What a rubbish day i have had If it wasn't for the pub lunch i would be more moody.
Zen have swiched us over to LLU with all the 21CN that goes with it and when i came in this morning I found my ever reliable BeWan ASDSL modem in my smoothie isn't compatable Such a shame as I liked having the ability to sort out problems from one box... and the nice reboot on errors that smoothwall had so if the line went down it rebooted itself.
Anyway I was in a ruch and CCL didn't have much choice in the shop so I got a Belkin ADSL2+ G router. Eventually got it working (the port forwarding baffled me... why change the name to virtual server???) but I can't get the bridging working on the router.
Can anyone recommend a ADSL2+ router thats nice and reliable which does bridging with smoothwall.... prefer the bridging method as the Lan method I am using now just doesn't seem right.

I feel your pain; my Draytek Vigor 120 stopped getting a PPP connection via IPCop after the 21CN switchover (though curiously it works fine when plugged into a Windows box). The Vigor 110 still works great, but they are discontinued - actual ADSL modems are a real rarity these days.

Have you asked the guys at Smoothwall to see if they have anything they can recommend at all?

It's a hard call - they keep discontinuing the good stuff and replacing it with cheap
We're working on finding a decent adsl2+ internal, there's some aussie chappies building one that might "do a job". I'll see what support think - we use linksys AM200 in the office, but they are also discontinued afaik

Vigor 120 *should* work from the spec. I'll see if i can get one and make support bite the bullet first before recommending it!

Netgear do some modems with a RJ45 port on it, not sure on the model I got but I use it is my router every fails, plug in and go for me.

I bought a Vigor 120 and it runs like a dog... need to check it without the smoothie when the kids go home but its only getting 1meg throughput.
