the adsl line.

    Maybe we should start a new thread entitled "Does anybody have a
    D-Link DSL-300+ and not have problems?"

    Well after ten hours of faffling around, I've cut my losses and ordered
    the adslnation one. The dlink is going on ebay if I'm in a good mood and
    under a large mallet if I'm not. No more dlink for me, ever. Life is
    too short for these crooks. An exhaustive search through Google shows
    complaints about the dhcpserver renewal problem going back at least a
    year, so dlink must be assumed to have no intention of fixing what they
    must know to be a serious problem with this unit. At that's without the
    utterly misleading packaging which fails to say that the modem is only
    intended for direct connection to a single PC, even though in the event
    a connection of sorts can be had with some (not all) routers.

    I own one of these, that is on the other side of a D-Link DI-624+ wireless
    router. I'm with Virgin BB and have no problems at all. I get a lease time
    of 1 week, although I guess that is from the router not the modem.

    Not near Cov either!!

    As Jonathan Buzzard wisely points out in an earlier thread, the unit
    does actually work. But mine is now wired to a dlink 804vh router and
    the constant dhcp renewing does interfere with the datastream to some
    degree from my testing today, although if you are just doing some
    surfing and emailing you won't notice. In addition, it completely knocks
    out the router's ability to do logging. The log is overwhelmed with
    release/renew data in about one minute. If the unit accepted atmos
    commands that would allow the problem parameters to be changed, none of
    this would be a problem. But that's all screwed up too.

    I've been trying to get a D-Link DSL-300G+ to work reliably with a USR
    Broadband Router for about three months. An earlier poster to this
    newsgroup suggested trying a PPPoE connection rather that the officially BT
    supported PPPoA.

    Two weeks up and running without a problem.

    The only snag is I don't know it this option is available on all BT
    broadband enabled exchanges.

    But it worked for me.

    had read thru the various threads dealing with this and to be honest i'd
    never noticed the short lease time, now i'm finding myself looking at this
    and it does kinda drive me insane :)

    that said it seems a good unit and the clients like it as it looks nice
