Alright m8, 2 of my mates have had this problem, and they both had to go out and get a new lead, NTL have been telling people to get a th ewrong lead, well sort of , there are 2 types of the same , lead sorry i cant remember the name at the min, but it is the Crossover cable you need , which ntl dont tell u to get , u are better off phoning NTL up , adn asking them for the name of specific lead, if this dont work, mail me later , as my m8 is coming round , and he got his sussed

Look on the back of your cable box.
If it says "X Ethernet" you need a cross over cable ( RJ45 ), if it says "Ethernet" you need a straight cable.
