    Wanted: Dsl Modem & Router

    Hi guys, just wondered if anybody could give me some advise on a dsl modem/router. Ive currently got a desktop pc (non wifi) with a basic dsl modem supplied through vigin media(ntl) however I have plans to buy a wifi enabled laptop so therefore need to go "wireless". Ive been told from a friend who installs wireless connections that buying a dsl router with a modem built in is a better choice than 2 seperate units because there is less headaches when installing. Im on cable 10mb connection, could anybody advise as to any possible makes/models, im looking to spend around 50 pound.
    My kids have psps so I would probably have to get those set up with the wifi too.
    Many thanks for any responses..

    Hi, Welcome to the forums!!!

    Are you looking to buy one from another member, as this might be in the wrong forum if not.

    i have 2 for sale, one is a netgear dg834g v3 one is a dlink g604t both are very good brands and i can sell to you for 42 pounds sent today.

    Many people know dlink and netgear are the main names in routers. These are both g spec wireless 2

    i also have tested these with my adsl2+ package with no problems.

    I have 10mb connection with NTL/Virgin and i am running a Netgear WGT624 which i brought from someone off here and it's perfect for what you want. Obviously i'm not selling mine but you can get them off eBay for around £25 delivered.

    [SIZE=2]You don't want one with a built in modem as it will not work on the network as NTL/Virgin will not recognise it as it's not their equipment.[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=2]By the way, mines running a PSP, DS and a Laptop via Wi-Fi with this.[/SIZE]

    Hope

    Do these work with cable broadband?

    it is a dsl modem as he stated, and i have used it with my 10meg + service

    Do these work with cable broadband?



    I wouldn't have thought so as ADSL routers won't work on a cable broadband connection.

    Just seen the reply so ignore what i said, if they've been tested then obviously so.

    but i dont know if i have cable or adsl? i know my speed is 10meg tho

    dlinks are very good for psps and gaming

    Welcome from to too daniel168 and Hope

    A refurbished Netgear WGT624 (as suggested by Syzable) is available for £24.99 + del ]>here

    Just double checked both of these modems Hope and they DO NOT work with DSL (NTL/Virgin), but are ADSL only (BT/Pipex etc.)

    Daniel168 - for the one i have new with warranty is £49.54 delivered from ebuyer. Here - ]http//ww…=UK

    As i say, it's ideal for what you want and you can also get one new for half that price on eBay.
