Hi and thanks for such a swift reply.

I'm in the UK and have a separate modem.
Modem is as provided by BT.
Dynamic IP

I presume in most cases it should connect fine. We recommend having the ISP modem hand over a public IP address or give all NAT operations to the DIR series router. Unless the ISP modem can't however if it has a DMZ, you could use the modems DMZ for the routers IP address...

Unfortunately the TalkTalk screen says that the router is "Not TV Ready"!

Anyone got any ideas how to overcome this?

"Not TV Ready"  ??? Meaning that the DIR-850L isn't TV ready?

I'd phone contact your ISP and ask them about what router is supported and what this TV Ready means?? Maybe instead of getting a DIR series router, maybe getting into a D-Link DAP model AP is all that you need...Use the ISP modem as your main host router...

Thanks for your advice - I have no idea what "Not TV ready" means, either!

Let us know what you find out from the ISP...
