Did you put the spoofed MAC address in the "Specify a MAC address" field? And if so, does that field not have to be selected?
but ive since update the FW and reset a couple of times.
Im sure the reason the router was not getting an external IP was due to the ammount of kit that thad been plugged in with in such a short period of time.
the install engineer tested it with his laptop.
It was then plugged directly into my PC (and speeds were tat)
Tested with a laptop (speeds still tat)
i might be mistaken....
easy way to test mind you.
find the mac address of yuor PC that does connect
(open CMD and run IPCONFIG /all)
copy MAC address to router.

Ok, I spoofed the MAC address of the D-Link router on the Vigor and it's worked a treat. Many thanks for your advice
Happy that you got it sorted.

Had to reboot the router this morning to tidy the cabling, and when it came back up it wouldn't connect. Tried phoning Virgin - what a mistake that was. 3 x calls to their Indian call centre and an hour and a half later I had had two hang up on me and one being very rude.
Am now back to using the D-Link for now

I have a Draytek 2820 and it works fine. Initial problems were a little like this. Power cycle the cable modem (wait 30s or so with it off) as people told me it remembers the MAC address of the last thing connected. After I did that it all worked perfectly. I do not spoof the mac address. Let me know if you want any other help with settings.
