Wireless Router Help - Virgin Media

I am currently with Virgin Media and have just upgraded and received a wireless router on their 10mg BB.

The router only has an Ethernet connection as an input in the back yet my BB is from a coax cable into the current NTL modem that I have.

Is there a wireless router that accepts coax input or do i need some sort of connector?

Prob just gonna end up contacting Virgin but thought somebody might know here.

Dunno about yours but my NTL modem has an ethernet connector. Just connect that to the WAN port on your router using a standard ethernet cable and you're sorted.

You plug the existing modem into the router via Ethernet. The router won't have an in-built modem, NTL/Virgin don't tend to give out all in one solutions.

Slight hijack, does anyone know what power supply a Linksys WRT54G has.

I have Virgin broadband, and was given one by a friend, but without a power supply. There is no indication on the casing what voltage/Ampage it uses.

As has been said, Cable routers DO NOT include the modem, so you leave the modem in the connection, and it goes

CABLE INTO HOUSE -> MODEM - > ROUTER -> PC

ADSL routers on the other hand do include the modem and are combined modem/routers.

thanks for all your help. will try tonight.

Is this not going to dilute the connection speed?

Nope, I'm assuming the router includes at least a 10/100MB switch "the bit you connect to other computers) which means it's at least 5 times faster than Virgins fastest package. It might even be gigabit, which is even faster. Even the wireless connection is faster than Virgins max speed.
