Using a UK router on Swisscom

I have a working Netgear router (DG834GT) which I want to use instead of my Swisscom Motorola one. I have connected it correctly, but the green ADSL light does not come on. I tried the router settings page (, but the Netgear setup wizard says "no internet connection detected, check ADSL cable". This is the same Swisscom one (a purple RJ11 to RJ11) from the splitter and filter.
Any ideas what to try? Could the Swiss cable have reversed internal wiring, and the UK router need a different set up?
Thanks for any ideas.
