Yes you can connect the LAN ports with a network cable from your 3G router to one of your old router LAN ports
Before connecting the 2nd router:
Check it does not have a conflicting IP.
Check it is in the same subnet
ie if 3G router is 192.168.0.1
Set old router to 192.168.0.10
subnet mask 255.255.255.0
gateway is 192.168.0.1
Set DHCP off on 2nd router.
Set WIFI to Same SSID, same password and authentication
ensure it is on a different channel though.(not automatic on either)
Finally just to make sure remove any WAN settings from your router, any old ADSL config etc so that it doesnt think it is a gateway.
1. Wrong password and ISP information - double check that everything your ISP has asked you to put in is correct
2. Bad phone connection - even if the ADSL light comes on (which means the router can see an ADSL connection from your phone provider) does not mean the line is clean. Pull out all the connections to your home phone, and just plug in the router to get it all up and running. Once happy reconnect one at a time all phones, digi boxes etc.
3. Adding to 2. - have you got a splitter? If so, change your splitter or reconnect, splitters can fail quite easily and get old fast - a bad splitter creates a lot of noise on the line, making the internet time out
It could be a router fault, they last about 4 years before they start doing silly things. But likely one of the above.
Try two sites once you are happy :
www.speedtest.net - to check your connection speed www.pingtest.net - to check line quality
If BT tested the phone line is OK but did AOL test the connection to the Netgear router and get the IP address of your Netgear router.
The phone connection is OK but the ADSL connection from the telephone exchange may not be working, that is why you are not getting an ADSL light.
