Using a Wireless Box II and have been having a few minor speed issues and connection drops over the past week or so. Had a rummage around in my router settings for the first time in ages and found in the Home>Home Network>Devices the following listing :-

What on earth is FarEast?. :eek: :confused:

I only have my main PC and an HP printer connected to the ethernet ports 1 and 2 on the back of the router, nothing is in Ethernet port 3.

Status: inactive would imply that its something that has been connected to port 3 and is still in the ARP cache. Its not an O2 thing

Hmmm.

Well, this afternoon my connection started playing up and I disconnected the yellow cable from Port 1 which goes between the PC network connection port and the router and plugged it into Port 3 to see if it worked from there.

Could that be something to do with it?. I removed it and plugged it back into Port 1 as per usual and then my connection came back online about 30 mins later so it was most probably nothing to do with the router, more likely line/connection probs.

If you're unsure about telnetting to it, I wouldnt bother fiddling around in there. Its not doing any harm so I'd just leave it :)
