Hi,

i am having trouble setting connecting my dreambox to certain devices.
If i plug it directly into my adsl router then it can be seen by my pc and it can see the internet. i can download plugins though the blue button and i have the satankey updater working.
if i try to plug it into my Zoom ethernet game port adapter or a laptop nothing happens. on the laptop it doesnt even recognise that a lan cable has been plugged in.
The settings on m dreambox are

IP: 192.168.0.5
DHCP: checked (the netgear router is dhcp i believe)
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
Nameserver: 192.168.0.1
Gateway: 192.168.0.1
Port:80
network type: LAN
Allow network: checked

My router IP is 192.168.0.1
Laptop is set to obtain IP automatically.

can anybody see where im going wrong?

Is it a crossover cable? Surely this is a laptop issue? I've never tried connecting a PC directly to a Dreambox so maybe someone else can help there.

Zoom ethernet game port adapter
Is this wireless? Are you sure this even works on a Dreambox?

i have tried both a cross over cable and a normal cable. the laptop ethernet port works ok.
The zoom is wireless.
I had the zoom working with the dreambox a while ago, but changed my iSP to sky and had to have a new wireless router.

i have got a work around so far for this but its not ideal. i can now connect the dreambox to the laptop. The laptop then connects wirelessly to the sky router. I can acess the web on the laptop while the dreambox is plugged in to the laptop. Therefore i cant use the dreambox to connect to the web directly. i am having to download the keys to the laptop,then i plug in the cable to the dreambox and ftp them over.

The equipment i have available is:

sky netgear router IP 192.168.0.1 must be used
Dreambox IP 192.168.0.5
an old linksys wireless adsl router (can i use this as a standard router? how do i connect it, wirelessly to the sky router?)
Zoom wireless ethernet adapter

can anyone tell me how i can get my dreambox connected to the internet all the time, using all or some of the equipment above?

cheers
