ADSL Router question

Hey, I'm currently with vodafone, I used to use a DSL604G modem. I've been given an router that orcon hands out with their plans..

Now, on the 604, it only connects at ADSL1, but on the orcon router, connects at full ADSL2+..
BUT on the orcon router, it won't connect to the internet, only the exchange "/ any help? cheers

Have you reset the modem, entered your username and password, and set all the correct options?

Yep, correct username password correct, also set PPPoA with VC MUX etc etc. Not too sure. I remember that certain companies modems wouldn't work with others, eg telecom modems with vodafone as well. The ADSL light comes on, but the internet light doesn't

oh, you have the PPPoA set incorrectly...

Oh wow, I must of been on a foreign vodafone website "/

Actually I'm scratching my head now, maybe I'm wrong and why does my modem still work? :

VPI=100, VCI=0, VC MUX. Doesn't connect to Internet because password is incorrect.

And incorrect password is easily verified by examining the log file.

Cheers, I'll reset it and try it - thank god for iPhone hotspot or i'd be offline "/

Alternatively, you might be able to upgrade the firmware on your old 604 to make it ADSL2+ capable.Give it a google if you reach a dead-end with the Orcon router.
