Advice needed re wireless router with O2 Home Broadband.

I will be going on to O2 Home Broadband soon, although a router is included I was going to use a different one to the one supplied.

I have available a Belkin N Wireless router model no. F5D8236uk4 and Netgear N150 Wirless Router WNR1000. System reuirements for Belkin = Cable OR ADSL modem and for the Netgear = Cable OR DSL Modem.

Are either OR Both of these going to work with O2 (via BT line) and which would be the better of the two?

Yes it does say cable on the box but ALSO states works with ADSL likewise the Netgear also says cable and ALSO DSL, hence my confusion.:thinking:

Belkin F5Z0103UK N Wireless ADSL2+ Modem Router + 4 Port Switch With Belkin N Wireless USB Adaptor

this is the one for telephone lines,

the netgear is a cable one as well ,

cable ones are just the routers as the modem is separate,

telephone line one are modem + router as the phone line has no modem,
