I've just had the most futile and stressful experience yet of 2006. Endless problems. The whole idea is it sits between your PC and your router without changing anything. I eventually manage to set it up and get the VVC icon on, but then there's no dial tone. Then, I have endless IP address problems. I changed the IP address of it to 192.168.0.1, and now I can't access it at all - and to top it off completely, the reset button doesn't work. The whole idea is you simply plug it between your pc and your router, click activate and you're away. The truth couldn't be further from this. Do not waste time/money on this box of misery.
