    talk talk wireless broadband help please

    hi, my uncle has talk talk broadband and has asked me if its possible for him to go wireless.
    im not sure what wireless ( if any) router or whatever you call it he needs as it goes through his bt phone line? i have virgin broadband which is a little different from a phone line set up somthing to do with adsl or somthing.

    what im getting at is can he go and buy a new modem which allows wireless or does he have to spur off of his box he has at the moment? if anyone could help me on this i would be greatfull also if you can point me in the right direction on what he needs to buy to be wireless. thanks.

    Just need a router with a built in modem, adsl2+ is better, linksys make some good ones.

    Hi i have just gone with talktalk and got sent a D LINK dsl-264r wireless router .
    look up which one he has and go to talktalk support.
    Or I rang them and only took 5 min in total to get a xp laptop and a vista laptop connected.
    Was very very very easy.

    I think talktalk will send him a new wireless router if he does not have one.

    good idea, i think hes been with them for a couple of years now so i guess they may send him a new one, worth a try!

    i got a wireless router from talktalk in the end.. they charge £30 for it- but i didn't pay. tried VERY hard to get them to just 'give' it to me for being a customer for so long, but to no avail. they said if i renewed my contract i could have it for 'free'..18m tied in with them, but i dont mind..plus £30 cashback over the next 6months..£5 p/month credited back to the account. had to fight for this one though.. works perfectly- though it huwaui or sommat and not d-link. g router. id rather have an n.

    edt. tight beggars they are. but im on an old skool fab call plan, so im not gonna leave em too soon.

    They gave me a free router for been an existing customer....

    Was out of contract, and didn't have to renew, got a letter a year or two ago saving as a customer reward I could have a free router or £20 credit onto our bill.
