im glad you have got it up and running.had this installed and worked ok but now it wont work at all.only had it 7 months.

"...for both Cable and BT internet".

It will only work on a BT line if you daisychain it onto an existing BT line modem. This is NOT a standard BT/ADSL wireless router.

I would pay £5 more for the WRT54GS one. I have that one and its been working 24/7 for the past 3 years.

can somebody give me some advice please...

i have a desktop connected to broadband, but its not a wireless router. Now i have a laptop that i would like to connect using the same broadband connection, do i need a wireless router?

like the one advirtised here? or can i just call up my provider and they will give me one for free?

If your router has ethernet ports then you can connect your laptop via a standard ethernet cable. No need for a wireless router.

But if you it doesn't - then you need to buy a wireless router.
Google it for more info.

You can also get the Zyxel P660HWUK01 which is the same router but an ADSL/BT one for the same price at PC world I just put the one link up for the cable version

your wireless connections probably need configuring if you've messed with them

thanks mate

that would mean me sitting close enough to the router in order to plug in the laptop? i want to be able to connect the laptop wherever i am in the house so i think i need wireless

its a new laptop so i presume it will be able to accept a wireless network? (not sure how it works to be honest lol) but i dont want to fork out big money for a new router, do broadband companies provide these for free if you take out a new subscription/contract?

This has a wireless adapter in case your laptop does not have built in wireless.

If you change provider, they'll probably give you a free wireless router. If you ask your existing provider then they will probably try to charge you. I know Virgin Media charge £40.
It all now depends on who your broadband provider is, as there are two types of broadband and therefore two types of wireless router. If you are with Virgin Media then you need a "Cable/DSL" wireless router (like the one in this post) which will connect to your existing Virgin modem. Or, if you are with anyone else i.e. a BT type telephone line, then you need an ADSL modem router, which will totally replace your existing modem/router.
