Thats the most I can find regarding the wireless router, maybe worth £50, but it does to a lot more than a normal one, like VoIP and TV on demand

VoIP and TV on demand



What are these?

erm,
VoIP - [SIZE=-1]Voice over Internet Protocol, basically you can make phone calls over the internet, for free, or a small charge.

TV on demand - BT are launching BT Vision, a new TV package, like sky. I think. With a home hub you will be able to order Movies and Music when you want to watch them.

Also there is BT Fusion, whereby you take your mobile phone contract out with BT mobile, and when ever you enter you house, the home hub will switch your mobile into a landline phone, therefore cheaper calls.

That sounds cool - I wonder how I could hook up my LCD TV to this?
