I have a similar problem with the
THOMSON ST546 and SPARKLAN WX 6800-II,
i have tried everything... for almost half a year.
i consider myself tech savy but nothing is really helping.
i could not really even connect my computer to it at the start and had to dumb down my wired connection by making the connection type to 10baseT full duplex instead of 100baseTx full duplex.
now ive been using a soft AP solution. but we need to move the furniture around, and well the problem never left...
its not our house, so the THOMSON ST546 is my landlords, so i cant change it physically , but i have access to the settings.

Connected the CST-5 in the following manner.
1). one cable from speedtouch LAN port to sparklan WAN port
2). one cable from sparklan LAN port to the computer network port.
3). disable the DHCP from the parklan (consult your users manual how to do that).
4). restart all of the equipment in the following order. (This is important)
speedtouch, sparklan, computer, laptop.

do not rate the answer till you have the whole thing figure out.

Cant connect to the internrt via talktalk modem


Hello,

This could easily be an issue with either your TalkTalk internet connection or your Wii. I did experience issues connecting my Nintendo Wii console at first too, but after getting a new router, it works just fine.

The Nintendo Wii console has never been a very good internet-enabled console anyway, and alot of wireless settings will not be compatible with it.

Make sure that your TalkTalk router is using WEP or WPA-PSK security. You can also try changing the Wireless Channel and MTU Size. make sure the MTU size is set at 1450, the channel can be anything, but only a few should work. You can access these settings easily by just going to Internet Explorer and typing in:
  1. 192.168.1.1 for D-Link and Huawei
  2. 192.168.0.1 for Netgear
  3. 192.168.1.254 for Thompson Speedtouch
If TalkTalk did supply your router, then it should be one of the models mentioned above.

If you have any laptops or phones that use the wireless and it works fine, then it may just be the Wii console. TalkTalk will not support the Wii or any video game console so there's no point in calling them for support.
I work for TalkTalk as a senior technician, so I hope this information helps.
Take Care.

Have you gone into the SPARKLan and configured it yet? It should be like this Speedtouch>SPARKLan>your computer in to the SPARKLan.
Turn on your new routers SSID so it can be "found" by the wireless devices. You should turn OFF the DHCP server in the Speedtouch and turn DHCP ON in the SPARKLan.

Hope this helps.
